Bormio Italy 9th – 17th February 2O23
The dates are set so get them in your diary now!
In building our race programme we try to take your feedback into account when planning this ever-popular competition, but it just isn’t possible to come up with an answer that will please everyone. Someone will always have to race first, and with so much to fit in there may be times when you find yourself spread a little thin, but our overall aim is always to be as open and inclusive as possible so that everyone can get the most out of what may for some be their only on-snow competition in the season.
In the FIS competition this year we are starting early, with two Giant Slalom races on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th, which will help us to reduce the pressure on teams – and organisers!
For the U14 and U16 groups we offer races in both technical disciplines (Slalom and Giant Slalom) plus the opportunity to race Super-G on the world famous Stelvio piste. These races will be split by age group, allowing us to tailor the course setting to provide the right level of challenge for each group.
For our youngest age groups we are again offering three U10/12 races encompassing Giant Slalom, individual head-to-head parallel (with qualification and knockout stages) and a stubby Slalom race.

Race Entry & Criteria

Open for entries – January 2023
Official closing date – 5th February 2023 (for GBR entries)
- British competitors in age groups U14 and above must be registered with their Home Nation.
- Competitors in the U10/U12 races must have either signed the British Athlete’s Declaration or be registered with their Home Nation.
- All U18, U21, Senior and Masters racers are reminded that they must be registered with FIS as an Alpine competitor to take part in these championships (please note that a FIS Masters registration is not the same as a FIS Alpine registration). Applications for the appropriate licence should be made direct to GB Snowsport as soon as possible and at least three weeks prior to the closing date shown above. The Organising Committee accepts no responsibility for any failure of competitors to ensure that their FIS registration is valid.
- All competitors must have a current insurance policy that permits them to ski race. The Organising Committee may require proof of insurance such as a valid governing body race licence or an independent certificate of insurance. The Organising Committee reserves the right to refuse entry to skiers who do not possess seed points and who cannot demonstrate a minimum level of competence. Suitable evidence may include previous race results or a Coach’s certification.
- All British entries must be made via the official online entry system, or if necessary, using the official entry form (one per competitor). Entries will only be accepted if accompanied by the correct race entry fee.
- Those entering the BASS seeded races (U14/U16) must ensure that their HN registration is renewed well before the publication of the BASS seed lists that we will be using for the competition, otherwise they will be drawn in the group with ‘no points’ at the end of the start list. See GBSKI.com for details of the rule change that applies (rule 621.2).
- Depending on the number of entries from British competitors, we may allow a small number of non-British entries into the Children’s competition (U10, U12, U14 or U16). Please contact the race secretary for more information if you fall into this category and wish to enter. Note that we may not be able to give you a decision on accepting your entry straight away. If we do accept your application then you will need to enter using the standard entry form which you can find on the last page of the Invitation Bulletin.
- Non-British (international) FIS entries should be made through your National Ski Association on the appropriate NSA FIS entry forms in accordance with FIS regulations. FIS quotas will be enforced.
