Learning to ski could become more of a reality for kids in Gloucestershire.

Sport England have awarded the Ski and Snowboard centre in Gloucester a grant to help fund training programs and teach excellence and maybe even find Olympic champions of the future!

It is one of ten centres chosen for the scheme, to coincide with the Winter Olympics, which are about to start.
