ISSC 2022 will be held in the former Olympic resort of Sestriere, the highest resort in the Milky Way.

ISSC 2022 will take place from 16th – 22nd December, with the option to fly out a day earlier (15th December) for those wanting an extra days’ race training.

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. Race training and racing take place throughout the event. The event closes with a prize-giving ceremony.

The event is open to all schools that want their young skiers to enjoy the experience of racing their peers on the mountain. Schools that field regular teams include Merchant Taylors, Ardingley, Burgess Hill Girls and Kings Wimbledon, to name but a few.

The event also welcomes individual racers whose schools are not taking part. Please note that a parent or guardian must accompany these racers. Please contact us for further information or to book your place.

The event is run for Boys, Girls and Juniors and features giant slalom and slalom events (with team and individual prizes) and team parallel slalom.
