The Snowboard Asylum, Castlefield, Manchester

  • Danny Willoughby

    Snowboarding Expert


    Danny earned his turns on Halifax’s dendex, before becoming a Castleford regular when we went to university. His first season in Alp D’Huez led to a further three years there, and before he knew it he was chasing winters around the world including seasons in Whistler, Canada, Queenstown, New Zealand and Mt. Buller, Australia.

    A BASI qualified instructor and freestyle coach, Danny loves the park, but come a powder day the whole mountain is his playground.

    Favourite Place/Resort:
    Whistler, Canada. "Whistler has to be my favourite for its unrivalled terrain and parks. I met a bear there once – luckily it was dozy as it had just come out of hibernation. It fell over and rolled away so thankfully it was nothing to worry about!"
