Skiing remains a popular pastime
As the skiing season gets into full swing, and tourists head to Europe for top-performing slopes, Ski Sunday, the popular BBC Sport television show, is to return to our screens for its 35th season. Hosted by Graham Bell and Ed Leigh, the six-part series will also feature Olympic skeleton gold medallist Amy Williams.
The programme will cover all the action and excitement from the men's and women's World Cup season as the sport of skiing continues to grow in popularity. It is a favourite pastime among Brits, with many heading off on trips to slopes around the world on a regular basis - of course after taking out adequate
sports travel insurance.
In the new series Amy will teach Ed and Graham how to fly down a bob track in St Moritz, the BBC reports, and also meet Elise Christie, the short-track speed skater hoping to win gold in Sochi. The first show will come from St Anton in Austria on January 13 at 17:00 GMT on BBC Two and BBC HD, with the last episode concluding at the FIS Alpine World Skiing Championships from Schladming in Austria from February 4 to 17.
