    British Girls' Races British Boys' Races

    British School Girl Races and
    British School Boy Races

    We’re proud to be sponsors of the British School Boy Races and the British School Girl Races to help our young skiers achieve their dreams. Equity Ambassador and four-time Olympian Chemmy Alcott competed with her school at the British School Girl Races and says:

    The first year at the British School Girl Races was one of my first big races competing as a team. By this point I had raced successfully many times as an individual but sharing the responsibility for our school’s ski team was both thrilling and nerve-wracking in equal measures.

    I remember being unsure of what tactics to adopt - would I all out charge and go for my best times or would I ski within myself and safely to make sure we got a finish for the team.

    Sierra Nevada - some images courtesy of the Andorra Tourist Board, with whome we are proud to be working in partnership

    One of the most popular mountain ranges to ski in Spain, Sierra Nevada is in the Andalucia area, only a short transfer from either Granada or Malaga airports. It is the second highest and sunniest mountain range in Europe, with six different ski areas offering great variety for skiers and snowboarders.

    Views of the Mediterranean Sea provide a stunning backdrop when choosing this resort. Schools will have lunch at the slopes just a short distance from where they start their lessons.

    Sierra Nevada is a welcoming resort with shops, restaurants, a cinema and lots of entertainment. As you look out at the stunning snow-capped mountains of this region it’s hard to believe the beach is only an hour away! Excellent snowmaking facilities ensure great conditions for the whole season.
