Ski and snowboard

No matter your ability, from absolute Jerry to full-time sender, LivSnow is the place for you to learn, improve or show off your skills on the slopes.

With weekly training sessions, freestyle and racing comps, regular socials and student-run ski trips twice a year, the LivSnow society is the one to join.


For those interested in learning to ski for the first time we arrange beginner lessons in the run-up to both the Christmas and Easter trips. Get in touch to find out more.

We have training sessions every week in term time, most frequently to Stoke Dry Slope for social evenings of racing, freestyle and general skiing/boarding for just £12. We welcome all skiers and snowboarders - the only requirement is that you have to know how to use a button lift. We include transport, equipment and two hours slope use (with as much use of the slalom course and freestyle features as you like)

We encourage as many people to participate in a variety of different competitions we attend in a year. The competitions are a lot of fun and a great way to meet other people with a passion for our sport. Competitions include BUDS, NUCO and the Dome series,

Social events

We believe that the social aspect of a sports club is the most important aspect. We join in with the iconic AU nights with a different theme for each one but in addition, our social secretaries organise a variety of different events including BYOB curry night, Souljam, Christmas party and the Snowball.
