 TIM GARDNER

I've skied on family holidays since I was 3 years old, but only done freestyle on and off for about 2 and a half years.

I've skied all over with my family but in England its the Chill Factore once a week for me. Sometimes Cas but I don't do dryslope cause carpet skiing ain't nice to me :P

I've only entered 3 comps, and the only result I know is I came 19th at the Brits Snow Tour at Castleford which I'm kinda proud of seeing as I was unconscious halfway through my second run.

Skiing is the only thing that I've done where I can have as much fun falling on my face as I do
when I land. It's just really chilled and you don't have to take yourself seriously.

 EDUCATION?

I'm a bit of a geek and just got 3 A*s in Maths, Biolgy an Chemistry in my A-levels. I'm off to Manchester Uni in September to study Optometry and plan to take over my dad at the Specsavers store in Wigan with my sister.

 FAVOURITE SKIER? 

Tom Wallisch because his landings are so clean, mine are really sketchy and most the time i end up on the floor :P

 INFLUENCERS IN YOUR SKIING? 

Pat and Woodsy who have helped me so much with my skiing from the start and really got me into it.

 FAVOURITE ACTOR? 

Jim Carey cause he's just so funny

 LAST WORDS? 

Just a big thanks to Pat and Woodsy for all their help over the years and also to my mates Phil, Matt, Liam and Riad who I ski with regularly at Chill who help me have a laugh and learn new stuff :)
