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.

Sheffield Ski Village changed my life when I was at a very low point. I learnt to snowboard there, developed my love of the sport, met so many fantastic people, some of who are lifelong friends and one who is now my husband, and had so many great times. I watched and aspired to those Olympic snowboarders and skiers who have just done us proud in Sochi. It wasn't just a sports centre, it was a way of life for many including myself. And I hoped that one day I would take my kids there too. Well fingers crossed by the time our baby's due the Snowsport Centre will be up and running, or at lesat in the process of being developed. Us and generations to come need facilities like this!!!
