Our provisional winter calendar can be found here Items in red or highlighted need to be finalised. This version is as of 25/10/19. I still need dates for the British champs in Ruhpolding and the date for the End of Season Mountain Tour will be weather dependent – here’s hoping it ends up being late in April

This season snow factory technology will be trialled at several downhill centres this winter (Lecht, Glencoe, Cairngorm). BSS & SSS are involved with the Lecht trial where ~500m of x/c trail will be put in place. The flier from BSS gives an idea of what is going on. The club will be involved in the cross-country element of the project & organising things over the weekend 17/18 Feb 2018
