Tudor Skiers at British Schoolgirls' Races

Skiing Outdoor Learning

Once again Tudor sent a team to represent the school in this fabulous ski racing event at Flaine, which this year was celebrating its 60th anniversary.   The girls had two days of hard training before the races began on Monday, and despite some challenging conditions over the two race days every girl in the team was able to race either the Slalom or Giant Slalom. There were 38 schools competing in the races with 153 starters in each race. The girls compete in age ranked categories and we were especially proud of our captain Maria (Year 11) who ranked 12th in her age group for the combined competition. It was also a great event for our development skiers and we look forward to welcoming more next year with the appointment of our B Team Captain Harriet (Year 10).  Our other two skiers, Saskia (Year 12) and Rosamund (Year 11) skied very well in the Giant Slalom and Slalom respectively and clearly all the training in the first few days paid off as not one girl skied out.  Unfortunately due to injury we were not able to travel with our full complement of ski racers this year, but the girls who were able to attend certainly put their best effort in and represented the school brilliantly. 


We look forward to another successful trip to Flaine next year and are keen to welcome new girls into the team. We will be attending a competition at the Milton Keynes Snozone on Sunday 15th September and would welcome interest from any skier over the age of 12 who would like to have a go at ski racing! (No previous experience is required). For further details contact Mrs Wells.
