Freestyle and Race with Bristol Snow: Give it a Go!

Gloucester Ski and Snowboard Centre, 01 Oct 2019, 6:00PM

The University of Bristol Snowsports Society (UBSC) is more than just a trip! Whether you’re a seasoned racing pro, a back-flipping freestyle beast, or just a decent skier who wants to try their hand at something new, come along to a free taster session at our home-from-home: Mt Gloucester!

UBSC is always looking for like-minded adrenaline junkies and great personalities, so get ready to strap in and get sendy. Rental from Gloucester Ski and Snowboard Centre is included so don’t worry about boots, skis/boards, helmets, or poles (though you can bring your own if you’d like!), all you need is thick socks, decent gloves, and warm clothes you don’t mind getting wet and muddy- no jeans!

For the racers there will be a gates course set up with an instructor, and for the freestylers there will be a kicker, rails/boxes, and an airbag. You don’t need to choose which one you’re interested in just yet, come along and try out both! The committee and current competitors are here to help- ask us any questions you like and get stuck in!

Transport to the slopes is included: pick up from Bristol SU @ 18.00 or from the top of Hollybush Lane (the end that opens up onto the Durdham Downs) in Stoke Bishop @ 18.15.
