What’s the reality of life for a top skier or snowboarder?

April 22, 2015

What’s the reality of life for a top skier or snowboarder? How does it feel to constantly chase progression and push yourself at the top level of the sport? And how difficult is it to spend your life on the road, with only dreams of future glory to keep you motivated? 


To answer these questions, and to give the National Lottery playing public an insight into how their cash is helping the team, the GB Park and Pipe Team are launching #ProjectPY2018 – an ongoing film series offering an exclusive behind-the-scenes insight into the reality of life as a top snowsport athlete in the lead up the next Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang in 2018.

Narrated by Olympic commentator and BBC TV Presenter Tim Warwood, over the coming years #ProjectPY2018 will bring viewers closer to the athletes than ever before. We’ll follow them through the high and lows, from contest wins and new tricks, to missed flights and injuries.

This week the series follows Katie Summerhayes, Aimee Fuller and Olympic bronze medalist Jenny Jones at the most progressive women’s event ever: the Suzuki Nine Queens.
