We are pleased to be able to publish the meets calendar for the 2021/22 season and are very hopeful of a good season's skiing. Of course we may still face restrictions due to Covid-19. To this end meets may have to be cancelled or substantially rearranged at short notice. Please refer to the club's statement in relation to Covid-19 and before deciding on whether to apply for a particular meet, please assess your own tolerance to the COVID-19 risks involved.
NOTE: For meets that are repeats from those cancelled last year you will have to book on again - meet leaders are not holding places from last season.
There are some spaces on the calendar and it is possible to add one or two meets if you have ideas for this season. Additional to the specific meets we also feature the WhatsApp group with the intention of enabling members to link up at short notice when conditions look favourable.
