Snowsport enthusiasts outside the UK may find it hard to believe that some of our best up and coming ski and snowboarding talent comes from Buckinghamshire; a county with no mountains (but some super hills!) and so far this year – zero snow.

Thanks to the fantastic indoor facilities at Snozone, Milton Keynes is nurturing a great number of Winter Olympians and many of them made their way to Buckinghamshire’s first ski and snowboarding show, which drew some 13,000 people. Spectators to the Sno Xpo at Snozone within Xscape were treated to a fantastic display of talent, including Snozone Sponsored Riders Sarah Glasgow, 13, race ski; Jake Binnee, 14 freestyle board; Will Gilmore, 11, freestyle board; Skyla Baily, 14, boarder cross, Mason Ferebee, 14, freestyle ski, Jade Walsh, 12, freestyle board and Snozone veteran Gary Walsh, 44.

Celebrating the start of the 2014/15 season, 763 people took to the slopes, for sledging, recreational skiing, snowboarding and professional coaching. The ski and snowboard show spread far and wide within Xscape with a German market, live entertainment and performers, along with a showcase of winter season equipment and apparel. In the evening a Bavarian themed party encouraged many to stick around for their first dose of Apres Ski for the 2014/15 season at Snozone.
