We are Cambridge Snowsports

The Cambridge Ski team began in 1921. 

Four years before the first Winter Olympics, CUSSC took part in the oldest skiing race in history. Almost a century later we have grown into a welcoming and professional sporting outfit. The club aims to introduce students to racing and competes in all major student competitions, most notably the Varsity races, which drew a crowd of over 1000 spectators last year. As well as a preseason trip, we also run weekly freestyle and race training sessions for all levels from experts to those that just want to try something different (many have never competed before arriving at uni).

We're proud to represent the University of Cambridge in student competitions across the country.

With access to top notch training all year round, CUSSC provides the highest level of support to develop all abilities,

from beginner racers right through to international pros.


Don't be intimidated though! We're all very friendly people so if you want to have a great time, meet a bunch of fun people and get stuck in to uni snow sports, CUSSC is the club for you.


Our club relies on 9 people working hard behind the scenes to ensure everything runs smoothly.

After an underwhelming season, buckle up for CUSSC’s biggest year yet. We’re talking HUGE wins, LAVISH socials and FULL sends. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, ideas or concerns.

CUSSC love, and (as always) GDBO,

George Colville
Vice Race Captain

Hey! This year I’m in charge of all race-related things- from organising our preseason trip to selecting teams, and everything in between! I’m looking to encourage you all to really develop as racers, no matter whether you have had a lot of experience or none at all, and for you to enjoy what racing has to offer. I’m also hoping for us to thrive as a team, support and learn from each other. Let’s keep up CUSSC’s fabulous rep and once again thrash Oxf*rd at Varsity!
Bring on 2020-2021! 

Hiya! I’m George, I’m going to be helping Lara out with all things training- and race-related, from preseason to term-time skiing to the race day itself. Like most CUSSC members, I hadn’t actually done any racing before I came to Cambridge so will be on hand to help anyone no matter their experience levels. We’re going for nothing less than a clean sweep this year so I’m excited to have everyone on board!

Hello everyone! I am Sam and I'm a second year Cancer Biology PhD student at Clare College! Joining CUSSC has been one of the highlights of my time at Cambridge so far, and this year the committee are going to ensure this year is the best yet. As CUSSC secretary, I am in charge of keeping you all up to date with training sessions, social events and competitions that will be happening throughout the course of the year.

Sam Jordan
Social Secretary

Hey, I’m Sam and I am your joint social sec/welfare officer for the 2021/22 season! I’ll be working with Harry to make CUSSC the most sociable and fun club in Cambridge, as well as looking out for the welfare of all club members. Feel free to contact myself or Harry with any questions about skiing, socials, welfare or otherwise

Harry Pataudi
Social Secretary

Hey there! I’m Harry, half of the social/welfare team with Sam for the 2021/22 season. While we are sure to have an explosive season on the slopes, Sam and I are here to make sure it is just as, if not more explosive off the slopes! Alongside this very important role, we are your friendly team for anything welfare related so don’t hesitate to send us a message (hp422@cam.ac.uk & sjj49@cam.ac.uk) with any problems, queries or even just to say hi. Looking forward to welcoming you to the best sports club in Cambridge to ever grace the snow very soon, until then - peace, respect the send, and, above all, GDBO xx

James Hirst

Hi, I’m James and I am one of your freestyle reps along with Nathan. We will be running trips to local snow domes throughout the year to help people learn and practice some tricks. I am a skier and love to see people trying new things in the park even if they fall. I’m often easy to spot on the slopes as I am covered in snow because I have fallen over a dozen times too. If you have any questions about the sessions or freestyle itself don’t hesitate to ask (jh2171@cam.ac.uk).

Nathan Burstow

Hi, I’m Nathan and I’m one of the freestyle captains this year, along with James. Snowboarding is my real passion, whether it’s freestyling at Milton Keynes or off piste on VT. I’m easygoing, so if you have any questions about how to get involved in freestyle or what events will be happening please feel free to drop me a message. James and I are happy to help, and keen to get as many as you involved with the most fun part of snowsports!
