If your ears are fans of podcasts then it might be time to give them some snow ones to listen to.
We have subscribed to a few ski and snowboard podcasts to make sure there is always a bit of winter in our feed.
There is a wide range of Ski and Snowboarding pods hanging around in the podcast corner of the internet. From Ski instructor specific podcast to ones that focus only on the UK dry slope scene.
Here are a few of our recommendations.
Ski The Kingdom
This pod is all about the UK Snowsports scene with Jack Tompkins. Sadly they stop producing episodes about a year ago. But that doesn’t mean that they are not worth listening to. There is some great insight into the grass root level of our sport in the UK. There are interviews with UK athletes, info on indoor and dry slopes and some handy guides on making a career in the snowsports industry.
