A NORTHALLERTON snowboarder has his sights set on future success after wowing crowds at a freestyle snow sports competition.

Nineteen-year-old Sam Turnbull is one of the sponsored riders at SNO!zone at Xscape in Castleford.

He picked up one of the top awards of the night after impressing judges at the Scottish leg of the Burton Hi5 series of freestyle snow sports events.

Sam picked up his second bronze medal win in the last month after also coming in third at the male British Indoor Slope Style Championships.

Sarah Porteus, SNO!zone brand and marketing manager, said: ‘“This was a fantastic event and our sponsored riders Will and Sam really shone.

“We strive to help all of our sponsored riders to develop, so it’s fantastic to see them doing so well in a prestigious competition like this.”
