News and Upcoming Events!
We are extremely proud of Millie Knight & Brett Wild in all that they have achieved in Pyeongchang, winning 2 silver medals! Millie is an inspiration to many people, and Brett, our own home grown racer, plays a very important part in preparing Millie for her competitions. Brett learned to ski at the Club with his brother Matt when their dad Oscar became the manager at Glasgow Ski Centre, nearly 20 years ago.
When you next visit the centre look out for Millie & Brett’s 4 gold medals from the IPC Alpine Skiing World Cup 2017, which are on display in the foyer.
