Snow Sports

About

Queen Mary Snowsports provide the opportunity to learn both skiing and snowboarding from any level – whether you’re a pro or a complete beginner, we would love to have you join our club and share the snowy love! We run biweekly lessons indoor as well as on the trip. Check out our facebook page for more info!

Want to compete? we have an established race team competing on a regional and national level throughout the year on dryslope, indoor and in the alps. We will be getting involved as soon as the government and regulatory bodies allow competitions to resume.

SOCIALS? We run many. Due to the current climate the majority of these events will be online, but check out our social media for more information. As rules change we will go back to our normal socials including special events to celebrate 10 years of QMSS!

Make sure to follow and like us on Facebook to keep up to date with all training sessions, competitions, and social events.
