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.

The Northern hemisphere ski season is now in full swing and we wish all our members a successful trip to the Alps, Pyrenees or even the Carpathians

The Thursday ‘FUNdamental’ non-pole sessions restart at The Ackers on January 12th and are planned to run fortnightly.

There will be no training sessions on the week commencing on Saturday 14/1/2023 as all our coaches will be attending the John Arnold Traiing week in Niederau 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. Taster sessions are available on Wednesday nights at Swadlincote from 18:00 to 19:30 and at Ackers Adventure in Birmingham on Friday nights at the same time, and also at the Ackers general skiing taster sessions every alternate Thursday 18:00 to 20:00. See Taster Sessions to book a taster session.

Please book all these as soon as you reasonably can to help the coaches’ planning! If you are then unable to come, we will accept cancellations.

The first of our Winter Races was held at Ackers Adventure on Friday November 18th, the second on December 9th and the third on Friday 13yh January. All were excellent events and great fun. The next one will be held on Friday 13/1/2023. The results of these races can be found here The rest of the dates are: Feb 10th, and Mar 10th. It is great that we are seeing a full range of ages competing from skiers under 8 to over 70. Everyone is welcome to come and have a go.
