Junior Ski Race

Now you can enjoy your skiing knowing that the kids are enjoying theirs. Junior Race begins where many ski schools finish and continues through to club, regional, national and international level.

Junior Race is not just about racing. It’s also about developing a sound toolbox of skills along with making ski racing fun.

Junior Race Courses are suitable for all levels from those with little or no racing experience that have outgrown ski school to experienced racers.

“You have had a thoroughly positive impact on my son. He has decided he is going to live in France, work in skiing and of course appear in numerous Olympics! It is an absolute pleasure to see him so fired up and able to identify with something that he feels he can do and aspire to”

“What a difference the Snoworks philosophy of ‘Racing Open’ has made. This along with allowing the freedom for each child to develop their own style has completely changed the way we look at ski racing”
