Do you have a need for speed on the slopes? 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. This season The Ski Club is going to enter a team into the following amateur ski races...

City Ski Championships

January 20 – February 2

Courmayeur, Italy

Come and try ski racing at any level during one of the most vibrant and fun amateur ski race events in the Alps, the City Ski Championships. The event runs parallel with the Financial Times Alpine forum, where dinners and après ski sessions make it an excellent networking opportunity. Combined, these events make The Momentum Ski Festival, where keen skiers can experience a varied programme of high-quality ski racing, comedy, live music and entertainment in iconic surroundings. As the premier alpine event for business executives, it is a great opportunity to share a passion for snowsports with leading figures in the finance industry. Why not combine business with pleasure and meet us at the start gates?

Here's what to expect at the City Ski Championships

 

Amateur International Club Championship (AICC)

March 11-13

Flaine, France

In 2020 this annual championship will be hosted by The Ladies Ski Club and is open to both males and females. The club was set up in 1923 and since its inception, it has encouraged healthy rivalry and fuelled ambition in ski racing between female teams. Amateur racers are invited to compete in the Giant Slalom, Super-G and Parallel Slalom. It’s a chance to fully experience the world of racing with access to the Captain’s Briefing and welcome drinks plus Alpine and Gala dinners across the three-day event. The fun, friendly competition is the biggest of its kind, organised between the largest European Ski Clubs. Do you have the nerve to face the gates? Get in touch to enrol as a competitor.
