Sporting activities have been permitted by the Government to return following lockdown despite wider restrictions because of the benefits of sport and physical activity for people’s physical and mental wellbeing.

However, if people act irresponsibly when participating in sport (including off the slope / track, and when socialising before and after activity) they risk jeopardising public health and undermining the case we have made for safe sport to take place.

Facilities, clubs and coaches should ensure that activity is run safely, and should take action to address any issues, including putting in place additional measures or suspending those who do not adhere to guidance. If there are serious or consistent concerns with a particular sport which are not addressed, then it has been made clear that approval may be revoked so that the sport cannot take place.

We therefore ask all those taking part in snowsport to act responsibly and play their part in protecting the opportunity for snowsport for everyone.
