ABOUT US

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

For more info, click the links.

  • Training
    • 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 a professional standard airbag. Gloucester is also kitted out with a very good hire shop, ski/board shop and bar with drinks/food deals. 
    • 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.
       
  • Competitions - If you're a competitor there will never be a shortage of things for you to do. 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.
       
  • Winter Trip - This is the most outrageous and by far the best trip on the UWE calendar. A week in the Alps with your mates, hundreds of other students, with amazing skiing, boarding, après and nights out. What more could you want?
     
  • Socials - Every other week we take our members out into Bristol on our renowned socials. Loads of your snowsports friends having a great night out with; cheap entry, drinks deals and prizes to be won. "UWE Snowsports socials were the best nights out I've had since being at uni! I've made friends for life." (UWESS Fresher)
