Join snowboarding sensation Katie Ormerod at Castleford Snozone – 18th December!

As one of the UK’s leading renewable energy providers, we’re passionate about doing all we can to help tackle climate change. That’s why we’re excited to have teamed up with the talented young snowboarder – and future Olympic gold medal hopeful – Katie Ormerod for a very special event at Snozone in Castleford on 18th December 2017, from 5pm-9.30pm.

Katie has always been passionate about protecting the planet and we’re thrilled to introduce her as the newest member of the Solarplicity team. Together, we can beat climate change!

It’s a fact. Skiers and Snowboarders are experiencing climate change first hand. The earth’s rising temperature caused from greenhouse gas emissions is continuing to decrease snow fall, snow cover and snow depth. Alpine ski resorts could lose up to 70% of snow cover by the year 2100. That’s where we come in – with renewable energy producing little or no waste products… therefore having a minimal impact on the environment.

Katie Ormerod spent some of her time snowboarding at Castleford Snozone whilst growing up, working hard to reach the standard of snowboarder she is today. Now, as she builds towards the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, we’re lucky enough to have Katie joining us for a very special event – and you’re invited to come along!

Things will kick off on the slope, as Katie shows off her awesome snowboarding skills, followed by a FREE 1 hour snowboarding lesson, taken by Katie herself!

There are limited spaces available for this very special lesson – so don’t miss out. If you want to take part, call Snozone now, on 0333 003 0520!

Don’t fancy having a lesson but still want to snowboard? We’ll be giving away FREE SHARE THE SLOPE SLOTS, where Katie will be snowboarding on the slope with you! These slots are strictly limited – so book yours now calling the number above so you don’t miss out!

Not up for snowboarding? No problem. There will be lots of other fun activities to keep you busy throughout the evening. Then, at the end of the event, you’ll have the opportunity to hear Katie talk about climate change and participate in a Q&A session!

With future sports stars like Katie on board, we can all do something positive about tackling climate change. We hope you’re on board too!
