Opportunity Inspiration Motivation

Every year the SSSA organises more than 30 schools snowsports events across Scotland. Our events attract more than 2500 primary and secondary school pupils to participate in fun, inclusive and accessible competitions for all abilities of skier and snowboarder.

Please use this website find out all about all our events. We look forward to seeing you at one of them.

Established in 1971, the Scottish Schools Snowsports Association has long been appointed by the Governing Body of Snowsports to support the development of Scottish snowsports. Over the decades it has provided many exciting opportunities to Scottish schools and crowned countless school champions. Many of these have been inspired by their success and enjoyment of schools skiing and gone on to engage in snowsports for life. Some have even gone on to represent their country on the world stage.


"The primary objective of the SSSA is to ensure that every pupil in Scotland has the OPPORTUNITY to access inclusive, safe and fun schools snowsports events, and is INSPIRED and MOTIVATED to go on and engage further in regular snowsports activity through school, a local club or with their family, choosing it as one of their sports for life." - Iain Ramsay-Clapham (Chairman SSSA)
