Help us develop our winter stars of the future

Our Great British Snowsport teams are achieving something special. Never before have we had so many world-class athletes representing Great Britain in our sports. So we are looking to secure this legacy for the future success and development of upcoming talent from all areas of Great Britain. Our support goes to develop all young athletes from any background and to raise awareness of these amazing opportunities.

British athletes are breaking new ground...

Athletes like Charlie Guest, Andrew Musgrave, Charlotte Bankes, Kirsty Muir, Millie Knight, James Barnes-Miller, Gabe Adams, Mia Brookes, James Woods and Zoe and Izzy Atkin are breaking new ground on the world’s biggest stages every week, but it all had to start somewhere.

1625641960_athletes_grid.jpgBehind every athlete who steps onto the snow to represent Great Britain is a story of commitment and sacrifice. Representing a nation that lacks the natural resources of so many of our competitors requires an astonishing level of dedication from British snowsport athletes and the means to ensure their skill and talent is not lost to the country.

Britain has a golden future in the world’s biggest snowsport competitions, but only if we can support the next generation of athletes in the same way we are able to support today’s.

Who we are...

GB Snowsport and the British Ski and Snowboard National Foundation (BSSNF) are working to open doors for a new generation of athletes to compete at the very highest levels of snowsport. By supporting more young athletes in full-time education and more disabled athletes to progress to the highest levels, we can cement the nation’s snowsport legacy and ensure tomorrow’s world class performers are given every opportunity to succeed.

The grants and bursaries provided by the British Ski and Snowsport National Foundation have supported many of Britain’s leading snowsport athletes, including Mia Brookes, Kirsty Muir and Mateo Jeannesson. By supporting our new fundraising drive for BSSNF, you will be ensuring that the nation’s brightest prospects are given every opportunity to succeed, and to help put more British athletes on podiums than ever before.
