BST Bus
We’re all going on a summer holiday… The British Snow Tour bus will be making its third stop of the series at Warmwell Holiday Park on the weekend of 29th & 30th September, for the Quiksilver British Snowboard/Freeski Big Air Championships and Quarterpipe Jam. Prior to the weekend’s competition, the British Snow Tour Schools Team will be heading into two Dorset schools on the 27th and 28th September to inspire over 1,000 school pupils to get active and offer them the great gift of a FREE ski/snowboard lesson at Dorset Snowsports Centre whilst the Championship event is in action.

The Quiksilver British Artificial Big Air Championships Over the weekend, Dorset Snowsports Centre will witness approximately 150 of the UK’s snowboard and ski elite showcasing impressive tricks over the huge 8m jump for the Quiksilver British Artificial Big Air Championships. With 2007 British Snowboard Big Air Champion, Si Brass, hanging up his boots for the day to fulfil his event duties as start referee, the Artificial title is for the taking and those ready to snap it up, include big hitters Jamie Nicholls and Ben Knox. On the female side, hot favourites to take the title on home turf include 2007 British Snowboard Big Air and Snowboardcross Champion Jo Chastney and freeskier Teri Spencer, who placed 2nd in the 2006 British Big Air Championships and 5th in the 2007 British Slopestyle Championships. In the morning’s Quarterpipe Jam, riders will show off their skills, inspired by the chance of winning one of the four prestigious spots to compete in the Invitational British Quarterpipe Championships at the Metro show, Friday 26th October. UK talent will have the opportunity to showcase their skills in front of thousands of spectators and compete alongside super stars, Dom Harrington, and Paddy Graham, to name just a few! New to the British Snow Tour, Nike 6.0 will be running a ‘Killing It’ competition, where an exclusive ‘money can’t buy’ prize will be up for grabs. This will be awarded to the snowboarder who pulls off the biggest and most impressive tricks throughout the day. During the championships, Salomon and Faction Ski’s will also be dishing out new set-ups in the “Salomon Best Un-sponsored” and Faction Ski’s “Step Up” awards. Schools Tour The British Snow Tour team, accompanied this week by Ride’s Ben Knox, will again be taking over the PE curriculum for the day in each school, holding high impact, interactive presentations to over 1,000 pupils, and offering them FREE beginner ski or snowboard lessons, courtesy of Quiksilver, during the Championships at Dorset Snowsports Centre. Local pro and ‘brains’ of the schools tour team, Sonia Shaw commented; “It’s great to have the Championships at my home slope again and I’m stoked about going into the schools to encourage more local kids to get involved and see them in action on their free lesson.” British Snow Tour Schedule Thursday 27th September: - Budmouth Technology College Friday 28th September: - Wey Valley Sports College Friday evening, Dorset Snowsports Centre: – FREE snowboard coaching for anyone looking for that extra bit of freestyle know-how plus FREE product testing, try out next seasons snowboard equipment from Salomon, K2 and Ride.
