RACE

For everyone out there, whether you’re a complete beginner or a race enthusiast, there’s a place for everyone in NUSSC so don’t hesitate to come chat to us about getting involved. We’re one of the UK’s top race clubs, having won our fair share of competitions over the past few years. We hold training sessions each week at a local dryslope, where our team of qualified coaches has the experience needed to get you winning medals and those all-important BUCS points!

NUSSC competes in the following races throughout the year:

  • BUDS: The British University Dryslope Championships are held in Edinburgh. November 8th-9th will be an unforgettable weekend of racing and freestyle with over 1000 competitors and many more supporters. Topped off with the BUDS Ball, it promises to be one of the best weekends you’ll have all year and is a great way to kick start your year at uni.
  • KINGS dual slalom race series: The Kings races are a series of monthly regional events (our league races in Rossendale, near Manchester). These are an easy entrance to the racing side of skiing. Even if you are a new to it, these races are a fun, relaxed way to get started... complete with a fancy dress theme! We take 4 mixed ski teams, 2 ladies’ teams and 2 board teams plus anyone who wants to come along and support - so there’s room for everyone. Winning teams receive mountains of ‘Champagne’ as well as progressing to the national finals, a head to head showdown with the top teams from other leagues. These finals are held at a dryslope in Brentwood, Essex followed by an Annual Awards Dinner and Ball in London. For more information, visit http://kingsski.org
  • BUISC: The British University Indoor Snowsports Championships have a northern round followed by the final which are both held at Xscape, Castleford in February with yet more racing, freestyle and drinking!
  • BUSC Main Event: On the BUSC Easter trip get ready for an absurdly fun week with 1000s of students from the UK together at one resort in the Alps. The trip gives you everything from beginner lessons to racing and freestyle competitions for all abilities! BUSC hosts incredible nights all week with top DJs and bands performing, including a party on the last night where medals are awarded to competitors. Main Event is truly unmissable.
