GBX employs elite snowboard coaches who specialise in all aspects of snowboarding with a focus on snowboard cross. Our current coaching staff (2 British Olympic coaches, 1 British Olympic athlete/coach, 1 European Cup and 1 Fis coach) have lead the development of Snowboard Cross in Great Britain for over 10 years – GBX has 7 World Cup medals including gold, multi European Cup and Fis competition wins and GB’s only Snowboard Cross athlete to compete at the Winter Olympics, not just once – but on four occasions leading the GBX program. No other club, home Nation or indeed GB Snowsport – the national governing body in Great Britain have the coaches, experience, athletes, expertise or Olympic and World Cup results that GBX firmly has under its belt.
We encourage snowboarders of all levels to try snowboard cross. We will not just develop you as a specialist snowboard cross athlete but as an all mountain snowboarder.
Ultimately we would like you to fulfil your potential as a snowboard cross athlete and represent your country at the highest level possible.
No. No previous snowboarding experience is necessary; we provide training all the way from entry level up to International competition.
Absolutely. The team trains hard and as such its athletes need to relax and chill out… As a team of athletes you will eat, sleep, train and hang out together during this six month period…. Close bonds will be formed and you will find friends for life. We have a lot of powder days during the season!!
No! We focus on skills and potential rather than age. GB’s current no 1 Snowboard Cross athlete who to date has attended 4 Winter Olympic Games representing Great Britain as well as winning over 7 World Cup medals including gold, multi European Cup, Fis and National titles is 33yrs old – Zoe is one of the founders of GBX and knows that in snowboard cross experience is by far the most important factor over age! However, if you are still in doubt, please contact us for further information.
Over the past 15 years we have had a huge range of abilities and ages join the program, all have a passion for snowboarding. Some have gone on to represent their country at the Olympics, all have represented their country at international competions with us and everyone has had a fantastic experience and massively progressed as snowboarders.
If you have basic snowboard skills why go and become a seasonaire in resort when you can join the GBX academy and train and travel throughout Europe with like minded snowboarders for 6 months of the year representing your country at International competitions with the possibility of going to the Olympics?
