The Snowlife snowsport awards are nationally recognised awards for skiing and snowboarding. They’ve been developed by UK Governing Bodies for skiing and snowboarding and BASI (British Association of Snowsport Instructors).
How much will it cost?
Not a lot. Just start lessons at your local artificial slope for less than the price of a cinema ticket. Your Snowlife booklet costs £1.50 plus postage and badges for each level come in at £1.50 each plus postage. Most of the time the tests can be added on to your lesson.
What the experts think:
Alain Baxter and Lesley McKenna: Britain’s number one skier and snowboarder “We started at school and so can you. Everyone should get their own Snowlife and these awards are a great way to start. See you on the slopes!”
How the awards work:
The awards are for absolutely everybody, age and ability simply don’t come into it. And there’s no rush either – just build up your skills at a pace that suits you. The awards take you from absolute beginner through to expert, perfect if you’ve already got your sights on the most challenging pistes.
Where can I take the awards?
You can train for the awards and be tested at many UK artificial slopes. If you prefer, you can do it all on snow instead.
