Welcome to UWE Snowsports, home of the infamous winter trip

What do we do?

As a club throughout the year, we achieve and get up to a number of things:

  • Weekly Ski Training - Hosted at Gloucester Dry Slope with a fully setup race course with starting blocks, freestyle area with kickers, rails and boxes as well as professional standard air bag. Gloucester is also kitted out with a very good hire shop, ski/board shop and bar. 
  • Indoor Snow Trips - We head off to the likes of Milton Keynes and Hemel Hempstead throughout the year to keep you tuned in on real snow.
  • Winter Trip - This is the most outrageous and by far the best trip on the UWE calander. A week in the Alps with your mates, hundreds of other students, with amazing skiing and nights out. What more could you want?
  • Easter Trip - If you couldn't get enough in December, we do it all over again in Easter.
  • Competitions - If you're a competitor there will never be a shortage of things for you to do. Racers enjoy many rounds of KINGs thoughout 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 (Week in the Alps) and all of these are open to both Racers and Freestyers. At the end of the year we also hold Varisty between us, UoB and Bath - lets find out who's best. 
  • Socials - Every other week we take our members out into Bristol for outrageous socials. Lots and lots of your snowsports friends having a great night with cheap entry, cheap and free drinks and prizes to be won. Again, what more could you want?
