The Orange AIM Series Schools Tour will educate and inspire a further 3,000 school pupils over the next two weeks to keep active with snowsports.

British Champion Snowboarders and Freestyle Skiers will hit the road on the 13th June to visit 10 schools across the UK offering the pupils free beginner lessons at each of the Orange AIM Series events through August to October.

The schools tour spends a day at each school, presenting the various elements and disciplines of snowboarding and freestyle skiing, as well as talking about mountain safety, equipment, training and career opportunities.

Before getting the chance to check out the equipment themselves and get their hands on stickers, lanyards and posters, the students are treated to a trampoline display of more difficult tricks by the pros.
