Varsity Trip 2021: 5th-11th December 2021 in Val Thorens.
99th aniversary of the Varsity Race: 7th December 2021.
If you've always dreamt of competing for your university in a Varsity team, we recommend booking the Racer's Package! Racers leave Oxford on the afternoon of 2nd December to fly out to the resort and get three days of training in before trying out for the University Team. The package includes 15 hrs of race training to increase your chances of shoeing the tabs! You are still able to trial for the teams if you are not on the racers package, and you don't need to have raced before, but the package is definitely a way to get a lot of experience in a short timeframe! Base price for Racer's Package this year is £599.
All racers live in the same accommodation block, but this year there is an option to choose from Tier 1 (Cheval Blanc) or Tier 2 (Village Montana) accommodation. Trials will be held on Monday, 6th December, with the Races taking place on Tuesday. After that, all the Racer's will have the opportunity to attend the exclusive Racers' Dinner and enjoy the VIP treatment at the aprés during the medals ceremony.
To book on the Racer's Package, you will need an early booking code, so please register your interest through this form so we can send you the code once booking opens. Please get in touch with either of the race captains, David or Sarah, for more information on competing at Varsity.
The varsity freestyle competition will occur during the main week of the trip (snow depending) so we recommend booking the main base package, you will be able to practice in the park before the varsity match. No freestyle experience necessary! Please get in touch with Dylan, the Freestyle Captain, for more information on competing at Varsity.
