English Alpine Championships 2020 Dates Released!

Following a record year for the English Alpine Championships, Snowsport England is delighted to announce that it will extend its contract for the championships with Bormio Ski for another three years from 2020 until 2022.

In February hundreds of competitors and their families enjoyed an action-packed week of skiing in Bormio, Italy for the 23rd English Alpine Championships – the biggest ever event in the competition’s history.


Gerald Harrison - sadly missed and never forgotten

It is with sadness that we report the passing of Gerald Harrison. Gerald was a skier, a Snowsport England coach and tutor, a respected BBC producer and director, and perhaps most important of all, a true gentleman.

Over the years, Gerald worked with many clubs and ski centres; his endless optimism, calm nature and good cheer meant that, even at the end of the rainiest day, his skiers had improved and left the slopes with a smile on their face.

Gerald worked with a number of clubs including Kendal and was a regular coach on Oxfordshire Ski Club’s ‘Squalor Tours’.

English Alpine Championships Biggest Yet

Hundreds of competitors and their families enjoyed another action-packed week of skiing in Bormio, Italy where they gathered last week for the 23rd English Alpine Championships.  

Over 430 competitors took part, with skiers ranging from under-10s to senior athletes from England, Scotland and Wales.


English Alpine Champs 2019 - Day 5

The sound of crisp, early-morning snow under booted foot was a fitting soundtrack as the English Alpine Championships reached its crunch on the fifth day of racing in Bormio. Stella Alpina has been a forest of humanity in recent days and that only continued with slalom for the U14s and U16s, final races offering the chance to make a lasting impression.

English Alpine Champs 2019 - Day 4

Every single skier at this year’s English Alpine Championships was on piste thanks to a monumental effort from all involved in Bormio. There wasn’t a piece of powder left unturned across Stelvio and Stella Alpina - whether you were Nicole Ritchie in her ninth FIS season or an under-10 transfixed by sights and sounds. And once again the weather didn’t let anyone down, the week’s first clouds flitting into the skyline but failing to at any stage obscure a sublime scene. Appropriately, it was the best day of the Championships so far for Brits in FIS racing.


English Alpine Champs 2019 - Day 3

Roles were reversed on day three in Bormio as senior racers took on Stelvio and ski lifts full of smiles climbed onto Stella Alpina in the shape of the U10s and U12s. Pure pace was also on the agenda as competition sponsors Vitalini ran a popular speed test on Stelvio, assessing the ability of youngsters to tuck and fly down the slope. Course conditions remained exceptional – a slight drop in temperature over the last 24 hours making for sumptuous skiing and a challenging setting on Stelvio testing the best.
