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: 35-40 sessions of 1.5-2 hrs technical skiing & gates.
  • Race Prep: Blocks of supervised gates sessions scheduled before major dry slope races.
  • Training+: Sessions at Hillend, Firpark, SnowFactor Braehead etc.
  • Scottish Snow Training: Sessions on the real stuff, based at Glenshee.
  • Training Camps: Fitness & skiing, in both Scotland and abroad.
  • Private Training: Bespoke private sessions held whenever and wherever you want.

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.

Weekly Training is split over a number different sessions, subject to age, progression and future development.
