Midland Ski Club

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.

We are currently limited by Covid-19 guidelines, so please bear with us while we do the best we can in all our programmes.

Dry slope training.

We ski on 5 evenings a week to offer as much opportunity as possible to train while group numbers are restricted. These coached sessions are for those who would like to improve their technical skills and to train using poles or stubbies with racing in mind.

Monday Swadlincote Snowsports Centre
Tuesday Ackers Adventure, Birmingham
Wednesday Swadlincote Snowsports Centre
Thursday Ackers Adventure, Birmingham
Friday Ackers Adventure, Birmingham
On all evenings
U12 and less experienced skiers 6:00 - 7:30 pm
12 and over 7:30 – 9:00 pm
Cost £16 per 1.5 hour session

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

We have introduced an on-line booking system available here or via the widget on this page. You will need to register at this address with your email address to be able to cancel bookings and make changes to bookings.

To help members with making bookings,cancelling bookings and rescheduling I have produced a short video here where I go through the processes.

Remember to make bookings use book here and to modify bookings use this address

We anticipate that many of you will be keen to get back to training as soon as possible. To ensure that we have sufficient places to enable everyone who wants to ski to be able to do so we request that members voluntarily restrict booking a max of one session per skier for the first week, 2nd to 4th Dec, and two sessions per week thereafter, till Christmas. Should there still be available slots with 72 hours to go then please feel free to book these as you wish. The last coaching before Xmas will be Friday 18th Dec and we currently hope to restart in the New Year on Monday 4th January 2021, subject to any revised Covid regulations.

Any feedback, questions, technical issues? Please contact John Elgy at john@elgy.org.uk.

Thinking of joining us? If you wish to train with us, you can try us out twice before joining our club. Please contact us to check availability before booking a session.
