Snowsport England’s Liability Insurance
We have received some recent queries about our liability insurance cover.
In order to clarify the situation, we can confirm that:
UK Snowsports (UKSS) has gone global, with RAW Snowsports, headed up by Mike Barker, now delivering UKSS instructor courses in Dubai.
Snowsport England Tutor Mike Barker, who is now based in Dubai, was asked to run UKSS ski instructor training courses at the giant indoor ski centre, Ski Dubai.
The first courses are already well subscribed, with the best sign ups being on the UKSS Foundation Course aimed at 14-16 years old. This is the same course as a standard Foundation Course, but aimed at a younger market.
British Ski and Snowboard, the National Governing Body for elite British snowsports, are delighted to announce the appointment of Dan Hunt as Performance Director.
