SNOWSPORTS IS FOR EVERYONE
Whether you're beginner level, recreational or pro, Bristol Snowsports is the home for you!
Everyone has to start somewhere, and there's no better place to start than at Bristol uni!
Skiing and snowboarding are incredible sports - great exercise, amazing culture and tonnes of fun. We level the playing field by making our beginner packages incredibly cheap through subsidies, so you can get professional coaching at unbeatable prices. So much so we can have you out in the Alps on our legendary annual trip within several sessions! We've even had beginners train up to compete for Bristol.
It's no wonder almost 100 beginners with no previous experience joined us in the 19/20 season. We're so proud of everyone who took part and we're looking forward to welcoming even more fresh faces into our club next year!
If you would like to get involved, just email and Jenny, our beginners rep, will be able to give you all the information you need.
The beginner package for 1st term WILL OPEN SOON!!! It costs ONLY £99 for 5 weeks of coaching, transport and equipment rental! Interested? Sign up here:
Train & Compete
With dedicated race and freestyle teams for both skiers and boarders, we've got one of the best training set-ups of any university snowsports club. We run weekly training sessions in Gloucester at one of the best dry slopes in the country. We've also got dedicated freestyle nights at Tamworth and indoor racing at Milton Keynes.
These sessions are open to all abilities and the professional coaching on offer will be sure to help you take your riding to the next level. We always look forward to getting new people into the competitive side of the sport we all love, so don't think you already need to be a pro racer to come along! If you're a recreational boarder or skier, we'll train you up.
However, after scoring multiple freestyle podiums at national competitions last year, and with a race team that finished top 8 in the UK to boot, UBSC is also the choice for the serious athlete. With priority access to the university's sports facilities, we have funding to run off-slope training like yoga classes, sports psychology and strength and conditioning sessions.
We're also one of the only universities to run our own Alpine training camp in Winter for a week of intensive coaching, all at a massively subsidised price. With regular competitions throughout the year on dry slopes and in snowdomes, there are plenty of opportunities to let your competitive side out - not to mention making loads of great new friends!
