Two-time Winter Olympian Ben Kilner showed off his stuff at Snozone to inspire future slope-stars one year on since the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

The ‘InspiredbySochi’ weekend of events included a freestyle competition on Friday evening with a record number turning out to claim spot prizes for their impressive tricks in the park.

Ben competed in the Snowboard Halfpipe and represented Great Britain at both the Sochi 2014 and the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games.

Saturday’s action included a ‘Beat the Pro’ slalom course moguls, another testing Olympic discipline and a specially prepared freestyle park.
