On Wednesday 18th April the BUCS Alpine Championships will roll in to Stoke on Trent Ski Centre, and it's going to be sunny!
The competition is taking a break from the snow this year but students can still gain BUCS points here in the UK by taking part. Racers can enter slalom and dual competitions and freestylers are invited to enter the Big Air and Rail Jams sessions.
For competitors and anyone coming along to support their uni, there's a cafe with food and drinks plus a supermarket nearby to keep you stocked up through the day. For anybody hiring equipment, there are limited supplies of skis and snowboards, so you should make sure you arrive early to guarantee you get the right equipment.
The accepted entry list will be published on the BUCS website and any DNS or withdrawals will occur a £10 fine. Substitutions are not allowed.
The Line-S team will be at the event so keep your eyes peeled for us and come and have a chat!
