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.

Do I have to of competed in snowboarding before I join?

No. No previous snowboarding experience is necessary; we provide training all the way from entry level up to International competition.

Do you get time to hang out and enjoy yourselves?

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!!

Whichever program an athlete is on, we take a two week break at Christmas and one week for the February half term.

Am I too young or too old to join the program?

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.

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.
