The British Ski Academy provides a winter base with highly experienced race coaches to support and encourage junior British racers aiming to achieve the highest standards in Alpine ski racing

The BSA provides the expertise and encouragement necessary for young ski racers to develop their skills, attitude and conditioning while maintaining their academic grades. Based in Champéry, Switzerland, through the whole winter season, we conduct further training throughout the year. See European Camps and UK Camps

British World Cup stars Dave Ryding, Laurie Taylor, Charlie Guest, Alex Tilley & Charlie Raposo collectively spent 25 seasons with the BSA. Alex has now hung up her boots after a stellar career. Best wishes to the remaining four ex-BSA champions on a spectacular 2024 winter season.
