Two high-flying local yougsters have taken part in the British Freestyle Skiing Championships last week in Tignes, France.

The brothers competed in the Slope Style invent which involes skiing down a course which consists of a series of huge jumps and rail and box features.

The event had its Winter Olympics debut in Sochi this year.

It was a mixed bag of results for the boys as Angus, who was on track for a podium, fell on his final run and did not place.

Finlay finished in silver position in his age category after two amazing runs.

Both boys have thanked Muehlhan Surface Protection LTD and Aberdeenshire Sports Council for supporting them over this year.
