Training

Race: The race team has weekly training sessions, where they travel to either a dry slope or an indoor snowdome. They also take part in regular fitness classes at the University Sports Centre, including spin and Zumba.

Weekly Training Sessions:

Semester 1

Day Time Location
Monday 19:30 – 21:30 Midlothian Snowsports Centre, Edinburgh

Freestyle: Training with the Freestyle Team is conducted weekly at one of two locations: Adventure Aberdeen Snowsports or Glasgow Snow Factor. Freestyle training sessions are held for two hours, and the journey to each location is approximately a four-hour round trip.

Rec: We’ll be hosting ‘give it a goes’ and ‘Skiing in 3’ in the first semester to give people a chance to get on the snow and meet the crowd.

Coaching

Race: The race team receives coaching at their Hillend training sessions by experienced and qualified coaches, who are also often ex-national team members. They set the courses, assign drills and exercises, and give individual feedback to help all members of the team improve their technique, confidence and speed.

Freestyle: Freestyle training sessions will often include coaching for both skiers and snowboarders. Our coaches make it possible for the team to learn new tricks and skills, pushing people outside of their comfort zone in a safe and measured way.

Rec: We will have a BASI level 2 qualified coach to teach you all you need to know to get the basics in for lessons.
