Welcome to Gloucester Ski Club Race Academy

Snow training is organised in partnership with dedicated snow based training clubs. These include the British Ski Academy and Dragons Alpine, which allow Members to race and train on snow as much as possible. Many members attend the British and English Alpine Championships, as well as other snow races.
At Gloucester we concentrate on ensuring you have top quality training back here in the UK and our racers compete at all levels, from local summer race leagues up to international races. Membership is open to all, with the club enjoying a fun atmosphere. The emphasis is on everyone being able to ski and race at their own level, but most important of all to enjoy it.
