European International Schools Ski Race

15th Annual EISSR Competition - January 2020

Race Dates

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Wengen for the 15th annual EISSR competition. We can't quite compete with the 90th Lauberhorn World Cup race but you do get to launch yourself from the same start hut as the top racers in the world!

Although we have a couple of months to go the mountains are already looking very white, with snow as far down as the village as you can see by viewing some of the webcams. Here's hoping for some excellent race conditions in January.

Thu 23rd January - Team Captains meeting (evening)
Fri 24th January - Slalom (Bumps) and parallel (Figeler)
Sat 25th January - Giant Slalom (Lauberhorn)
Sun 26th January - Super-G (Lauberhorn)

2019 Results

The snow in January 2019 was certainly good, and the weather did enough to show us who is really in charge, but with your help and a dedicated team of helpers and officials we had three days of great racing and lots of happy faces!

Congratulations to all the prize-winners, and a big "thank you" to Colin at SkiSet for his continued support with the prizes.

What is EISSR?

The European International Schools Ski Race is a competition held in Wengen (Switzerland) at the end of January every year, and involves over 150 young skiers from international schools in the region, taking part in Alpine ski racing in a friendly yet professional setup.

Every competitor gets the chance to follow in the tracks of the worlds greatest skiers, finding out what it feels like to launch themself from the start hut at the top of the Lauberhorn - arguably one of the top race pistes on the FIS World Cup circuit.

If you want a taste of what it's like, why not follow the FIS World Cup which takes place two weeks before our competition? Our racers probably won't be going quite that fast and the crowds are a little smaller, but it will give you some idea of what it's like!
