GU Ski & Snowboard Club

Glasgow University
Ski & Snowboard Club

Do you love to ski, snowboard, or socialise? Then Glasgow University Ski & Snowboard Club (GUSSC) is the club for you – whether you've never seen snow before, are looking to smoke national competitions, or are just interested In Glasgow's best student nights out.


GUSSC has three competitive teams – race, freestyle ski, and freestyle snowboard. The club boasts national success across the British Universities Snowsports circuit. The main competitions are SUDS and BUDS where GUSSC has historically dominated. However, we are always on the lookout for fresh talent. We host weekly training sessions so go ahead and try out for the team!

Our trials are in September – post freshers' week craze, don't miss it!


If competition isn't for you, we organise lessons for complete beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. We hit the indoor Snowdome at Braehead throughout the year, to ski, board and party with other Scottish Unis. We also run lessons at the dry slope at Bellahouston Park. As soon as the snow starts falling we run trips North to the Highland ski areas, where GUSSC members can enjoy the Scottish Alps for what they have to offer. Check out our Instagram for all updates on lessons, training, and socials.

GUSSC hosts the legendary annual ski trip to the Alps in January, open to all members. The ski trip is the best week of the uni calendar so become a member and join us in the Alps! You won’t regret it.

Joining & Social

GUSSC is fundamentally a social club – hosting club nights and large socials across campus. With over 700 members every year, we host the biggest socials at the Uni. Our infamous Cheese & Wine social in October dominates the social calendar where members flood the GUU for the ski trip release and sign up. Become a member for entry to Cheese & Wine.
