About the Club

SKUM is a club for everyone. We have multiple race and freestyle teams in both Ski and Snowboard, as well as Ladies teams.

We train either every week or every two weeks, on both snow (Chill Factore indoor slope in Manchester) and dry slope (Rossendale Ski Centre).

With over 800 members last year we are one of Manchester’s largest, and are always on the look out for new snowsports enthusiasts, whether you have raced (or even skied) or not!

Club Philosophy

SKUM work hard and play harder. Whilst running incredibly successful ski and snowboard teams in both race and freestyle, we are also far more than solely a ski club!

We run two amazing holidays a year, taking over 250 SKUMmers on a holiday of a lifetime. SKUM has its own merchandise range that is instantly recognizable around Uni.

For beginners, we offer discounted lessons at Chill Factore, and take you over there ourselves on minibuses. We run a full social schedule, having socials roughly once a week, which are legendary around Manchester!

All that in Manchester’s biggest and best society!

Events History

Biweekly training, usually on Wednesdays on either snow (Chill Factore in Manchester) or dryslope (Rossendale ski slope).
