How can I start a School Ski Team?
There are several ways that this can be done, one way is here. Sometimes a school have no teacher with the time or interest to do this and it then falls to enthusiastic parents. Once up and running however, the school are often keen to become involved.
Where can our team train?
Training ca be run year round at various indoor and dry slope facilities within the UK, Landgraaf in the Netherlands (500m long indoor slope) and in the alps. BISS can organise all of this with your team, using qualified, experienced and insured coaches.
