The Ski Club Race Team
This season the Ski Club is inviting you to experience the thrill of ski racing and be part of our Race Team. Racing is one of the most exciting snowsports activities, one which requires ultimate control of speed and line. If you are a bit of a speed demon and fancy taking your skiing to the next level, you can join us and share a racing experience with like-minded skiers.
Our ski race team is open to anyone who can ski a black run under control, and we would advise a Ski Club rating of purple for entrants. The Ski Club is going to enter a team into the following amateur ski races this winter 2019-20…
Amateur International Club Championship (AICC) // March 11th – 13th // Flaine, France
City Ski Championships // January 30th – February 2nd // Courmayeur, Italy
