/ Ski clubs
Problem we have is I don't know of any ski clubs that accommodate for racing. As we live in Kent we do seem to be restricted
Any thoughts would be helpfull cheers
I don't think there is any other way than to go abroad to one of the skiing countries, e.g., France, Switzerland, Austria or the US. That is going to be very pricey for the odd week here and the odd week there. If he could go for an entire season, he would be able to get season passes (which are vastly better value) and become properly imbedded in a ski racing school. These are generally run to a very strict regimen that makes it quite hard to drop in and out. Has the British Ski Association (or whatever it is called) any useful advice?
Chatham or Aldershot look like your best bet
Racing in the UK's obviously a bit limited but it still makes a really solid base for your technique which transfers to other aspects of skiing, and it's pretty competitive too.
