Pendle Summer Race Camp

Please see details below of summer race camp being held at Pendle

Hi All

It’s that time of year again to share information about yet another Pendle Summer Race Camp. Believe it or not, it is now 10 years since Jo and I began running our summer camps at, firstly Rossendale and, more latterly, Pendle (!!)

The camp will be following the usual format and run in the same way as always, following our tried and tested formula, but full details can be found below and attached.

Please feel free to get in touch if you’d like to discuss further,


Benn Hall




13-17th August 2018

Pendle Ski Club

£220 for the week

£55 per day

Please feel free to circulate this email/flyer around any friends/colleagues/club members that you think it might be of interest to.

Hopefully this will be of interest again to those who have attended past camps, and indeed to any new racers (or new to the Pendle Summer Camp!) out there who would like to get involved in a 5-day summer ski race camp that brings a mixture of training and fun skiing activities in the middle of August. Any young skier – whether a seasoned racer to perhaps a first-time racer or Saturday club skier – is more than welcome. We always have a range of abilities and a range of ages amongst attendees. But if you have any questions about the suitability of the camp for your child, please do just get in touch.

If you are interested in booking on, please send an email to Benn Hall ( to confirm your place. We would also be grateful if you could complete and return the attached booking form and medical form. These can be returned either by post or email (they can be completed electronically if easier). Payment can be made by BACs or cheque/cash.

And, of course, if you have any questions about the camp, please do not hesitate to get in contact either by email or phone (details below).

As always, we look forward to seeing both familiar and new faces alike, and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in August.

Feel free to keep me in the loop so I have an idea of who is attending.

The format will be two individual timed runs through a slalom course to determine how you stand within your age group on the day. You’d then be placed into groups of four according to your quickest timed run for the second session of the day, dual slalom head to head races – very exciting and great fun!

The event is open to all ages and abilities, they’re fun, they’re not pressured and you’d be amongst friends.

The race format is the same as Stokes but you will need to register through me rather than directly with the club.

Club Captain Nominations

Dear Sharks,

Our male Club Captain, Oscar Bandmann, will be stepping down from his role of Club Captain at the upcoming AGM, and we are looking for someone to replace him.

The Club Captains sit on the Sharks Ski Club Committee to represent the views of our younger members. They also arrange fun social events, and competitions, throughout the year.

If anyone is interested in becoming the new Club Captain, to work alongside Grace, who is staying on for another year in her role as our female CLub Captain, then please send me your nominations.

We will then organise a vote, and announce the winner at the AGM.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Flight and Transfer Information Update


The easyJet flights from Manchester to Geneva on Saturday 16th February, returning Saturday 23rd February, are now released. BUT – they are extremely expensive – ie £700 return trip per person. Please remember this is national half term week…!!
We have looked at other options, and Manchester to Basel is cheaper – ie Saturday £325, Friday and Sunday are even cheaper. There is only 1 flight on each day.
Consequently, it appears that people are looking at alternative flight and travel, therefore at this stage I am unable to say that we can organise transfers for you. Please remember that the price DID NOT include transfer. We did originally think that if we all arrived at Geneva at the same time, we would organise a coach, but the cost of the coach would have been divided amongst us all.
All I can advise at this moment, is – please let me know when you have booked your flight and to which airport. I can then co-ordinate groups and advise or help arrange pickups for you If there is only a few of you at an airport, then it may well be cheaper for you to catch the train.
The trains run direct from Geneva and Basel airports, to Lauterbrunnen (your destination). If you need any advice on train travel, then please contact me and I will put you in touch with the Halls who are very experienced in travelling by train from both Geneva and Basel.
I am also advised that self-drive is approximately £600 for tunnel and road charges.
Thank you,
Molly, on behalf of the holiday committee.
