Racers enjoy many rounds of KINGs (Dry Slope) throughout the year and as a club, we go to BUDs (Weekend Dry Slope competition in Scotland, also the best weekend of your life), BUISC (Indoor Snow) and Main Event / Above and Below (Week in the Alps). At the end of the year we also hold Varsity between us and UoB - let's find out who's best!
    • These are open to both Racers and Freestylers.
