The ISSC is held in December.
The ISSC is a great opportunity for some early season racing for any keen racers, and also a great introduction to racing for anyone looking to give it a go, or get into the sport. Some schools see it as a training camp, and others as more of an introduction to ski racing.
The Championships run for 6 nights and 5 days. This includes 3 days of ski race training and 2 days of competition. The event closes with a prize-giving ceremony.
The event is open to all schools who want their young skiers to enjoy the experience of racing their peers on the mountain. Schools that field regular teams include Wycombe Abbey, Uppingham, Churchers College, Bedes, Ardingly College, Hurst College, Bradfield College, Whitgift School, Lancing College, Packwood Haugh, Clifton High School, and Kings College Wimbledon.
The event also welcomes individual racers whose schools are not taking part. Please note that these racers must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please contact us for further information or to book your place.
