The English Alpine Championships is the chance for the rising English alpine skiing stars to battle it out against their peers across all the different alpine disciplines and is one of the few chances for all the racers to come together for five days of competition.

It is also confirmed that the Team Parallel Slalom, which was part of the Championships for the first time in 2014, will be back in the programme, running alongside the usual full programme of British and International races.

New for 2015 will be the move of most of the Children’s races to the ‘Adler’ piste in the Oga area of the resort. The Adler piste is a world class piste with easy access, excellent viewing and a good restaurant at the finish area. Transport between the town and the Oga race area will be provided.
