Harris Booth, who freestyles at Midlothian Snowsports Centre two to three times a week, took to the slopes of Midlothian Snowsports Centre at Hillend to help launch Disney XD’s Next X.

Harris has been chosen for the brand new season of a pan-european Disney XD production as a new star of action sports.

Councillor Peter Boyes, Midlothian Council elected member with responsibility for Midlothian Snowsports Centre, said: “It’s great to see the next generation of freestylers like Harris Booth get the most out of this top class facility.”

Some of the world’s most promising young skiing and snowboarding talent will compete for the chance to perform alongside the world’s best at ESPN’s prestigious Winter X Games Europe, in the six-part series on Disney XD.

Harris, who will represent the UK, began skiing at the age of four and by 11, he had already set his heart on becoming a freestyle skier.
