British Schools Alpine Open Championship


This great, enjoyable schools event is running in February 2023. With the races already open for entry, this looks to be a highlight of the schools alpine calendar with training held over the early weekdays and race days later in the week. 

The event is open to all schools and entry is now open, closing on February 1st 2023. This closing date may be brought forward, should the event become full earlier as is the case with some of our UK races. 

The races will be run along the same accessible lines as the National Schools Series with the fastest of 2 (or 3, depending on entry numbers) runs to count, meaning that even if you don’t finish one run, you have the ability to still get a result. 

The event will include a giant slalom race for all ages and a slalom for U14’s and above with a Kombi for U10/U12 age groups.

The event runs on the 8-10 February 2023, with

open training on the 5-8 February (must be booked in advance).

The event itself will be available as entry only or, in order to help the less experienced racers and schools, The NSSA are working with local hotels, transfer companies and a travel partner to offer a package for the event, with transfers, accommodation, lift passes, flights and training for two/three days prior to the races.

We welcome fledgling skiers so if racing is something your schools skiers would like to try, please come and join us. We will also be running UK training prior to the event for anyone wanting to get additional practice. 

For the event, the NSSA are once again, engaging the services of experienced schools training organisation, Impulse Racing to run this event in their home resort base of Pila, Italy. 

This resort was chosen due to its accessibility, within two hours of Geneva or Milan, an hour from Turin and Chamonix. As schools events go, it’s the most accessible open schools event of the winter.
