by Ed Scott

At eola, our mission is to support the activity industry and get more people out participating in amazing sports and experiences. That’s why we are proud to be sponsoring the 2021 eola GBR Series, a ski race series held on artificial slopes across the UK.

The GBR Series will run throughout the summer in partnership with Snowsport England, Snowsport Wales, and Snowsport Scotland. The series is an opportunity for the country’s finest skiers to compete, with age categories ranging from under-10s all the way through to Master’s. Competitions are split into an outdoor series and an indoor series, held on some of the UK’s finest artificial slopes. 

The eola GBR Series is open to all registered racers and can be entered online via the GB Ski online entry system. For those wanting to come along to support competitors or just watch some great skiing, attendance is free!

Midlothian Snowsports Centre, Hillend

About the slope: Home to the longest dry ski slope in Europe, Midlothian Snowsports Centre sits in the stunning Pentland Hills Regional Park just outside Edinburgh. A high-tech misting system ensures slopes remain lubricated year-round, increasing speed and creating a more snow-like surface.
