Ski at Home. Protect UK Slopes. Save the Scene.
Coronavirus restrictions hit the UK’s ski slopes hard. Having to shut down during the peak ski season was devastating for many of these small, community-run businesses. When they reopened at the end of March, we set out on our mission to get Brits back on bristles (or inside the fridge).
In April and May, we ran our Instagram video & photo contest with a huge prize bundle worth £1000 up for grabs. We asked our community of British skiers to get down to support their local slope and share it on Instagram using the hashtag #SkiAtHomeUK.
On Tuesday the 8th of June we closed the competition. And after sorting through over 150 entries, it is safe to say that the standard of grassroots talent up and down the UK is next level! For an island with very little "real skiing", we have one of the strongest ski scenes and are blessed with the most artificial ski facilities in the world.
Without further ado, let's find out who the winners of the #SkiAtHomeUK contest are, shall we.
