2017 Results

We can hardly believe the Independent Schools Ski and Snowboard Championships are over for another year! We have had an absolutely brilliant week of racing, both in challenging snowy conditions and under bluebird skies, with students and teachers contributing to an amazing atmosphere both on and off the hill.

Yesterday’s parallel slalom races were followed by our prize-giving ceremony that traditionally closes the week. Some sweet prizes were dished out thanks to our sponsors – MPI Brokers, Planks, SkiBartlett, Sungod and Mojo.

This year’s event has been brilliantly captured by the talented Jack Tompkins of Kingdom Visual. His ISSSC edits and photos have been all over our social channels this week – huge props to Jack for all his hard work and amazing content! View the photos here.

A huge thank you from the ISSSC staff team to schools old and new for their commitment and enthusiasm, which go a long way towards making the ISSSC what it is. Congratulations to ALL students for getting stuck in and creating such an inclusive and supportive atmosphere during the races themselves!

A results breakdown can be found below (for giant slalom and slalom only –  parallel slalom final scores will be posted up as soon as we have them ready!).

We hope that this year’s event will be one to remember for all those that took part – it certainly will be for us. Until next year – farewell from the mountains, and a very merry Christmas!

The 2016 Independent Schools Ski and Snowboard Championships draws to a close

It’s official! The Independent Schools Ski and Snowboard Championships is over for another year and what an incredible event it was to both host and be a part of in its new five day format. We enjoyed amazing skiing conditions for December, with glorious blue sunshine for four out of the five days, and some amazing races. Unfortunately, due to high winds and poor visibility, we had to cancel the parallel slalom this year, but the event ended on a high with the prize-packed gala ceremony, thanks to event sponsors, MPI Brokers and Planks Clothing.

Congratulations to the joint winners of the 2016 event – Hurst College reclaimed their Giant Slalom crown, with Wycombe Abbey girls team beating the boys to the Senior Slalom team award, and the Guildford High Girls managed the same feat in the Junior category, whilst Whitgift took home the trophy for junior team boys in the GS.

Hurst College and Wycombe Abbey Girls School shared the Overall team prize, with the Charterhouse team coming not far behind!

Individually the competition was dominated by Oliver Baillie in the Senior boys division who won both Giant Slalom and Individual Slalom, and Madeleine Points who managed the same feat in the Girls Senior category. In the Juniors Max Fairfull from Charterhouse won the boys Giant Slalom, and Jim Mather from Kings Wimbledon won the individual slalom. Lydia McKimm of Wycombe was the fastest U13 racer, but as she was representing a Senior team the overall Junior Winner was Livi Hosking from Guildford high. Annabel Stock of Guildford High won the respective slalom event.

We’re so pleased that the event continues to grow every year and would like to say a big thank you to all 182 competitors, with special mentions to those schools which keep coming back, as well as to all those new faces. We know how much effort goes into organising a school trip and hope that everyone had fun both on and off the slopes. We hope that the champs continue to grow, and plan to keep it in the same spirit.

Until next year!

2015 Event Overview

This season may have had a bit of a rocky start with the the snow Gods deciding to wait until the peak New Year week was done and dusted before sending down blankets of snow for us all to enjoy. This bare start affected both the holiday industry, with people waiting of the first significant snow dump before arranging any travel, and also caused problems for a number of early season ski races which were postponed or simply delayed as a result of poor coverage.

However, there was no such problem for the Independent Schools Ski and Snowboard Championships, which was running for the 10th consecutive season from the snow sure Les Deux Alpes. The event saw over 200 pupils aged 6 – 18, from 15 seperate schools battle it out on the famous Les Deux Alpes glacier in slalom, giant slalom, and team parallel slalom.

Organised and hosted by ski and snowboard course organisation Ticket to Ride (www.tickettoridegroup.com/ski), the event is run and sold as a fully inclusive 5 night package, and begins with two days of ski coaching from ESF Instructors (with the option to get more specialist race training coaching from Impulse), and then two days of championships, concluded with a gala supper and extensive prize giving ceremony, rewarding both individuals and teams alike.

The event is not part of the Britski calendar (hence it’s Independent status) and as such attracts a broad range of skiing abilities, and is well known for it’s open mindedness and appeal to first time racers.

Running from 11th – 16th December the race was held in beautiful spring like conditions, with blue skies, and great visibility leading to a very enjoyable event for the schools, pupils, parents and teachers. The event was attended by Uppingham, Charterhouse, Kings College Wimbledon, Bedes College, Burgess Hill, Churchers College, Claremont School, Hurst College, Lancing College, Whitgift, Steyning Grammar, Albyn School, Wycombe Abbey and even a mixed team of young Dubai racers from a selection of British Middle Eastern Schools.

Hurst College have had the run of the mill for the past 4 years benefiting from the impressive Sam Todd-Saunders at the helm, who clean swept the slalom, and giant slalom for 4 years straight. He has now left, and in doing so left the door open for the next challenger to claim the throne. Charlie Luke (Steyning Grammar) and Piers Bellman (Whitgift) where the stand out skiers in the mens division, and came first and second in the Giant Slalom, ably followed by an impressive Oliver Bailie from Albyn. The two were unable to continue this form into the individual slalom however, with both stumbling on the final gate on their first run, and Nick France from Bedes College capitalised on the opportunity with some tidy skiing to claim the top spot on the slalom podium, closely followed by Oliver Bailie, and Hugo Mooney (Hurst).

In the girls division Helen Todd-Saunders carried on with the fine reputation her brother had created, and was unassailable in all of the Girls divisions claiming both the Giant and Individual Slalom slots. She was followed by Alisha Jani and Maddy Points in the Giant Slalom (both Wycombe), and Maddy Points and Samantha Worthington (Lancing) in the individual slalom.

Due to increased volume this year also saw the first running of a specialised Junior event, with a separate Slalom course, and the early runnning on the Giant Slalom. Josh Dawes from Whitgift won the Junior Giant Slalom, and was closely followed by Oliver Morgan (Team Dubai) and Jim Mathers (Kings College Wimbledon). The young Dubai racers deserve special mention for their performance in the Junior Slalom, with Oscar Morgan and Ben Sheriff claiming gold and silver (Kit Bellman from Whitgift claimed bronze), demonstrating what a strong breeding ground Ski Dubai is proving to be.

On the team side Whitgift managed to take Hurst College’s crown, and claimed the team Giant Slalom Gold. They have developed hugely as a race unit over the past few years of the event and it was just reward for all the racers and all the hard work they have put in. Hurst did however re-claim their title in the Individual Slalom, made even more impressive by the numbers of girls in their first team, again proving that the technical slalom does open up the ball park much more.

The team parallel slalom is always the highlight, a raw playground style head to head battle that enthrals both racers and spectators year in year out, and this year was no exception. We were all witness to an highly efficient Kings College Wimbledon clean up in the Juniors, and were fortunate enough to witness some great battles in the Seniors as well, with the Hurst C team progressing to the sim-finals and almost causing the upset of knocking out the Hurst A Team. A young Kings College Wimbledon Senior team where highly capable and were likely finalists. They were up against an older and more experienced Hurst A team who were sure favourites. It was an enthralling final going right down to the final racer (of the 6), with Fred Mathers against Helen Todd-Saudners, but the enthusiastic young KCW skipper could not do enough to beat here, with Helen, as cool as ever, bouncing down the course unfazed to make sure that Hurst re-claimed their title.

The event was fortunate enough to have a great line of sponsors in the form of MPI Insurance Brokers, Armada Skis, Planks, and Ticket to Ride, who provided a stream of excellent prizes for all the young racers to take him in addition to their medals and trophies.

2014 Results and Overview

Kings College Wimbledon took the honours in the Junior Boys, and Wycombe Abbey the Junior Girls.

Held over four days, the Championships starts with two days of warm up training with ESF Instructors around the slopes of Les Deux Alpes followed by two days of races on the glacier with over 180 pupils competing in Giant Slalom, Slalom and Parallel Slalom disciplines. Teams were entered from Hurst College, Lancing College, Kings College Wimbledon, Whitgift School, Uppingham, Clifton High School, Churchers College, Albyn School, Blundell’s, Bede’s, Steyning Grammar and Wycombe Abbey. The race contained a range of experience with some pupils ski racing for the first time, and other pupils seeing the event as the start of a busy 2014/15 racing calendar.

“Despite the relative lack of snow in the Alps currently, the glacier in Les Deux Alpes presented perfect racing conditions with glorious blue skies, making it pretty much ideal for all the competitors and the high number of supporters. This year was the largest event we have run and it was great to see it well attended by a high number of returning schools, and a good number of new schools coming for the first time.”
The Boys Seniors event was once again dominated by Sam Todd-Saunders from Hurst College, claiming the Gold in both individual events for the fourth consecutive year, hot on his heels in the GS was Charlie Luke for Steyning, and Nick France from Bede’s in the individual slalom. Sam’s younger sister Helen Todd-Saunders won the girls individual slalom, with Bella Slade from Blundells taking the top spot in the Giant Slalom.

Hurst College claimed gold in the team Giant Slalom and Slalom event, with Blundell’s and Whitgift taking silver and bronze in both the giant slalom and the slalom.

Once again the parallel slalom was the showcase event throwing up a handful of dramas. Run as a head to head team relay, the event creates an amazing atmosphere of friendly yet competitive racing. Whitgift took home the prestigious Junior award, with Hurst claiming the senior prize over Blundell’s in a nail biting best of three final, which required all legs to be run for the Champions to be declared. Blundell’s deserve worthy note for an excellent display of sportsmanship when they were offered the chance of victory through a Hurst disqualification, but instead opted for a re-run of the final leg.

This years event saw Uppingham, Churchers College, Bedes, Albyn and Blundell’s all enter teams in to the event for the first time, all four teams showed great promise with a great mix of both experienced and novice racers . “We have some great holiday skiers, this was most of their first time racing they all relished the competition and the experience of the racing. It’s a great event, and having had this experience we’ll be back next year ready to take home some medals, just you wait! ” commented Nichola Crawford of Albyn School.
The event concluded with a prize giving ceremony with prizes kindly contributed from event organisers Ticket to Ride Ski and Snowboard, and event sponsors Ruroc (providing all the individual golds and silvers with one of their pioneering helmets, and steezy up and coming snow brand Mojo Clothing).

The 2015 event promises to be even bigger with a larger split between Junior and Seniors. Bookings already being taken and the preliminary dates being set as 16th – 21st December 2015.

2013 Results and Overview

The 8th Independent Schools Ski and Snowboard Championships held in Les Deux Alpes has drawn to a close with Hurst College maintaining their dominant position of the event with a clean sweep at the top of the podiums in both the senior male and female events. Kings College Wimbledon took the honours in the Junior Boys, and Wycombe Abbey the Junior Girls.

Held over four days the Championships starts with two days of warm up training with ESF Instructors around the Les Deux Alpes slopes followed by two days of races on the Les Deux Alpes glacier with over 110 pupils competing in Giant Slalom, Slalom and Parallel Slalom disciplines. Teams were entered from Hurst College, Lancing College, Bradfield College, Canford School, Kings College Wimbledon, Whitgift School, Packwood Haugh, Ardingly College and Wycombe Abbey. The race contained a range of experience with some pupils ski racing for the first time, and other pupils seeing the event as the start of a busy 2013/14 racing calendar.

“The glacier presented perfect racing conditions, and fortunately the temperatures were very mild for this time of year, making it pretty much ideal for all the competitors and the high number of supporters. This year was the largest event we have run and it was great to see it well attended by a high number of returning schools, and a good number of new schools coming for the first time. We hope to increase the event next year, and in particular grow the Junior and the Girls Division.”

The Boys Seniors event was once again dominated by Sam Todd-Saunders from Hurst College, claiming the Gold in both individual events for the third consecutive year, hot on his heels in both events were JD Mooney from Hurst in second place and Jamie Butt from Ardingly in third. Sam’s younger sister Helen Todd-Saunders completed the same clean sweep in the Girls Division, with Evie Clutton and Aimee Wickes (both from Wycombe Abbey) taking silver and bronze respectively in both events.

In the Junior division Fred Mather from Kings College Wimbledon and Skye McCullogh from Wycombe Abbey both claimed Gold in the two individual events, with Nick de Boer and Alex de Boer (both from KCS) taking silver and bronze in the Boys Giant Slalom, and the younger Scott Nicholson and Jack Evans from Packwood Haugh taking silver and bronze in the individual Junior Slalom event. In the girls Juniors Giant Slalom Annie Rogers from Wycombe Abbey girls claimed silver, and Catrional Jamieson from Hurst bronze, Charlotte Brown from Wycombe Girls claimed silver and Cecillia Day claimed bronze in the Girls Junior Slalom.

Hurst College claimed silver in the team Giant Slalom and Slalom event, with KCS and Wycombe taking silver and bronze in the Giant Slalom, and an ever improving Whitgift team taking silver knocking KCS down to bronze in the Slalom.

Once again the parallel slalom was the showcase event throwing up a handful of dramas. Run as a head to head team relay the suprise package of the event was Packwood Haugh, a Junior School, reaching the semi finals of the senior competition; a fantastic achievement and bodes well for the future of these racers! Hurst College again took home the Gold Medal, with a plucky Wycombe Abbey girls team taking the silver. Whitgift are worthy of note in this event, their racers improved hugely over the four days and gave the Hurst College team a serious run for their money in the semi-finals. This is Whitgift’s second consecutive year in the event, and they way their racers are developing they should consider themselves serious contenders in the future.

As well as Packwood Haugh, this years event saw Lancing College, Bradfield College and Canford School all enter teams for the first time, all three teams showed great promise and while none returned home with any silverware they should not be underesitamted for future years. “We have some great holiday skiers, this was most of their first time racing they all relished the competition and the experience of the racing. It’s a great event, and having had this experience we’ll be back next year ready to take home some medals, just you wait! ” commented Lancing Housemaster Dr Simon Norris.

The event concluded with a gala supper, and a thorough prize giving ceremony with prizes kindly contributed from event organisers Ticket to Ride Ski and Snowboard, and event sponsors Westbeach, Whitestorm and Remote Clothing.

The 2014 event promises to be even bigger with bookings already being taken and the preliminary dates being set as 12th – 17th December 2014.
