Snowsport England are delighted to see that Mia Brookes has deservedly won The Times Young Sportswoman Of The Year Award 2023.

Mia burst on to the scene in dramatic style, winning the Slopestyle World Championships in Bakuriani, Georgia earlier this year as a 16 Year Old at her first attempt! Mia showed her incredible winning mentality when already guaranteed a silver medal, she decided to throw in the first-ever CAB 1440 double grab in a Women’s FIS competition to take the Gold medal and assert herself as the new benchmark for Freestyle Snowboarding whillst also being the youngest ever Snowboard World Champion and the first British person to win a Snowboard Slopestyle World Championships!

Having grown up Snowboarding from a very young age around Europe, Mia was a regular at Kidsgrove Ski Centre in Stoke Ski and Chill Factore and was picked up by the GBS Freestyle coaches as a 10 year old whilst in Laax. Off of the snow, Mia regularly spends time with our friends over at Graystone Action Sports!

Mia has also won the Gold medal at the  2022 Junior Big Air Championships, whilst picking up the Silver medal in the Slopestyle at the same Championships.
