THERE’S not much snow around Sheffield at this time of the year.

But one Sheffield lad will be able to find the white stuff every day - thanks to a unique sponsorship deal with SNO!zone Castleford.

Winter Olympic hopeful Tom Farrow, aged 23, from Hillsborough, who has been snowboarding for 10 years, received sponsorship after impressing SNO!zone bosses with his success on the slopes in the UK and beyond.

He will now have access to real snow to train on throughout the year at the indoor slope.

The sponsorship followed a successful 2011 for Tom who was selected for the British Snowboarding Team.

Tom said: “It’s great that SNO!zone are sponsoring me, it means that whenever I’m in the UK I’ll still be able to train on real snow.”
