Competing in their first club national, all 3 family members secured an impressive spot on the winners podium. Brothers James and Jonathan both took home silver  in the Under 14s and Under 16s; beating many  experienced national l racers.

Jason, the father of James and Jonathan, came 3rd place in the Masters category! Jason  is regularly instructing at JNL Bracknell. Every Friday he coaches the Berkshire Race Squad along side Brian Barfoot.

From all of us here we would love to send our biggest congratulations to you all! We are expecting the same, if not better, results next time. No pressure…

This following Friday we will be taking you on a 
virtual trip into the Free Ski world showing you 
how to slide your very first box 50/50. Watch as 
we take you through step by step, remember though 
these are just pointers. If you want to give it
