Serving up competition on Artificial and Indoor slopes as well as snow-capped Mountain resorts, the Orange AIM Series is based on open entry and competitors compete in age categories, catering for all tastes, ages and performance levels. By promoting the country’s leading slopes, and actively introducing schoolchildren to the thriving community of talented freestylers through the Schools Tour, it’s fair to claim that the UK is fast becoming a hotbed of freestyle talent.
A vast selection of UK’s top snowsport athletes and Olympic hopefuls have developed through the Orange AIM Series and over 5,000 beginners have tried snowboarding and skiing through the free lesson initiative over the last four year’s.
