Get Competitive

So you have caught the snowsports bug?

Joining your local ski club at a dry or indoor slope is probably your best starting point, and if you like it you can get involved in race training and club events, and then when you are ready enter some local or even national races.

You know you love it and want to do more? You may have seen ski racing on the TV or snowboarding on the web and would love to do what they do?

Well if you have got the appetite, there is nothing stopping you taking your skiing or snowboarding to the next level and getting involved in the competitive side of the sport. You never know, you could be the next British Olympic superstar!

Find out how you can get involved on the Go Ski Go Board website!

 

Get Competitive

Snowsport England and the Snowsport England regions run a number of events through the spring, summer and autumn so you can get racing without having to head to the mountains!

 

Regional Races: These are a great way to get started in the sport of alpine racing. These are slalom races with occasional dual slaloms and they are suited to all ages! If you want to start your career, make some new friends or get back into racing then find your region here https://snowsportengland.org.uk/regions and look for what races are going on in your area. If you aren’t already a member of a club then joining a club is a great way to get moving in alpine racing. You can find a list of clubs here https://snowsportengland.org.uk/find_club

Club Nationals: Club nationals act as the gateway to alpine ski racing. Organised by volunteer-run clubs, they're incredibly fun days of ski racing, giving young and old skiers the chance to experience ski racing for the first or hundred and first time. If you enjoy taking part in the club national races, then the next step would be to enter the regional races and the GBR Series.

GBR Series:  A great stepping stone for ski racers looking to progress their skills is through the nationwide GBR Series. Each year, the GBR Series involves 10 ski races - 5 taking place on dry slopes and 5 taking place at indoor snowdomes. This gives young performers the chance to hone their skills on both surfaces, whilst racing alongside some of the best ski racers in the UK.

The series is partnered with the British Ski Academy and involves Snowsport England, Snowsport Wales and Snowsport Scotland, and if you'd like to follow the race series and find out more information, visit the Facebook page here.

English Alpine Championships: The English Alpine Champs is the pinnacle event on the UK alpine ski racing calendar, with over 400 competitors battling it out in Slalom, Giant Slalom and  Super Giant Slalom in the beautiful Italian resort of Bormio.

To compete in Club Nationals and the GBR Series you need to be registered as a competitor with your Home Nation.
