SheffSki Club

|

Welcome to The University Of Sheffield Ski Club

SheffSki is a club which aims to enable, encourage and facilitate skiing for students at the The University of Sheffield. We do this by training and competing indoors and on dry slopes in both racing and freestyle. We also run ski holidays to the Alps twice a year which are not to be missed with everyone from beginners to seasoned skiers welcome

SheffSki is the University of Sheffield Ski club which runs a huge variety of ski related events throughout the year. The most predominant of these events are the two enormous ski holidays which we organise for students every year. One during the Christmas break and one during the Easter break. These are fantastic holidays that people rave about at the university, however we also do so much more.

Competing year round in racing and freestyle competitions around the country against other university in the BUCS league is a huge part of what we do. If you are a keen racer or freestyler or just want to give it a try we are always looking for new skiers and to offer our knowledge to others. Our largest competition of the years is BUDS and is a fantastic long weekend spent in Edinburgh with huge parties and almost every university ski club in the country attending.

Finally the parties organised by Sheffski are offered year round, with socials progressing all the way through the academic semesters. Our excellent sponsorship from the bars in Sheffield ensures you a good value for money night and everyone in the club is friendly and welcoming.

We also offer a selection of merchandise which can be seen frequently around university and is sold by us at certain 'merch sales' throughout the year. For more information please like our Facebook page 'SheffSki - Sheffield University Ski Club' and feel free to message it with any questions.

Sign up via the Sport Sheffield website! Visit us at the sports fair on the 27th September or message us on Facebook if you need any help. Membership includes a t-shirt and welcome pack!

This year we are aiming to build on the huge success of the club, particularly: - Win Varsity (again) - Run 2 huge ski trips - Qualify for BUCS finals in race and freestyle

Training

Details

SheffSki runs both freestyle and race training. We will be offering a racing 'give it a go' option at the beginning of the year where people can try ski racing, from there training will be held at irregular intervals throughout the year (due to competition times). The freestyle training will be taking place during the evenings in Castleford's indoor slope. We run regular lessons at Castleford's indoor slope for beginners or anyone who feels like they need some instruction on their skiing! There is also the option for a 3 hour lift pass without instruction if you are missing the mountains and need a skiing fix. Information for all training dates (race, freestyle and lessons) will be posted via our Facebook page.
