PRESS RELEASE: eola GBR Series returns this summer

by Ed Scott

The eola GBR Series returns in 2021 with the first race taking place on 3rd July at Norwich, after a year off due to the pandemic last summer.

This is the first year in which the GBR Series will be supported by booking and management system providers, eola, who are the headline sponsors for this year’s races.

The eola GBR Series will bring the highest level of ski racing on UK artificial slopes during five races at outdoor facilities and five on indoor snow.

The races will feature some of the UK’s most promising skiers, giving them a chance to participate in regular ski races at exceptional standard across most age groups – from under-10 through to masters.

All events are sanctioned by the Home Nations Governing Bodies with Snowsport England, Snowsport Scotland and Snowsport Wales, all hosting races meaning races will be running across the country.

The eola GBR series kicks off with a double weekend on 3rd and 4th July at Norfolk Snowsports Club, with the indoor races starting on 17th and 18th July at Chill Factore.

The series will also visit Llandudno, Hillend and Braehead.
