Finbar‘s Edit to Launch Season Opener

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements

Sixth year pupil Finbar Doig has been chosen to produce a video for the British Freeride opening
event in Edinburgh on 3rd November.

British Freeride are a national snow sports organisation supporting and developing extreme skiers
to compete and safely explore mountains beyond the pistes. The opening event is an annual get
together of like minded people encouraging them to get ready for the new ski season.
This summer Finbar took part in a junior Freeride camp in Folgefonna glacier in Norway. Some of
the world’s best Freeride competitors were on hand to coach young skiers from across Europe.
Finbar was presented with a set of top of the range Atomic skis in recognition of his enthusiasm
and determination.

“It was awesome getting to ski and learning from some of my heroes, they encouraged me to try a
double backflip in the water. I practised the landing until I was confident enough to try it on the
snow which I did and I landed it.”

Last season Finbar won two of the Scottish Freedom series events and was placed second
overall in the series. He also gained valuable experience in Verbier Switzerland in the Freeride
Junior World Tour .
