Snowsport For Sheffield

Snowsport For Sheffield are a working group of professional individuals; with a passion to see the resurgence of Sheffield as the innovating and leading centre for snowsport in the UK.

Our Key Objectives Are:
* Re-establish Sheffield as the Snowsport Centre for the UK.
* Create a platform for the next generation of Olympic hopefuls by encouraging talent and making snowsport accessible to all.
* Establish the UK's first multi-sport freestyle training facility.
* Cement Sheffield's place as the 'City of Sport', by working in partnership with existing facilities to create a Centre of Excellence.
* Provide a sustainable positive effect on the local community and economy.

We believe given our recent success at the Sochi Games, and the legacy the Ski Village has in the creation of many of our top flight athletes that Sheffield deserves a new home for winter sports.

If you would like to see Sheffield re-established as the Snowsport Centre for the UK, providing open access for all, and provide a sustainable positive effect on the local community, then please sign our petition.


  • Jon Beynon This is a chance to bring one of the original venues of snow sports in the UK back to life. It has helped many riders progress in the past and now is a great time to reinvest in the facility so soon after Sochi. Renewed facilities here would be a fantastic legacy after the 2014 games and an investment in the future of the sports and tomorrows athletes...whatever the level.

  • craig guest Kept me off the streets and gave me the chance to see some amazing places and meet some amazing people. The ski industry is worth millions, why not introduce our youngsters to jobs and the chance to excel in sport?!

  • Steve Walton I was lucky enough to learn to ski at SSV aged 3 and then teach & coach there later in life before moving out to the alps to work with ski brands. Bringing any kind of facility to teach the next geration on Woodsys, Machons, Longleys and Summerhayes' back to sheffield is the best idea I have seen in ages. And bonus, you already have a great knowledge base of young coaches based in sheffield who have experience at the top level of the sport representing the country. Because of this, even after SSV burnt down, the home of UK snowsports never changed from being Sheffield.
