19–20 Oct 2024 146 days to go! #SnowWeek Tickets

Will Hughes

I am a cross-country skier, competing as part of the British Performance Pathway affiliated with GB Snowsport. Last season, I lived in Lillehammer where I was a full-time athlete competing in the Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish junior cups. I started skiing in the UK when I was 14 as I was exposed to the sport from a young age being half Norwegian. At age 16 I was selected for the British Nordic Development Squad and last year I was chosen to be on ‘Project Lillehammer’. Being the only male athlete in the M19/20 age category in the British Performance Pathway and coming from London where there is no snow also motivates me to overcome the odds of competing in the hardest endurance sport in the world. I look forward to racing in Lillehammer this season as well as balancing university which I start this September at Newcastle.
