The future is bright for British Parsnowsport. Our athletes, coaches and leadership are incredible assets to the organisation and are the driving force behind our success as a (relatively!) new entry to international elite snowsport.
The 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi saw British Paralympians Kelly Gallagher MBE and Guide Charlotte Evans MBE secure our first ever Winter Gold medal in Super G, fellow Paralympians Jade Etherington (now retired) and Caroline Powell secured the title of ‘most decorated British winter athlete’ scooping a total of 3 silvers and a bronze whilst Great Britain’s youngest ever Paralympian Millie Knight - just 15 at the time - took 5th place in her first ever games.
Since 2014 Knight secured GB’s first ever Crystal Globe in 2015 adding another in 2016 whilst fellow teammate Menna Fitzpatrick secured the overall World Cup title. Ben Moore has been leading the way amongst Britain’s para-snowboarders also securing the World Cup title in 2015 and producing consistent top 5 finishes ever since.
We are exceptionally lucky to have a number of key supporters who have invested in British Parsnowsport and provided invaluable support to our athletes, Disability Snowsport UK has supported British Parasnowsport from its first beginnings and in recent years we have won the backing of UK Sport and The National Lottery who provided significant investment in our sport based on the success of our athletes and the strength of the programme that has driven our shared achievements.
British Parasnowsport is now looking to develop the sport creating a productive and robust pathway from grassroots to elite and delivering a strategy that sees our role as National Governing Body go from strength to strength.
We are always open to developing new partnerships to support us and share our medal success so if you are interested in discussing opportunities for engagement please get in touch.
