Important Notice. Snow Season Sign Up Form.

Since the last committee meeting the club have decided to trial a new system for signing up to training.  This system, which we hope will be more flexible, allows you to sign up and pay in advance for the weeks you know you can make. This allows you the ability to not have to pay for pre-determined days that you can't make due to holidays or other planned activities. Payment for the whole season will still be required up front.

Snow Training Spring 2016

As we prepare for our final Xmas session at Alford and the dry slope season comes to a close it is time for thoughts to turn to the Lecht and the snow training.  We had a committee meeting after training last week to iron out the final details.

Club Kit for Christmas

We have received the following message from the Rugby Plus Team in Aberdeen:-

Just a quick note to ask if you could let your club members know that if they require any of the Club logo’d items from the Club Page at, then they would need to place order by end of this weekend. This should ensure Christmas delivery - especially if they want the item posted to them.

Training Times, Sunday 6th December

Some new faces at the top of the leader-board today, King of The Hill title goes to Andrew Simpson with the fastest time of the day at 6.43, beating all the coaches, despite what Head Coach Gary would have you believe!  Close behind, and leading the coaches, none other than James Paxton in 6.54 just pipping Jamie at 6.68.

One other stand out performance was Jack Morrison, his 7.15 clearly proving that his promotion to Performance Squad 1 was well deserved.

Clash of The Titans, Head Coach's Report

Everyone loves race day.

Alford Ski Slope had a louder buzz than the Men's World Cup GS at Beaver Creek this weekend. Marcel Hirscher may have turned the snow to steam, but I'm sure I saw sparks fly from the mat today from some of the racers.

Gordon Skiers welcomed Aberdeen Snowsports Club to our mat today for the hottest ski competition the North of Scotland has seen in decades.

Clash of The Titans!

Gordon Skiers are welcoming ASC to the Alpine resort of Alford this Sunday.

Ten members of Aberdeen's finest will join us this weekend for some coaching sessions, followed by a fun team race, between the clubs. We will have our usual mixed teams so everyone will get a chance to race for the bragging rights of being Grampian's finest.

The North East doesn't have many ski clubs, so this is a great opportunity to ski with some like minded friends and keep the racing spirit going.

See You All Sunday, GW

Last Reminder

Can we also remind everyone to complete the form for the Christmas dinner ASAP, it is only just over a week away and we need to get the numbers to alford Golf Club.  It is a fun event and an integral part of our Christmas celebrations.  Please bring the whole family.
