International Open Schools Ski Championships

  • Would your advanced skiers like to take their skiing to the next level?
  • Do you know students who would like to gain some racing experience?
  • Are you looking to offer competitive winter sports on the GSCE OR A-level curriculum?
  • Or do you want to encourage elite skiing but have found it inaccessible up to now?

Following on from the successful of last year’s International Open Schools Ski Championships, we are thrilled to be returning to the slopes next Easter with Impulse and BISS Racing. Perfect for any school with advanced skiers looking for a challenge, we will be holding a 4-day ski training camp culminating in two days of competitions.

Dates

Saturday 4th April to Friday 10th April 2020

Location

Wagrain, Austria

International Open Schools Ski Championships

Your students will receive top-level coaching from experienced ski coaches, in classes of no more than 8. This will be led by race programme director Phil Brown,  chair of the National Schools Snowsports Association and former head coach of the National Children’s Ski Team.  The training days will include gate training, technical drills and all-mountain skiing. The final two days will be taken up with slalom, giant slalom and parallel slalom races – the ultimate way to ski head to head with your team mates! Races will be organised in age and gender categories, and students will be recognised for achievement and commitment.

The week will be based in Wagrain, our flagship and snow-sure ski resort in Austria, and the package includes accommodation, flights and transfers. This is a brand new event in the UK ski race calendar,  aimed at schools that may not yet have  had the opportunity to take part in ski racing. We have chosen to hold the event in the school holidays to make it accessible to as many schools as possible. The competition is run under the guidance of the National School Snowsports Association so it is the perfect entry-level event into competitive ski racing.

In addition, to help you get your team ski-week ready; we will be offering two indoor race training events at a dry ski slope or snow dome closest to the majority of participating schools.
