SSBX Champs - Start Gates

A Sports project Westhill

To raise funds to assist in the purchase of professional and purpose built Ski and Boarder Cross start gates.

Thank You!   We did it.  

Thanks to you guys we have more than raised the money we were looking for.  A huge £2045 was raised.  We have ordered the gates and soon we will be able to think about getting them up the hills for the winter.

We will shortly be contacting everyone to see about your rewards.  In the meantime a HUGE thank you!

Aberdeen Snowsports Club

 Aberdeen Snowsports Club have been running the exciting Scottish Ski and Boarder Cross Championships for the last five years.  It all started in 2010 when the club saw the exciting action at the Vancouver Olympics and decided to put on a Scottish event.  The only Ski & Boarder Cross in the United Kingdom.

Since then our event has grown and this year we saw 140 competitors racing at Glenshee Ski Centre on some of the best natural terrain in Europe.  Natural rollers, jumps and berms make for one of the best courses around.

We are ready to develop and enhance the event.....

 Our start gates have stood us well but they are made from scaffolding and after 5 years are a little tired.  We are looking to crowdfund in order to be able to buy new, purpose built gates that allow the race to develop.  

What's more with proper gates we can leave them on the hill during winter allowing the wider public to get a taste of ski and boarder cross which will generate more interest in the event, the sport and our top racers and riders.

With your help,we want to move from these....

To this....

These gates will cost us approximately 5000 euro's.  We are delighted to say that we have £1500 pledged from Aberdeenshire Council.  This year we asked for feedback from our competitors and you all said how keen you would be to contribute towards the cost of the gates.  We'd like to raise £1500 from crowdsourcing 140 people.  That's only a little under £11 each!

Please help us.
