A-Z of Sports


Snowsport England (SSE) is the Governing Body for Skiing, Snowboarding, Nordic, Telemark, Skiercross, Ski jumping and Freestyle in England.

The word Snowsport conjures up images of mountains, holidays and having fun with friends and family. The sport offers so much more. For a start there are many different sports within this sport! There are also many different ways people can participate.

There are 76 clubs currently affiliated to Snowsport England, and these clubs are a vital part of the structure of the sport. The clubs are located all over England, and vary in size from the largest club with over 4000 members, to small clubs with less than 20 members. These clubs vary in the services they provide, from the complete beginner to members of the GB squads.

There is a very strong summer programme of races and competitions across England with an event almost every weekend from April through to October. These take place both indoors and outdoors and again regularly attract up to 300 entries. This list does not include the local summer and winter league races that are run around the country for people new to the sport.

In addition to those who compete, there are many other people who participate in other ways through recreational skiing and boarding. Find your local slope and give it a go!
