Variety is the spice of life!
Embarking on its fourth year the Orange AIM Series has got a new motto as it goes south and releases its 2005 dates.
Continuing the success of the Orange AIM Series, the UK’s snowboard and freestyle ski championships circuit will spread its artificial wings to check out the talent at Rossendale, Bracknell and Warmwell dryslopes this summer/ autumn.
Stuart Brass of Soulsports comment on the move:
“There are many existing slopes investing large sums of money into developing freestyle arenas, and to reward such enterprise, it’s seems only fitting that these slopes be given the opportunity to host National Championship legs of the Orange AIM Series. Also, working with new schools & new media provides an excellent opportunity to replicate the accomplishments of the Series in 3 new areas - creating as it has done, pockets of Snowsports enthusiasts. Let’s spread the love around!”
