Club Price Increases

Increasing costs to the Club and some necessary price changes were discussed at this year’s AGM which was held on 14th September. As a result membership and practice costs will be going up slightly on 1st October but will remain competitive when compared to other slope prices.
There is still the option to enjoy reduced rates on sessions if you purchase a block of 10 admissions (Saver tickets). Alternatively volunteering at the Club gives you an hour free time of the slope for every hour worked. Training is given and we are particularly looking for Tube Supervisors for weekday evening and weekends and Boot Fitters particularly for Saturday afternoons and Sunday.

ERSA Summer League report

This weekend saw the last of the ERSA Summer League races at Brentwood Park Ski Slope and it seems most of the Norfolk Snowsports Race Team travelled down to participate! Some great results in the individual slalom races -  Grace Bushell and Kieran Mitchell taking the U10 top slots with Alex Ogden and Jake Dade 1st and 3rd in U12 Boys.  In the U14s Abby Holmes was 2nd with Tommy Dade, Joseph Thompson and George Bushell sweeping the board in the boy's race.  Megan Skipper  and Jemma Luck were 1st and 2nd in U16s with Jamie Gomez-Clarke 3rd in the boys.

Volunteering opportunity

We are looking to put together a small team of volunteers to help instructors on Saturday afternoons at 2.15pm to 3.15pm and 3.30pm to 4.30pm. The role involves managing the Poma lift and helping the children get on the lift as needed and switching the lift off if they fall. Full training and help while you get used to the task will be given. Freetime on the slope will be given for hours worked. The job is really worthwhile as you can make a big difference to the children's experience when they progress to the main slope and provide invaluable help to the instructors.

Summer Holiday Activities

Now that the holidays are upon us, you may be wondering what to do to keep your young ones (and yourselves) busy during the next few weeks.  Rest assured we have plenty to occupy you and have activities aimed at all ages and levels of ability:

Taster Ski Sessions - Fridays at 11am throughout the holidays.  For those aged 8+, £10pp

Taster Day Camps - Thursdays throughout the holidays, 10:15am-3:15pm, an hour each of skiing, snowboarding and tubing.  For those aged 8-17, £35pp

Changes to times over the Summer Holidays

Wednesday 17th August (1-5pm) - due to Junior Club Camp
