Racing

Whether you have done no racing before or are very experienced we would love to get you involved. Our main event is the Varsity match against Cambridge on the Varsity Trip in December, where we field both Men's and Women's Blues Teams along with a 2nds and 3rds Men's and 2nd Women's Teams. 

If you are a beginner to racing then Cuppers is the event for you, the inter-collegiate competition is held one evening at Milton Keynes. 

 

Cuppers

Slalom indoor skiing cuppers will be taking place in Michaelmas at Milton Keynes indoor slope. Get a team of 4 people together (at least one member must be a girl or a boarder) to compete for the glory of your college in what promises to be fantastic race night! More info about entering a team and general details will follow. Provided with the entry fee (usually paid for by the college JCR) you will receive free equipment rental. No minimum standard required, come along and give it a go! (to use the slope you must be able to use a drag lift, control your speed and link your turns)

 

Race Training

For those of you who can’t wait to hit the slopes after a long summer we will also be running weekly race training evenings at SNO!zone Milton Keynes. This is a great chance to brush up on your racing skills in time for Varsity or just to try your hand at slalom skiing if you’ve never raced before. Qualified coaches will be there to provide guidance on improving your race techniques whether you are a beginner or a racing expert. It's a bargain at just £20 for a 2 hour session including transport (and if you can drive you can get it even cheaper).
