Ski & Snowboard Cross

Snowsport England along with our Home Nations partners have combined forces to build the pathway in ski and snowboard cross and now getting involved in these exciting disciplines is easier than ever.

British Ski & Snowboard, Snowsport Scotland, Snowsport England and Snowsport Wales run the annual GBX selection and competition series in the UK.

During the summer of 2017, there was six ‘GBX National Trials’ running at UK slopes and ski centres between April and October.  Athletes were selected using the GBX Skills Mission* and successful athletes have been invited to join either the Home Nations squad or the The National Academy squad. During the Spring/Summer 2018, a series of trials for GBX (ski and snowboard cross) will take place throughout the UK again, dates to be confirmed.

The Home Nations GBX squad will be expected to focus on training primarily in the UK and utilizing domestic opportunities to progress in the sport, however there will be opportunities for on snow programs for those excelling.

The GBX programs offer both part time and full time programs), consisting of on snow coaching, competition coaching, fitness support, nutritional support, and a full FIS / European Cup competition program.
