Huge air and dizzying spins in the stunning Norwegian Fjords – at the end of June!
With good snow well into summer and almost 24 hours of daylight, Norway has the best late season skiing in the Northern Hemisphere; it was the ideal destination for Team GB’s best freestyle skiers to train for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics!
If you like kickers and sunsets, then GB Park and Pipe’s very own Katie Summerhayes and James ‘Woodsy’ Woods have the ultimate secret spot. Where? Fonna Glacier Ski Resort in Norway. Thanks as ever to UK Sport, Delancey and the people of Norway! Special thanks to GB Park and Pipe head ski coach Pat Sharples for filming.
Katie Summerhayes and James ‘Woodsy’ Woods are two of Team GB’s most exciting park skiers and medal prospects. Together with GB freeski coach Pat Sharples, the pair headed to the beautiful Folgefonna Glacier ski resort in Norway for a late season training session. Having built a private kicker built to Woodsy’s exacting specifications, they proceeded to throw down with some absolutely dizzying spins.
