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.

!! Lions Mini Mayhem 2019 !!

The dates for MM in 2019 will be as below.

We’ve had a bit of a struggle this year fitting them in around a packed indoor race calendar and school/bank holidays; so, apologies there isn’t one in May.

1. 28/04/19
2. 09/06/19
3. 07/07/19
4. 08/09/19
5. 06/10/19
6. 10/11/19

Already, looking forward to another fantastic year of the UK’s biggest internal club race series! 😊

Great session this morning; busy and a little different to the norm. 🙂

Did the participants enjoy the format?

Should we do it again regularly, say on a 4/6 weekly basis?

Any input appreciated.

Thanks Kate

This coming Sunday (10th March) we will be running a special race focused session, with emphasis on the kids training in the course. We will have the timing set up and possibly a ski X cross and dual slalom too.

A great opportunity to put all those half term holiday skills into action and start to build up to the next Mini Mayhem series. On that note, MM 2019 dates will be released in the next week or so.

Parents are welcome to ski the course too, just make sure you have a helmet if you want to take part.

Look forward to seeing you all this Sunday. 😊

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 English Alpine Championships – Bormio 2019 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Some great racing in glorious conditions ☀️ for the English National Champs in Italy last week, with Lions punching above their weight for yet another year!! 💪

Massive congratulations to our National Champions and medal winners.

Josh S (U10 Boys) – 🥇Giant Slalom, 🥈Combi
Izzy N (U12 Girls) – 🥇Combi and Overall Mini Girl, 🥈Giant Slalom
Elliott B (U16 Boys) – 🥇Super G Race 1, 🥈Super G Race 2, 🥈Slalom

A big shout out too for podiums in the Vitalini Speed gun test - Jacob S 1st in U14 Boys, Josh S 2nd in U10 Boys and Izzy N 3rd in U12 Girls – not bad for a bunch of small fry against some much bigger racers! 😉

Well done also to the other Lions who put in some great runs and acquitted themselves admirably – Jake D, Grace B and Oliver R.😊

Finally, ‘Chapeau’ to Izzy N who won the U12 ESF Regional Club GS race in Montgenevre the previous week competing against racers from numerous French and Italian ski racing clubs in the Via Lattea / Serre Chevalier area.

Most of these kids learnt to ski at Lions, they have all competed in Mini Mayhem and they have all race trained at Lions …… they are great examples of what can be achieved through hard work and perseverance, and the effort of our volunteers, even in a fridge! 😉

Lions Ski Club is very proud of all of you!! 😁

More Lions International representation and success!! 🙂

Fantastic result for Elliott Bennett - Alpine Skier (Lions and Kandahar) at the TROFEU BORRUFA in Andorra (one of the top international children's races). Leading after the 1st run, he eventually walked away with silver, just 0.22s away from Gold over the two runs in the slalom. Great result for a Brit, never mind a Lion, and hopefully more to come later in the week as he goes into the speed events and combined where he has historically been at his strongest.

Best of luck Elliott from all at Lions …. smash it!!Boom! 🇬🇧 Elliott takes 2nd Place today in the Slalom representing GBR in Andorra 👊🏼 Great skiing on the 1st run skiing from bib 33 into the lead 🤙🏼 Keep it up Bean Pole!!
Nice to be on the podium with another Brit and good mate Ted Slade.

Well, what a fantastic morning we had at Snozone Castleford today for the Lions Christmas session and party!

Santa was there 🎅, great to see lots of parents on the slope (especially getting their butts kicked by their kids in the dual slalom course 😉), lots of smiles 😊 and some fabulous achievements recognised at the prize giving. 🏆

A massive well done to all our Mini Mayhem winners 🏅 and to all those who took part in 2018; keep working hard and you too may be on the podium in 2019. Parents, we’d love to see more of you on the slope on a regular basis, we wouldn’t want to see your kids leaving you in their snow dust! 😬

Great work too from those receiving special recognition. We have, literally, hundreds of individuals involved in Lions sessions within any calendar year, so to be recognised with an award is of special significance …. well done to all of you! 🏆

Massive thanks to the Lowes family, yet again, for the entertainment Omega Photobooths, to the staff at Snozone for the hospitality and to all the Lions volunteers who put on a great show today as they do throughout the year ….. THANKYOU!!

Finally, please note, Lions is on for the next two weeks but there will be no sessions on 23/24 December. We will then be back on 6 January for 2019.

Wishing you all a ‘Very Merry Christmas’ and a ‘Happy New Year’.
