Olympic stars show their support for Sense at Milton Keynes’ Snozone


May marks a proud moment for Snozone as it becomes an official partner of Sense, the charity that supports and campaigns for deafblind people.

Snozone believes that everybody should have access to winter sports and is organising an event to showcase and promote the new alliance.

Tomorrow customers will be able to book a seven-hour slope pass at Snozone Milton Keynes within Xscape for £40, 25% of all proceeds will be donated to Sense to help fund their important work, helping to change lives across the UK.

On the day of the event, the slopes will include freestyle features such as race gates where riders can try to beat the professional coaches.

Complimentary sledging sessions will be on offer to all families who are supported by Sense and Disability Snowsport UK (DSUK) will also provide taster lessons to give people with any disability the opportunity to try winter sports.

Supporting the event and fresh from the Sochi Olympics will be Freestyle Skiier Rowan Cheshire and Ski Cross racer Emily Sarsfield.

It promises to be a memorable event for skiers, snowboarders and also for spectators, who are welcome to visit and watch for free.

Sue Piper, the Coroprate Fundraising Manager at Sense says: “We are delighted to join forces with Snozone in this charity partnership.

“We look forward to supporting the Snozone sites in both Milton Keynes and Castleford in their efforts to raise funds for our projects and services in the next two years.

“Our dedicated team will work closely with Snozone to ensure the partnership is successful for all concerned.”

> Time: 11am – 6pm, Saturday 17th May.

Price: £40 for 7 hour slope pass. All riders must meet Snozone’s minimum standard - ability to link turns, control speed and use a poma lift.
