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.

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’.

Drum Roll please ……………….🥁🥁🥁

The final series results for Mini Mayhem 2018!!!! 🏆🥇🥈🥉

A fabulous effort from all the young skiers at Lions and from the volunteers who make these events happen. Seven races completed with lots of fun and loads of improvement. 🙂

Trophies will be presented at the Christmas Party after the session tomorrow, and a medal for all the kids who raced. And, don't forget that hopefully we'll have a fun dual slalom set up so it's one last chance in 2018 to do some racing …. kids v kids, kids v parents, kids v instructors, kids v Santa - just don't forget your helmet if you want to use the course ….. and fancy dress, silly hats and Christmas jumpers!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow for a fun session and as ever, a great Christmas Party.

Kate 🙂
