The University of St Andrews Snowsports Teams consist of three individual teams; race, freestyle, and recreational. Each of these teams is made up of both novice and advance skiers. Both the race teams and the freestyle teams compete in numerous competitions throughout the year while the recreational team is non-competitive.
Race Team: The race team consists of experienced and novice racers, who enjoy training and competing together. As well as continuing and developing the competitive nature of the team, there is also a focus on building on everyone’s individual skills and potential. This year the race team will be competing in SUDS, BUDS, and SUISC.
Freestyle Team: Over the course of each year, the freestyle team competes in four competitions: SUDS, BUDS, SUISC and Granite City. This coming year, we plan to take the team back to these four unique and outstanding opportunities to compete.
