London Schools Ski Race

  Updated 13th Mar

A regular fixture now for London schools, the London Schools Ski Race will be held this year on Sunday 12 June.

The morning is dedicated to Primary Schools (Years 2-6), with medals for podium positions and a cup for the winner of the Dual Slalom. In the afternoon, the Secondary Schools (Years 7-13) compete for podium medals, a cup for the Girls Dual Slalom and a cup for the Boys Dual Slalom. We are expecting entries to exceed last year's record.

As last year, there will be training sessions leading up to the race, on Saturdays 30 April, 7, 14, 21 May and 4, 11 June.

In addition, this year we will be taking part in the first ever National Schools Snowsport Week. On Saturday 23 April, we will run two sessions Introduction To Racing for good skiers who want to try racing. This will be a great opportunity for schools that are new to the sport and for others who have skiers joining your squad.

For more information on the 2016 London Schools Ski Race, please see the race page.

Important Notice to ALL Racers
Due to the quantity of unsportsmanlike behaviour at dry slope races following gate faults, ranging from carrying on to cross the Finish Line, swearing, and pole abuse, all TDs & Race Organisers have been reminded that sanctions are to be applied if behaviour contravenes competition rules. Please be aware that this could ultimately lead to the sanction of 'suspension from events' (ICR 223.3.2).

If you know of any LSERSA skier who has done well anywhere, or have any other news that is suitable for publication here, please email Dom Wakeling.


Skiing

It's ecstasy, anguish, joy and despair.
It's part of our history.
It's part of our country and will be part of our future.
It's theatre, art, war and love.
It should be predictable, but never is.
It's a feeling that can't be explained but we spend our lives explaining it.
It's our religion. We do not deny it, we do not apologise for it.
 
We know how you feel about it because we feel the same.
