We have weekly sessions to Stoke dryslope for lessons, or race and freestyle training, and fortnightly sessions at Tamworth snowdome for your freestyle needs. We also go to Milton Keynes for recreational skiing around once a month.
We offer a wide range of oppurtunities for all abilities for cheap, student friendly prices!
If recreational boarding/ skiing is just not enough, we also have amazing competitions for you to enter in both slalomn racing for board and skiing and freestyle.
The Midland Dome series takes place at Milton Keynes snowdome, for you to take part in freestyle and/or racing (for both board and ski), finals take place at Castleford Snowdome during the final term.
For dryslope competions, KINGS is great fun- it's casual competitive racing for board and ski in relay teams against other midlands universities, taking place at Birmingham dry slope. Fancy dress is required, we have themes for each one and we can win some fab boozy prizes for race wins and fancy dress!
Our greatest competition getaway to Edinburgh for a weekend in November for the British Dryslope Championships is not one to be missed. It is a weekend of racing and freestyle, and nights out, and is an unforgettable weekend with LUSSC.
LUSSC has amazing fortnightly socials, and is a great way to get to know and make friends with the committee and LUSSC members! Our biggest and best social is Camera Social on October 13th, which attracts over 100 Leicester students for a crazy bar crawl, ending up at the O2's Shabang.
We also have non drinking socials, past ones have included movie nights and meals out.
The highlights of LUSSC are definitely our Christmas and Easter trips which prove to be the most memorable parts of university life for current members and previous members who have graduated.
