About Tom…

I am a 20 year old freestyle skier from Bracknell, studying Entrepreneurship and Management at University. Skiing has been a passion of mine from a very young age whether that be competitions or general cruising around a piste, there is no better feeling!

How Tom got into Snowsports…

My first experience of skiing was at the age of 3, at a resort in Boston called ‘Cranmore’ (USA). Even at such a young age, I didn’t want to leave the slopes. The adrenaline that comes with the sport has kept me hooked ever since.

My first time over freestyle features was 4 years later where I just gave it a try at a resort with a park. It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! 13 years later and I’m still enjoying it more than ever.
My biggest influence skiing has been athlete Simon Dumont, watching him at the X-games whilst growing up was eye opening and was a real catalyst in my development.

Tom’s time at The Snow Centre…
I have been incredibly fortunate to have been able to utilise the facilities available at The Snow Centre for multiple years now. The friendly and interactive coaches, great Park-Plans and family environment make The Snow Centre the best facility in the UK to train at. The community of riders on Thursday and Friday evenings make landing new tricks effortless as everyone is improving together whether you know them or not. This is what makes the evenings fun and enjoyable whether you’re a seasoned veteran or just learning the ropes of the sport.

Favourite trick…
It’s a tough one but I’ve got to go with a switch 540 double japan grab on the jumps and a super-fed on the rails.

Top tip…
Having gone through various learning phases at The Snow Centre, the most important thing is to have fun. If you’re having fun, progression will follow. Furthermore, having confidence in yourself is another. As with most barriers to progression, it’s a mental block, having the ability to overcome this will definitely propel you forward.
