We are looking for people to take over the running of the website.  We need K members who are tech savvy and good on social media.  The website is on a joomla platform so prior knowledge would be helpful but not entirely necessary.  Additionally, the Club wants to expand and deepen its social media base so expertise in that area would be an asset.  This may appeal to an individual or a team who could work as a virtual group.  Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Kandahar Racing Adult Training - 7-14 December

Like the very successful training last year, this takes place again in Gol, Norway.

The training programme will include technique, skills, drills, SL gates, GS gates, electronic timing and race simulation. Fitness training, video analysis, WC video analysis and ski prep guidance will also be included off the hill. The programme caters for those mainly interested in combining a social experience alongside some race training, all the way through to those with aspirations of achieving success at the Inferno, AICC, FIS Masters, Military or Eurotest competitions. Groups and training courses will be split between those at a higher level and those simply attending for a more leisurely introductory experience! We'll have the whole mountain to ourselves and so will have as much space as we could possibly need.  The coaching team will be Mike Barker, Ed Drake & Eilidh McLeod.

Participants may join the programme as inliers or outliers and there are two camps: a long camp and a short camp.  Please click here to see more and to book.
