Snow Camp

Motivating young people to fully engage is the key to successful youth work and we have found that snowsports are incredibly attractive to inner-city young people, despite being out-of-reach for many.

Our programmes run from July-June each year. All young people must start at the beginning on First Tracks and have no prior snowsports experience
