Sport England did not fund the British Ski and Snowboard Federation for development in 2004, 2005 or 2006 and there are no plans to provide any funding in 2007. Sport England has, however, funded Snowsport England (the English ski council) as follows:

2004-05: £40,000

2005-06: £40,000

2006-07: £30,000

Sport England currently has no plans to provide any funding to Snowsport England in 2007-08.
