Want to nail freeskiing? Freerunning may be just the solution for the GB Freeski team. Luckily Red Bull freerunner Ryan Doyle was on hand to give GB freeskiers, including our very own Katie Summerhayes, a sometimes literal crash course. Handplants, flips and the occasional bruise are guaranteed. Check out the video below to find out if spins and tricks on the ground work as well in the snow...

Want to give freerunning a go yourself? The GB Freeski team were practising at the Airborn Academy in Liverpool – Ryan is one of the founders there. Fancy a lesson? The athletes then went on for training at the Xscape Yorkshire indoor snozone.

Now see for yourself what happens when freerunning meets freeskiing.
