Get into Ski Racing

If you want to test yourself against the clock and get involved in ski racing, the best starting point is to join a club.  Clubs throughout Wales offer ski race training on the artificial slopes and can help develop your ski racing skills.  They will also organise local races giving you an excellent opportunity to gain some experience before going on to more formally organised and structured races.

 

Whilst we have no snow in Wales where we can train and race on a regular basis, there are events that are run through the winter in the alps (including the Welsh Alpine Championships) where you can race as a British competitor.  If you are looking for a club to support and develop your skills racing in the alps Dragons Alpine (Ski Race Club) are affiliated to Snowsport Wales and provide a school holiday training programme for developing athletes.

 

Schools Ski Racing

The Welsh Schools Skiing Series provides an excellent opportunity for young children to get involved with ski racing through their local slope.  Our schools events for 2016 have now been completed & keep a look out for our 2017 to be published soon.

The events are designed for both individuals and school teams.
