Ski Racing

Train for speed - Join Snow Factor Racing

Our weekly club for junior skiers

Snow Factor Racing

Snow Factor Racing (SFR) is a weekly club for junior ski racers between the ages of 8-15 years. Whether you have experience or are totally new to the ski racing, we provide a progressive training programme to take you from entry level to competition standard.

Snow Factor Racing also offers introductory workshops for adults looking to get into Ski Racing or those who simply want to take their skiing to the next level. Upcoming workshops will be advertised on this page and social media – watch this space!

We take part in outdoor and indoor races, as well as races that are scheduled for Scottish Ski Resorts.

Competing is not compulsory to train with SFR, though we do encourage taking part in race events for those of the appropriate standard.

Autumn, Winter & Spring

Block Dates

Training will recommence on Sunday the 25th of August and will follow the Glasgow school calendar taking place on Sunday’s during term time.

Race training takes place as follows:

  • Race Practise & Race Development Group –  0815hrs until 1030hrs

Please note: that we cannot accommodate all regional variances for school holidays and as such go by Glasgow City Council’s school holidays.

Our Coaches

Snow Factor Racing is led by coaches Gordon and Stuart who split the group into groups based on age and ability.

Denni introduces skiers new to racing techniques to the skills needed to improve their technique and abilit. They can look forward to improving their overall skiing ability and beginning to ski stubbies.

Gordon takes those comfortable with stubbies and introduces his group to to full gates and more formal race practice to develop and progress the skiers skills through the course of the block.

Stuart  coaches the more advanced racer to refine and improve their existing race technique with the view of increasing speed and style.
