Spectacular Snowsports

Instructor demonstrating skiing technique to group of children

Wednesday the 26th of October saw the first ever ASN snowsport festival take place at the Aberdeen Snowsport Centre. There was mixture of primary, secondary and special schools in attendance, with over 30 children taking part. Each school had a mixture of skiing and tubing under the watchful eyes of the snowsport staff. The children learned a lot about balance, stability and trying new things.

Morag Taylor from Dyce Academy said, “It was an excellent event with very supportive staff. We love participating in the events from the calendar that allow our children to have opportunities that they don’t normally have.”

The event was part of the ASN school sport calendar, in partnership with different organisations, to provide a range of sporting opportunities for ASN children across Grampian.  A massive thank you to Aberdeen Snowsport Centre for their role in creating this very exciting opportunity. The next event will be inclusive basketball at the Beach Leisure Centre .
