www.skimoscotland.co.uk starts this year. I am booked in for the five races in various ski resorts in Scotland. I am looking to share lifts up from Cheshire to save on fuel. Having never raced before, it would be good for some banter on the way up.

Whilst I'm keen on doing these I'm going to see how the winter shapes up before I commit to signing up!

In reply to lee johnson: Lee - looks like you have some competition for the Glenshee race :)

In reply to di gilbert: Indeed, the Johnsons seem to be taking over. By the way, we are not related! Maybe we should make this a Johnson only race.

In reply to lee johnson: I also know another Johnson that is into racing I would not be surprised if he where to enter. However I have his race skis in Switzerland. However I would be more worried about Carrion!

I'm curious, why is there no Cairngorm race?

In reply to Dave Kerr: We approached all 5 resorts at the very start, wanting to have one race at each of the resorts. At the time, Cairngorm Mountain were less than keen and after numerous attempts to get them onboard we gave up. We then approached the Fort William Festival to see if we could run a 5th event (the Vertical), back over in Nevis Range, in conjunction with the Festival, which they took us up on. Since confirming with Nevis Range a 5th race on the West, communication did restart with Cairngorm about trying to get a race established but, to be honest, it was too late for this season to get organised. We would be delighted to involve Cairngorm Mountain in future seasons :)
