With the GBR Series about to start, we are offering pre-race training at all the summer events as well as daily race support. BSA Staff coaches will be joined along the way by Olympians Alain and Baxter and Laurie Taylor.  Further details at: website/events also see Snowsports Facebook Page, GBR Series.


Four plucky former BSA trainees knocked out Team USA in Saturday morning's Olympic Alpine team event, and were then only two tenths off beating the Norwegian team (the eventual bronze medal winners). An inspired performance from Alex Tilley, Laurie Taylor, Charlie Guest and Dave Ryding, who finished in joint fifth place. Putting that alongside Dave's ninth place in the Olympic slalom, only half a second from bronze, and Laurie's 26th place, that's our best Olympic showing in sixteen years.

Back in the day these rockstars logged a total of 150 weeks of ski academy training between the four of them. Dave is a wee bit of a ringer on Team BSA with only a few weeks logged, but hey, we'll take him. We are immensely proud of these athletes and look forward to presenting them with training awards of £2500 each when they get home, courtesy of the BSA 2018 Olympic Auction. Many thanks to everyone who supported the fundraiser. You are helping to keep our senior racers on the road and improving opportunities for junior races with an even better ski academy.

Dear Ski Folk 


FOUR BSA TRAINEES MAKE THE 2018 WINTER OLYMPIC TEAM

Congratulations to Dave Ryding, Charlie Guest, Laurie Taylor and Alex Tilley, who have been selected for the GB Alpine ski team to the PyeongChang Games. The British Ski Academy played a major part in the development of Charlie, Alex and Laurie. Less so with Dave but we're proud to have given him a leg up onto the national team. These heroes and heroines of GB Alpine will receive an equal share of one third of the auction fundraiser. Looks like that should breach £2000 for each of the athletes. 

MANY THANKS to everyone who has contributed with donations and auction bids.

Bidding closes tomorrow night on any lots that have already been staked out by keen-eyed well-wishers of the BSA and of our GB Alpine Team. The fundraiser will stay open to facilitate donations and there are some auction lots not yet snapped up... Take another look. The BSA uniform is offered at less than cost. And there's a video of the Chel-ski set up for the Mollie King lot .


Please make a bid!


VISIT AUCTION SITE HERE  

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.
