Ski Racing

Ski racing is an exciting, dynamic sport to which Aiglon has unparalleled access through our local resort.

In addition to the standard ski programme, Aiglon offers the opportunity to be part of the Aiglon Ski Race Squad, or even the more elite Alpine Development Squad. Aiglon both competes in and hosts numerous races each season. Each year approximately 60-65 students are part of the Aiglon Race Squad. Ski racing provides the opportunity to compete for Aiglon around Switzerland and Europe at a variety of races.

Aiglon competes in British calendar events, Swiss International Schools races, European international races as well as Swiss club races. Uniquely, Aiglon also hosts multiple ski races per year in the Villars-Gryon-Diablerets resort. This includes FIS races as well as the annual Aiglon Cup event.
