Olympic hopefuls, the England Mogul Ski Team, flew to Geneva with Jet2.com and are currently in the Alps for eight days intensive training.
The team, with an average age of just 15, are hotly tipped to win medals at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and have been dubbed 'Generation 2010' athletes by the British Olympic Association. The GB Team expect a good medal haul in Vancouver & British Moguls champions were amongst those jetting to the Alps.
Mogul Skiing is the most spectacular of all the skiing styles, with airborne gymnastics, such as back flips and somersaults all taking place between skiing over small mounds or 'Moguls' as the experts call them!
Why not try some tricks in the snow yourself?
