Snow-Camp North West

Our First Tracks, Graduate and Excel Programmes are available in the North West, which take place at the Chill Factore in Manchester. Our programmes are generously supported by AJ Bell.

Our Programme Journey

Our programmes run from July-June each year. All young people must be aged 13-21 and must start at the beginning on First Tracks with no prior snowsports experience.

Programme Journey

First Tracks Programme


Graduate Programme

This programme offers young people the opportunity to further develop their snowsports skills over 6 weekends. Young people attend life-skills sessions focusing on vocational opportunities with presentations from industry representatives. Young people gain an ASDAN certificate in Sports and Fitness and they also continue through the Snowsport England Snowlife Award system started on the First Tracks Programme.

The next programme will be running throughout October and November 2019.

Excel Programme

When a young person reaches the Excel Programme they are motivated and ready to pursue a career in the snowsports industry. Over 10 weeks young people, aged 16-21, train to become qualified Snowsport England Level 1 ski or snowboarding instructors. They also experience the mountains for the first time on our annual residential.

The next programme will take place throughout February, March and April 2020.
