Scottish Ski Club Race Training
SSC Racing provides training & racing opportunities to young skiers in Scotland. One of the country’s oldest ski racing programs, SSC Racing has produced multiple Olympic & World Cup skiers over the years, including current British #1 Charlie Guest. From the famed Cairngorm Mountain to the Alps and beyond, SSC provides athletes not just with the skiing skills to compete against the best in the country, but also with fantastic experiences & opportunities travelling the country and the world to take part in the sport they love.
Training For All
Whether you’re brand new to ski racing or you’re a national team athlete, SSC race training is for you.
Our Cairngorm training provides a fantastic environment to get more snow skiing experience, ideal for good skiers and those who have been training on dry slope.
For those that want a bit more, come abroad with us and experience training & racing in the alps. Our program has plenty of training opportunities and follows the British BASS racing calendar.
Whether you’ve never skied beyond your local dryslope or you’re a national team racer, training at Cairngorm is for you. If you are a good skier and can use all uplifts, we would love to coach you! Open to all U10-U16s, with U8s taken on a trial basis.
Running every weekend of the winter from January to April, as well as during holiday weeks, we train whatever the weather, and support you at the Scottish snow races.
Our alpine training & racing opportunities in the Alps are open to all young skiers with racing experience and is suitable for U10-U16 age groups. The program is based around residential camps though non-residential options are available.
It’s the perfect chance for young skiers in Scotland to take their racing to the next level – compete against Britain’s best in the reliable conditions Europe has to offer.
All our coaches are fully qualified, first-aid trained and PVG checked. They are experienced, passionate, and here to help young athletes get the most out of their skiing!
The coaches are not just there to teach skiing. Firstly, they keep trainees safe, and secondly they help them to have fun! All SSC trainees will learn to be resilient, respectful teammates, gaining valuable life experience and becoming more independent, all whilst going fast in the mountains!
The club is looking to start an equipment pool to provide young members with the resources they need to get into and perform in ski racing. We are appealing for donations of any ski equipment you no longer wish to keep. Get in touch with the Head Coach by email with details of your equipment.
