Welcome to Lions Ski Club

Improve Your Skiing

Great Tuition • Great Value • Great Fun

Lions Ski Club is run entirely by volunteers. Members meet to ski on Sunday mornings at SnoZone, Castleford.

We have been instructing and coaching skiers for almost forty years and are proud to have helped so many people learn to ski and develop their skiing skills.

Lion’s racers have gone on to represent the club, their regions and Great Britain in racing to great success. Perhaps more importantly members enjoy skiing together, developing their skills and having fun.

Our qualified instructors and coaches will help you and your family develop your skiing skills regardless of whether you’re just moving on from the basics right through to high level race training.

In addition to the Sunday morning sessions the race team have an additional session on Monday evenings which is open to members by invitation only.

You will shortly receive an email providing an update on our discussions with Snozone. Please take time to read the email and complete the brief questionnaire which will give us an indication of our members appetite to re-commence skiing and help to guide our discussions with Snozone and our planning around any potential return of the Lions sessions. ...

We are getting a large number of messages about returning to "normal" regarding sessions. We are keen to return but there is currently no date. We are liaising with Snozone but they are still finding their feet and need to be comfortable with their new protocols to be able to safely manage third party groups such as Lions. As soon as there is more news it will be posted on here. ... See MoreSee Less

A little bit of news from Snozone for those that haven’t already seen it. As soon as we have any news we will communicate with you all on Facebook. Over the next few days there will be a survey coming out to identify members’ intentions on returning to assist in any planning.We are aware of the Government’s announcement that indoor leisure centres, health & fitness clubs and sporting arenas are now cleared to re-open from July 25th.
Whilst currently reading through the updated restrictions and limitations, we are targeting an opening in early August, but we will make a full announcement in due course via our website and social media channels #yourjourneystartshere

MEMBERS NOTICE.

It is with regret, that following a recent update from the government regarding guidance around COVID-19, that Lions Ski Club sessions running on both Sunday and Monday will stop operating with immediate effect.

This hiatus from the slope will last as long as government guidelines do. Unfortunately, as I’m sure you can understand, we have no further information.

Snozone remains open at the point of writing, and should anyone wish to ski can continue to do so without Lions coaching. Please contact Snozone before planning any trips.
