Schools Alpine Events

We have, since our inception, supported the various schools’ alpine races with training partners, taking school teams to these to run pre-race training and race support in the alps.

In later years, we have also run the British Schools Alpine Open Champs, using the same ethos as our UK races to be as inclusive as possible.

The races we support include, but are not limited to:

  • Dec – The ISSC – Sestriere
  • Jan – British Schoolboys Races – Wengen
  • Jan – British Schoolgirls Races – Flaine
  • Feb – British Schools Alpine Open Champs – Pila

The British Schools Alpine Open Champs is the race we run in Pila each year.
