GBX Ski Cross and Snowboard Cross Competition Series

The GBX Squad are running a series of competitions across the UK in order for athletes to try out for selection onto the British Ski and Snowboard Cross programmes.

The selection series is aimed at both junior and senior who are looking to join the GBX Squad, go along and train resulting in potentially competing around Europe for Great Britain Ski or Snowboard Cross.

On 15th-16th July Chill Factore, Manchester was delighted to host the 2nd official selection event of 2017/18 season of the GBX Ski and Snowboard Cross selection series. The challenging and exhilarating course was built by Chill Factore's very own Danny Chambers, as well as other members of the GBX Squad.

The July event was a huge success with both junior and senior competitors selected and received feedback from Danny, the Europe Cup and FIS Coach as well as being given the option to join the team. We also welcomed great feedback from both children and their parents.

If you're interested and would like to attend the next competition of this series the age categories are:

  • Under 12 (2 qualifications runs then top 8 to finals) – Year of birth 2007, 2006
