UEA Snow runs weekly dryslope sessions catering for all abilities. The dryslope is in Norwich with committee members arranging taxis with the cost being split by those in attendance (£2). All you need is cash for the sessions, gloves, a long sleeve top or jacket and trousers/salopettes. Please see below for details of each session! For lessons, please click here.
For Monday/Wednesday/Friday open practice you will need to be signed off as a competent rider at the dryslope to attend our sessions, please get in touch with our captains to arrange this.
PLEASE NOTE: TAXIS WILL BE LEAVING AT LEAST 30 MINUTES BEFORE EACH SESSION STARTS!
The format for training this year has been shaken up! Whilst it will still take place at our beloved dry slope over at Norfolk Snowsports Club in Trowse the ski and snowboarding training sessions have been combined to take place on the same day provided there is enough demand. This session is for those signed off and is priced at £9 (excluding taxis but including hire). Exclusive practice for boarders will remain on Monday with skiing on Friday.
For intermediates (completed beginners lessons but not yet signed off), skiing is every Sunday with snowboarding every Thursday evening. Again speak to your relevant captain to remain in the loop.
Your ski captain this year is Indra Drabbe. The ski captain is in charge of organising all our dryslope sessions and ski competitions so if you have any questions at all, or want to book yourself on, please get in touch using the form below or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Here’s some more information on what you can expect from some of the sessions we offer.
Fridays – Race Training & Practice
Every Friday, the club attends the race training sessions run down at the dryslope. These sessions are perfect for intermediates through to experts. The sessions help you to improve your skill at ski racing with qualified coaches giving advice and various training and practice methods. You don’t have to know how to race to come along, and it’s great practice even if you don’t want to race in our competitions!
Mondays – Boarder Open Practice Evening
Each Monday, we head down to the dryslope for some open practice. This gives you the opportunity to practice any skills you want down the slope. Occasionally the kicker is also open so if you wanted to practice freestyle, feel free!
