After a great British Dryslope Championship series across the UK, the British Snow Tour looks forward to heading indoors, kicking off its first indoor event, the Animal British Slopestyle Championships at Castleford SNO!zone on Saturday 20th September.
With a massive local scene at Castleford, boasting names such as Dom Harrington, Laura Hill, and freeskiers James Woods and Katie Summerhays, the Animal Slopestyle Championships looks set to be an epic first indoor event. Riders will have a variety of freestyle toys to choose from including an assortment of rails, a kicker gap down box, a barrel tower and wall ride to keep all entertained (see the pic of the Slopestyle set-up, left).
Welcoming all ages, abilities, styles and outfits, the British Snow Tour isn’t just for the elite. There are prizes and medals stretched across five age categories, (kids, youth, junior, senior and masters) with TTR points, free product testing, even freebie beginner lessons up for grabs!
