LSR Pathway

Ski racing should be enjoyable - skiing is a sport for life and can lead to wonderful opportunities and friendships.

We offer the following training:

  • Weekly Training: 30 sessions of 1.5-2 hrs technical skiing & gates
  • Race Prep: Blocks of supervised gates sessions scheduled before major dry slope races
  • Training Camps: Fitness & skiing in both Scotland and abroad

Our ski racing pathway is designed around Long Term Athlete Development, and fits in with the Snowsport Scotland pathway. LSR will provide high quality training sessions at Hillend and this should be part of a mix with snow opportunities and other sports.
