We currently have a few spaces for our next block of Sunday ski race lessons at Hillend and wondered if there are any other children that would like to try this.
Children are required to be competent skiers (Hillend level 6 or above) but do not need to be in the Cramond Ski Club that skis at Hillend on Friday afternoons.
Hillend Level 6 (which can differ from other ski schools level 6) is obtained when skiers are able to perform parallel turns with pole plant from at least the middle station at Hillend.
The race lessons usually run in blocks of 4 and are on Sunday evenings (5:15-6:30pm) at Hillend. The next block is likely to run over the following dates: 1st Feb, 8th Feb, 1st Mar, 8th Mar. Cost is expected to be around £40-£48 for the 4 week block, but will depend on final numbers. There is no obligation to do any more than the 4 week block if your child just wants to try out ski racing.
The Ski Race Team has had lessons up at Hillend on Sundays for the last few years and they also take part in ski racing competitions. We have a qualified race instructor teaching the kids techniques for speed and slalom racing. It’s a great way for them to continue to progress their skiing and good fun too!
If you think this is something your child would be interested in please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
