2017: Updates from coaches and housemums: largely seasonal but other occasional news will be included.

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 Series.  Numbers are restricted to a dozen trainees per race.

We're Home!!  A whoop Kip:  Crevacol, 18 Jan.  Looking good!



Well done to all the BSA U16 Athletes for some amazing racing over the last few days at the Evolution Speed Races, in Reiteralm, Austria. Gaining podium positions for Daisi Daniels, Tom Hudson and Charles Rankin.


www.britskiacad.org.uk will be reincarnated over the next couple of days,  update completion on Wednesday, with full season information and a new online booking system prepared for our regular BASS races, see below.  Meanwhile, allowing for a bug or two to be dealt with along the way, our contact info as usual:

BSA Admin, bsa@blueyonder.co.uk 0044 208 399 1181
Programme Director, Malcolm, britskiacad@hotmail.com 0044 7970 495533
Artemis Anglo Scottish Cup, 3/4/5 January 2017, Crevacol (ITA)

The Anglo Scottish will be held in Crevacol, a quiet spot close to the Grand Saint Bernard tunnel. There are lots of hotels from Aosta centre up to the ski hill. Visiting teams and families will need to arrange personal transport. With skiing up to 2400 metres it's a relief to have the run of snow-sure race pistes this early in the winter season.

Artemis British Interschool Ski Challenge, 20/21 March 2017, Pila (ITA)

The Interschools will take place in Pila. Visitors can lodge in resort or choose to stay in the valley and ride the gondola from Aosta centre. Since Pila will be hosting international races on 18/19 March, weekend gate training in resort will be limited. However, as an alternative we can offer full pre-Interschools gate training all weekend in the nearby resort of Crevacol. New visitors to the Aosta valley are in for a treat. Wonderful ski hills and great restaurants at affordable prices.

Conrad's movie of the Chile Summer Camp.
High altitude.


First week here in Chile is almost in the books with a well-earned day off starting in less than 12 hours! Quick recap of the first days on snow: Sun, Ice, Steeps, Rollers, Right rippin' skiing, some Tired legs, and Smiles too big to measure with a conventional slalom tape. Here is some proof, although the smiles part you'll just have to take our word on.

Coming up on the end of week 2 here in Chile, and despite the name things are really heating up! Temperatures AND skiing. Over the last few days the athletes were subjected to some high speed SG, a lot more sun, stunning views, and a couple of very early season races to top it all off. Morale is higher than the 3000+ meter altitude we're training at, and the crew is ready for more!

After what has probably been a lifetime of looking for love in all the wrong places, Terry Fox the Chilean street dog took a chance on us and finally found what he's been looking for all these years â€” with Yasmin, Boxie and Oscar.
