A YOUNG skier has taken the internet by storm after his father posted a video of him performing tricks in the snow in Tidcombe over the festive period.

James Richardson from Great Bedwyn was filmed by friend Matt Snell performing a flip off of jumps carved out in the powdery snow on a hill above Oxenwood and Tidcombe on Wednesday.

The clip has since had several thousands of views on twitter.
