Midland Ski Club

Welcome to Midland Ski Club

Midland Ski Club is one of the longest-established ski clubs in Britain - in 2015 we celebrated our 50th anniversary. We provide Coaching, Holidays, Racing and Social events for all those interested in skiing. Our main base is in Birmingham, where we use Ackers Adventure in Small Heath. We also use the Snow Sport Centre in Swadlincote and hold social functions in Birmingham. Most of our skiing is Alpine (downhill).

Midland Ski Club Taster Sessions - Every Friday, 6-7:30pm and 7:30-9:00pm, at Ackers Adventure, Small Heath, Birmingham. We offer the same times at Swadlicote on a Wednesday evening. If you just want to improve your general skiing skills we offer a taster session at Ackers Adventure for our 2 hour Fundementals training programme on Thursday evening, which runs every fortnight.

Would you like to improve your skiing before your winter holiday? Join in our social activities and club holidays? Try racing? If you can use a drag lift, ski using linked turns, control your speed and stop safely, one of taster sessions with our qualified coaches could be for you.

The first Taster session is £5.

These are held at Ackers Adventure, Golden Hillock Road, Birmingham, B11 2PY.

Please wear trousers and long-sleeved clothing, bring gloves and a helmet if you have one. Equipment hire is included or bring your own. Just turn up on the night! All ages welcome.

Important note: MSC is a club that runs sessions at The Ackers but is independent of the slope. We cannot take complete beginners. Please contact Ackers Adventure in this case to join one of their own sessions.

We ski year-round, on snow when conditions allow and on trips abroad, and on artificial slopes – outdoor plastic, and indoor snow- in the UK.

All year we run race training and coaching sessions on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights on the artificial slope at Ackers Adventure in Birmingham, for all levels of skier except novices. On Wednesday evenings we also offer race training at Swadlincote Snowsports Centre.

We have a large number of active racers at all levels, and most weekends throughout the summer will see us travelling the country for various races, and some are lucky/good enough to race on snow too.

In the Winter we run a monthly series of races at The Ackers for entry level racers upwards, and for all ages. In 2019-20, ages ranged from 4 to 70!

Annually, we normally run three ski holidays, on two of which we provide coaching from the club's qualified instructors.

Our Social events include talks on outdoor topics, normally held at Hollyfields Sports and Conference Centre, Erdington, walks, barbecues and weekends away.

Members also get together informally for trips to America, Ski Touring, early-season trips - and everything else related to skiing.
