The English Sporting World Start to Recognise English Snowsport Athletes and Clubs.
District Councils and County Sport Partnerships have local sports
awards however not often are Snowsports represented within the
nominations and sports such as football, rugby and tennis take all the
glory. There is a huge Snowsport scene within England that a lot of
people outside of our sport do not seem to know about.
this is all starting to change. Jo Willoughby this year has won awards
at the Yorkshire Woman of Achievement Ceremony before going on to win
Sports Person of the Year with a Disability Award at the MBNA Northern
Sports Award 2011. While further South at the St Albans Sports Awards
2011 Max Baggio has won the Elite Performer of the year (under 21) Award
and Team Evolution were runners up for Team of the Year (Club) Award!
Each has an individual article.

achievements and what we do, so as many people outside of our sport as
possible realise that you can take part in snowsports in England right
on your door step.
