Welcome to Midland Ski Club

Since we were founded in 1965, MSC has provided all things Alpine skiing to skiers of all ages in the Midlands and beyond. We hold regular race training on dry slopes, social functions, holidays and training weeks on snow.

Thinking of joining us? Please go here to apply.


We have a taster programme for potential members to sample what we have to offer at the introductory price of £5 a time for up to 2 coached sessions. Skiers must be able to ski in controlled link turns, stop and use a drag lift safely. Outdoor long sleeved wear, helmet and gloves to be worn. Equipment hire is included if required

Signing up for your first taster session includes a free registration. A further registration will be required if you subsequently choose to join the club.

Taster sessions are available fortnightly:

Sorry, but we cannot take beginners, snowboarders or adaptive skiers. Please contact the slope facilities for classes they offer.

Our on-line booking system is available here or you may download and install the mobile phone app and use that once you have registered. Search for myclubhouse in the app store. If you are then unable to come, we will accept cancellations.

We ski four evenings a week. Full details of the programme can be found at Midland ski club dryslope training
