Pat Sharples, Team GB Head Coach for Park & Pipe, and homegrown talent Will Feneley, from Fakenham, opened the “end of summer fete” with dynamic slope displays.

Will, a full time athlete for the British Freestyle Moguls Squad, trained with the club from the age of six, before he was scouted to represent Britain on the international stage.

Deborah Anstee, Club Manager said: “It’s great timing for us that Will is back in the UK for a short break from his training as a full time moguls athlete and that he can come back to the Club to inspire other skiers.”

Founded on January 18, 1968, by a group of teenage skiers fresh from a Norfolk Youth Service holiday course, the non-for-profit club continued to grow until moving to its current Trowse base 1986.
