Scottish Schools


Opportunity Inspiration Motivation


Every year the SSSA organises more than 30 schools snowsports events that attract over 2500 primary and secondary pupils from across the country. These events offer fun, inclusive, individual and team participation opportunities for all abilities of skier and snowboarder.

Established in 1971, the Scottish Schools Snowsports Association has a long history supporting the development of Scottish snowsports. Over the decades it has provided many exciting opportunities and created countless school champions. Many of these have been inspired by their early success and enjoyment of schools skiing and gone on to further develop their skills. 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 safe and fun schools snowsports events, and is ultimately INSPIRED and MOTIVATED to go on and engage further in regular snowsports through their school, local club or family, choosing it as one of their sports for life." - Patrick Erdal (Chairman SSSA)
