Welcome to Welwyn Garden City Ski Race Club!

We are a ski race training club based at the dry slope on Gosling Sports Park in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. Our ski race team competes regionally and nationally at ski race events. We train throughout the year on Friday evenings 7-9pm, and we welcome skiers of all ages, from 6 years to adults.

Great news! – Outdoor snowsports can now restart from 29 March 2021 under Covid Secure procedures. Gosling Sports Park has reopened, and our Race Training sessions are starting every Friday evening from 16th April 2021.

What are we all about?

We are based at Gosling Ski Centre and aim to promote the sport of ski racing through fun, skilful and safe ski training. We have a dedicated team of coaches that help develop our ski racers to reach their full potential.

The club introduces novices to the sport and helps develop established racers. Our skiers’ age range is from 6 through to adults. Club members compete in the summer season races, which run annually from April to September, organised by Eastern Region Snowsports Association (ERSA), as well as Club National and Tri Regions races.

We also encourage and advise those skiers interested in competing in Alpine competitions during the winter season, and who may wish to do training camps in the Alps with one of the many good ski academies.

WGC Ski Race Club has trained some skiers that have gone on to win several medals and trophies on the Alpine circuit.

Weekly training sessions for the Ski Race Club run throughout the year on Friday nights 7-9pm.
