As Team GB Park & Pipe Head Coach & Manager,

he’s an influential man when it comes to the elite training of our British Freeski athletes.

He’s also no stranger to dry slopes, as a mogul skier learning on Dendix

or to the Club, having attended many events here.

We are looking forward to welcoming back Pat & really urge you to  head to the slope for 2pm

to make the most of his amazing coaching ability!

So back to Will Feneley

Will began learning to Ski at NSC when he was 6, following a family ski holiday.

He started in Junior Club & progressed to dry slope Racing & Freestyle,

then onto snow Alpine racing training with BSA in Europe, 

as well as training in Slopestyle & Half Pipe.

In 2016, Will was the Big Air Winner at Farmers Jam!

Will was selected by Snowsports England for the U16 Alpine Development Team,

Park & Pipe National Academy & Moguls National Academy.

Focusing on Moguls, Will was selected as full Senior Team Moguls skier by BSS

& now trains around the world.

He is aiming to represent GB in the 2022 Olympics in Beijing. 

We are extremely pleased to see Will back at the Club, especially as he’s only back in the UK for a short break!

Will be also be on the slope, flying down those moguls & giving you guys some Top Tips.

An afternoon not to be missed!  

Off the slope, we have loads planned to keep you entertained,

with our late 60’s hippy themed event, giving a nod to the 50th year.

At 3pm, Gary Graceland is on stage,

closely followed by Kitty Collins at 4pm.

Grab a burger & take a trip around the stalls

& if you are feeling competitive, have a race through the bouncy castle assault course!

Winner buys the crepes 😉  

Head upstairs to the 50th Photo Booth

& grab a bargain from the ‘New to You’ stalls in the IP room.

If you have any ski/board kit you would like to sell, check out further info

Fancy a try on the slopes?

We have Ski & Snowboard Tasters during the afternoon.

Don’t forget your long sleeves, long trousers & bring gloves –

you can try your luck & just turn up or book in advance to guarantee your place.

There will also be some tubing spaces available on the day.

The Summer Fete finishes at 5pm, but you can stay to watch the Ski X Board X competition on the main slope.

That’s Saturday sorted 😉
