Tyler Harding is the 11 year old freestyle ski superstar who just seems unstoppable! Over the last month he has won most competitions in his age category and also qualified 2nd overall in the British slopestyle championships behind his Salomon team mate Woodsy. Tyler was one of the first ever kids to attend the Grom camps 3 years ago and he is that good now he even invents his own tricks!

Ski experience: I have been skiing since I was 4 years old, I started learning freestyle at Halifax Ski centre by copying young snowboarder Jamie Nichols, adapting the tricks for skis. I went to Bulgaria for my first ever snow holiday, then Andorra and then i did my first Brits in Switzerland this year and came home with 2 golds and one silver medal.
Training: I train at Castleford Snozone, Manchester Chill factore, Rossendale and Halifax Ski Centre. Coached by Pat Sharples (the best), Woodsie and the rest of the Salomon team, I love shredding with my buddies!
