|Bracknell (Skier-X) (2016-10-01)|
Snowsport South is a division of Snowsport England and is the regional governing body responsible for promoting all disciplines of Skiing and Snowboarding in the southern region of England.
Racing within the league is aimed at providing young athletes and new comers the ability to train in a competitive but fun environment in preparation for the Snowsport England National events.
To enter races, please first register using (register) on the right of the menu bar. You can then log in and enter races.
This year the Berkshire Race Squad supported by Snowsport South are breaking new ground and running a Ski Cross event at the Bracknell slope on Saturday the 1st October. Entries for the event (£12) are open via this website. It will run from 14:00 to ~19:00 depending on numbers. It will be possible to borrow slope skis (but this should be booked in advance - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
The course will consist of 2 entry level jumps linked by GS turns around stubbies and should be easily managed by any skier of a reasonable standard. For those novices who decide that they cannot manage the jumps but still want to participate in the race (Individual runs only), there is an opportunity to miss the jumps (novices will not be entered into the Head to Heads or Knockout). Head to Heads with 2 racers on course at any one time will be run in 3 age groups. The top seeds in each age group will then progress into the Knockouts.
A couple of years ago a charity Ski Cross event was organised on the same slope and it was a most enjoyable ski race event. A BBQ will be available. We look forward to seeing you there.
The race bulletin and entry list will be posted here and sent out to all entrants after entries have been closed (midnight on Thursday 29 September).
The Snowsport South AGM will be held on Tuesday 15 November at Snowtrax. The secretary should be sent any items for the agenda and nominations for executive officers by Tuesday 1 November - email@example.com.
The agenda will be circulated 7 days before the meeting.
Congratulations to everyone who raced at Southampton and thank you to all those who helped with the officiating.The race could not happen without you!

At bib allocation, a sheet will be given to each club representative. This will ask for information regarding the team races and must be returned to the timing hut immediately after the end of the 3 individual timed runs. We need to know:
whether a club wishes to enter 1 or 2 teams into the Open Club Championship
who the team members are for the Open Club Championship team(s)
which racers want to do the Fun Team event
(A racer can only enter one or other of the team events.)
The slope will be running a BBQ during the day.
Directions to the slope - postcode SO16 7AY
The Alpine Centre is about two and half miles north of the city centre. It is part of a major sports complex, so follow signs for the SPORTS CENTRE. All vehicles can be left in the main Sports Centre car parks and the Alpine Centre can be approached on foot, but please allow 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, there is a small council car park (not under the control of the Alpine Centre) located above the slope which is accessed from Winchester Road via Vermont Close.
