The sun may have been beaming down on them but that didn't stop youngsters across the county from donning their ski-wear for the start of this year's Norfolk Winter School Games.
Day one's action kicked off today at Norfolk Snowsports Club, in Trowse, with over 60 youngsters competing in the skiing from various School Sports Partnerships around the county.
North Norfolk SSP came out on top in the team relays with a close win over Norwich East SSP.
This year 2,500 young people will compete in the week's activities, which will run every day next week.
The games, which include a winter and summer event, is part of the national Sainsbury's School Games initiative.
