Racing

About

The centre hosts a hugely successful ski racing club.
Gloucester Ski Club has racers of all ages who compete all over the country on dry slopes and on snow. The club has a long history of producing ski racing champions and members of British Teams, but caters for all standard of racers.

Club training

Gloucester Ski Club trains on Thursday and Sunday evenings, when the race slope is dedicated solely for race training. There are also training camps around the Easter, May, summer and October school holidays.

Western Counties Ski Club are another race club that meet regularly on a Monday night, where members get great coaching for slalom skiing.

Both clubs race at the Gloucester based Regional Summer Race league, with many of our skiers going on to race at National and International races on dry slope, and then progressing to race on snow and represent their Home Nation and Great Britain.

Gloucester Ski Club doesn’t run any snow training or instructor training, but we use their partners to feed skiers into their programmes. Snow training is primarily based around Dragons Alpine, or one of the many Ski Race Academies programmes based in the Alps.

Membership is open to all, with the clubs enjoying a fun family atmosphere. The emphasis is on everyone being able to ski and race at their own level, but most importantly of all, to enjoy it.

Coaching Teams
