The SNO!zone Snow-Camp Rally in association with SCUK is back – bigger and better than ever! It’s a totally unique skiing and snowboarding fundraising event, where teams of up to 5 people complete an epic 3-day road-trip in a race to ride as many of Britain’s participating dry and indoor slopes as possible. Access to the slopes is free for teams. Each team member has a target of £250 to fundraise for Snow-Camp. The Rally is taking place 19th – 21st November 2010 http://www.snow-camp.co.uk/snowcamprally.

Ed Leigh, one of Snow-Camp’s Patrons says “The SNO!zone Snow-Camp Rally is the closest you’ll ever get to the Cannonball run whilst riding all Britain’s best artificial slopes. Plus you can say it’s all for charity, magic! Baggsy be Burt Reynolds.”
