It adapts all the time so keep an eye on it.

These additional training sessions will be posted here but for more information please visit the LSR Facebook Events page.

LSR Scottish Championships Training

Dedicated race simulations prior to the Scottish Dryslope Championships.

These sessions are ideal for those who have never raced before but are tackling the race, as it will let you get to grips with what a race day will bring and how things work.  It is also great for seasoned racers as it will give you a practice run (all be it a different course) for the race.

Please note that these sessions will be full gates from the top.  A minis course will be set from the top of second red, but due to space constraints will not reach the top start box.

The formatt of each session will be confirmed soon, as it is subject to race formatt which has not yet been released by SnowSport Scotland.

We will have timing up, with full inspections and then a night of slapping plastic

Session 1 - 23rd August 2022
Session 2 - 30th August 2022

LSR Scottish Snow Training

We had an awesome time running LSR Scottish Snow Training in 2022 at Glenshee, as well as attending races up at Cairngorm.

Sadly, the snow has all but gone and we cannot train at Glenshee anymore.

We will be back in late 2022/23, as soon as the snow allows!!

LSR Private Training

LSR is more than happy to provide one, two or three on one coaching sessions at Hillend or across Scotland throughout the year.  

The Hillend sessions have to be booked through the ski centre as a standard private lesson.  However, you can request specific LSR coaches.  The cost for these sessions will be Hillend charges only, no additional cost is incurred.

Sessions across Scotland are subject to whatever your needs are and coach availability.  Please note that depending on location, etc. cost will be bespoke for each session, though we will make it as cost effective as possible.
