Sporting Focus: QM Snowsports Club

This week we are shining the light onto our amazing QM Snowsports club! Get the low down on everything you need to know about this club below.

What days and times do you train? Where do you train?

Our ski racers train every Tuesday at Gosling dryslope. We also hold freestyle/recreational sessions which are usually bi-weekly on a Thursday at Hemel indoor slopes. Make sure to check out our Facebook page for details if you’re interested!

What makes your training sessions enjoyable?

 The fact that you’re skiing or snowboarding in London! It often seems surreal to be carrying skis and snowboards through London on the tube! The training sessions always have a relaxed atmosphere and people of all levels are welcomed.

What was your club’s biggest success of the past year?

Last year our snowboard team won a silver medal at the national university indoor championships! We also took 120 people on our ski trip to Val Thorens but this year will be taking 140 to Tignes! We are a growing club with big aspirations so watch out for more success this year!

So why should people get involved?

Snowsports is like a big family! We still have students part of the club who graduated 5 years ago.. We have the best socials of any club at QM including the pièce de résistance our Christmas Ski trip to the Alpes, places are sold out for this year but watch out next October when booking goes live for our 2019 trip!

And a final fun fact about this club?

Some people say that we are a drinking club with a skiing problem but we couldn’t possible comment on that statement. Our national success proves otherwise! For the drinking side, come to one of our socials and see for yourself what we’re all about!
