Sunny Skies in Bormio on Day Two of English Alpine Champs

Day two of the English Alpine Ski Championships was blessed with clear blue skis and good snow conditions as the racers tackled a FIS Slalom and the Under 12 & Under 10s raced three runs of a Giant Slalom.

Action kicks off at English Alpine Championships 2016 in Bormio

The English Alpine Ski Championships kicked off in style on Valentine’s Day in Bormio, with a record number of entries and some impressive skiing in the FIS National Junior Slalom and Under 16 & Under 14 Giant Slalom. 

 

409 athletes, the most ever entries at an English Alpine Championships, descended on Bormio yesterday for the opening parade, and today began racing under cloudy skies with light snow falling for most of the day.

Ryding claims 13th in Santa Caterina Slalom World Cup

Delancey British Alpine Team athlete Dave Ryding has secured another world class performance with a 13th place in today’s Slalom World Cup in Santa Caterina, Italy.

Following his 24th place finish in Madonna di Campiglio before Christmas and his best ever World Cup result, 12th in Val d’Isere in mid-December, this second top 15 World Cup finish of the season firmly cements Ryding as a force to reckoned with on the circuit.

Get Involved! Call for course setters, referees, fore-runners

Once again we are trying to get ahead of the game by asking for nominations, proposals or volunteers before we actually arrive in resort, to allow us to plan the distribution of roles more effectively. This worked well last time, so we would like to run the same scheme again.

Read the advert below for more details, email alpinechamps@snowsportengland.org.uk with applications or questions.

Team Update

The organising Team for Bormio 2016 is now complete, but if you would like to get some experience of what it is like to help out at the Championships, or just get a flavour of how to make the transition from officiating in the UK to races in the Alps, please do get in touch with us and we'll be happy to chat about it. We hope to organise at least one informal session to give people an overview of what it's all about, so keep an eye on the web site for more details about this nearer the time.
