With Storm Larissa continuing to cause chaos in the UK, Red Bull athlete and British freeskier Paddy Graham returned to his hometown to make the Steel City his playground for the day.

Flying over from Innsbruck, Austria, Paddy took to the streets of Sheffield to showcase his skills.

“SHEFFIELD – the city that introduced me to skiing which changed my life! I never thought I’d have the chance to ski again in my hometown but when my brother sent me a video of the 30cm of snow in his garden yesterday morning I knew it was time!” wrote Paddy on his social channels.

“Fun fact: I never did a backflip at the artificial ski slope when I was a kid so this is my first one!”

No stranger to making the most of snowy conditions in the UK, Paddy was part of the filming when Olympic Bronze medallist Billy Morgan braved the ‘Beast from the East‘ back in 2018. Check it out:
