Skiing and Snowboarding
Brumski is the University of Birmingham’s Ski and Snowboard sports team and society. Representing the University’s official snowsports squad and the largest and most active society, we have over 800 members, constantly tearing up the dry slopes of the UK and the pistes of the Alps. We offer weekly race training and freestyle training for a wide variety of abilities and compete in national events.
We compete in dual slalom and individual slalom events in regional and national competitions – on snow and on dry slopes. In terms of freestyle we compete and national events in Edinburgh and Milton Keynes. We have 5 race teams who compete regularly on competitions so, as long as you’re not a complete beginner, we have something for you!
How to get involved
Taster session and/or trial information will be available soon.
Please note that on top of the club fee there is a £16 fee that covers personal accident insurance when training or competing for the University, access to free cross-training sessions such as circuits and yoga, as well as a contribution to the costs of affiliation to various national governing bodies. This fee is only payable once so if you did decide to join a second club then you would not need to pay a second fee.

The Dryslope Championships in early November are held at Hill End in Edinburgh. This is by far the highlight of our competitive calendar. It can almost be described as a snowsports festival and is just as fun to watch as to compete in! Ask any of our committee about this event for more info as places are only available for a limited time!
We compete in two BUCs competitions a year as well as several regional competitions. In all BUCs competitions there is the opportunity to compete as an individual and our 1st and 2nd teams compete in duals (only 1st for snowboarders).
