Learning new tricks and pushing yourself mentally, against the best in the world, in the extreme environment of snowsport gives you a feeling like no other I have found. For me free skiing is the best sport in the world.


Peter Speight
on Freeskiing

Peter Speight is a member of Team GB and competes on the world circuit in half pipe and freestyle skiing. His journey started aged 4 years old when Peter was introduced to skiing by his mum and dad. He has been competing in half pipe since 2011 which is his main passion and the discipline he loves to push.

As well as half pipe Peter loves big jumps and exploring the back country and enjoying the freedom of the great outdoors. Freeskiing is rewarding to Peter because of the huge variety of ways in which you can perform, and the opportunity to bring his own style. He has not had it all his own way and in 2014 he snapped his ACL ligament in his knee requiring surgery and months of rehab.

Peter is a great BAMbassador pushing his personal boundaries and skills within elite sport and competition. He has overcome injury and balances the difficult priorities of competing and earning a crust.
