Ask4events are hosting our online fundraiser, we have some cracking auction lots, direct link to the auction site and information on lots here. We are raising money for the BSA and for some of our top Alpine competitors. The auction is now live and closes the day after the night slalom in Schladming. Support your local ski racers.

The ASC will be held in Pila/Crevacol Italy with three days of racing for bairns (U10/U12) and four days for U14/16. Bairns will have a stubby slalom, combi and giant slalom.  Race entry is now open

For those teams and families coming into the valley we recommend putting up in Aosta.  It is most likely the races will be held in Pila, with lift access from the town, and Crevacol is an unhurried, 30 minute drive. We hope to confirm location in the week leading up to the event.

The Snowsport England report on the BSA sponsored GBR series is now available online with a pdf of combined winners . BSA programme bursaries will be awarded to the top three in each category - and any untaken bursaries will filter down through first five places.

Our best wishes to all the competitors who took part, and we hope to see you next year.


This in from Brad:  Best crash of the weekend at Castleford (Charlie Quinn) awarded with BSA T-shirt.

I hope Charlie is recovering well, and I would like to have heard Graham Dickson's insightful commentary.  Hopefully some upright action photos to follow: we post them as they come.

We are delighted to welcome Rob Worrell to the 2017/2018 coaching staff. Rob joins us on a year's sabbatical from the prestigious Ski & Snowboard Club Vail (SSCV).
USSA Alpine coach of the year 2016, Rob was formerly Steamboat Springs Head Coach and US Ski Team Regional Coach before joining SSCV. Rob had the fortune of an SSCV partnership with Ski Gymnasium Stams where he spent over 3 months training in their system, as well as studying the Norwegian system on a fact finding mission in 2014.
Rob is motivated to continue to push GBR athletes to higher levels and to see each athlete reach their full ski racing potential. He says his greatest satisfaction as a coach is seeing maximum progress, and athletes who put their chin in the fall line!
Many thanks to SSCV for the loan of their Mens Alpine Director and U16 Head Coach. And thanks as ever to our sponsors, Artemis Investment Management, whose support continues to bolster the scope and quality of the British Ski Academy programme.

Race support is available for all the events in the series.  Through the summer a rotating staff includes Brad, Alain, Laurie and others with Malcolm generally in attendance as we are this year’s sponsors.  Race support can be booked through our ( effortless) online system at   EVENT/GBR SeriesNumbers are restricted to a dozen trainees per race.  Numbers are restricted to a dozen trainees per race.
