Lessons and Race training this year.
Lessons- These will run and cater to all different levels of people looking to improve their skills. Four weeks of lessons will be available in a package, across Novemeber on Wednesdays 5-6pm (commencing 01/11/23) and Tuesday's 7:30-8:30pm (commencing 07/11/23). There will also be more lessons available in December, on Tuesday's and (fingers crosses) a day or two of intensive full day skiing at a slope.
Race Training- This will be TBC and anyone is welcome to join. You do not need to have previous racing experience. It is really fun to try out and it will enable to you come to competitions such as BUDS which you don't want to miss. As a bonus, we are hoping to attend a few sessions at Hillend ski slope in Edinburgh in preparation for BUDS and SUDS.
02/10/23 Race Training at Polmont 7:30-9pm
24/10/23 & 31/10/23 Racinig Training at Firpark 5:45-7:45pm
This year there will be a cost towards lessons and training due to the increase in prices, the prices are cheaper and more accessible for us as students due to our group bookings comapred to private lessons outwith our group.
An extra bonus is that our club does not interfere with BUCS Wednesdays so you can join even if you have joined another club and you will not be missing out on anything. You also do not need to purchase the sports facility membership which saves you costs while still being able to join a club
Every year we hit the slopes of Hillend, racing and freestyling for both ski and board. We represent our team at the largest Snowsports event in Britain and have a great time whilst doing so! This includes a day of racing followed by some crazzy socials involving many other big Universities from across the UK. This is great to get involved in even if you have never done any competitive snow sports before, there is no pressure and everyone has the best time!
This year we have a CRAZY social calendar planned with a social every fortnight. There will be themes, there will be ski shots, and you will be snowballing your way to Fubar's dance floors!
Be sure to follow us on Facebook for any upcoming SUSSy antics! Alternatively, you may follow us on Instagram where we post regular updates and lots of fun content on our stories (@Stiruni_snowsports).
The Ski Trip
Arguably the most important event of the year, the infamous uni ski trip is the highlight of many students' time at university and we wholeheartedly agree with this! You do not have to be a member of Snowsports to attend our annual ski trip and anyone is able to come however, the benefit of becoming a member is that you will get a chance to meet many of the people going beforehand and form friendships prior to the trip. You will also be able to attend all of our sessions to help you prepare so we highly recommend signing up if you are keen to make the most of it! Again all info and updates regarding the trip will be posted online so keep an eye on the Instagram and Facebook so you don't miss out on a space. This is always a SELL OUT EVENT, rapid and we want as many peeople to enjoy the Alpes with us.
This Year we are going to Val Thorens, 06/01/24 - 13/01/24
