We currently have 3 sessions per week, on Wednesday and Friday evenings and Sunday mornings. Please see the Roller Ski page for more information and contact details. As each session is subject to change, it is essential that you let us know in advance if coming for the first time.
Enough snow fell last week to enable club members to get out and about on skis. Trips were made to Dalby Forest and some members even skied around their own neighbourhoods. As the usual roller ski lessons were cancelled, we took the opportunity to practise some drills at Temple Newsam in Leeds using club skis.

10 club members recently enjoyed a week of skiing in the beautiful Rondane National Park. Go to the Gallery page for more photos.
Its been a wet and windy weekend up in the Ribble Valley but we remained in high spirits as we battled the gales and bog hopped our way across Plover Hill towards the summit of Pen-y-gent. We took the decision to descend before the final push as visibility was poor and winds were getting stronger and stronger. Others took themselves off to explore Hawes, Sedbergh and Dent. Dave and Glenda’s excellent catering revived us all back at the lodge. Another great weekend – the 25th visit to Gearstones Lodge by the YDCCSC.

Despite cold and grey weather, we have seen good numbers of roller skiers on the track since Christmas. All have benefitted from the expert tuition of Martin, Martin and Richard and progress has been made in both classic and skate technique. Frosty conditions on a couple of sessions have meant that those who normally skate have tried classic roller skis. Practising both styles does improve overall technique, so every drill counts.
And on Sunday the track at York Sports Village saw high numbers concentrating on their skate and classic skills. Here are just a few…..
On Saturday 11 of us set out on a beautiful walk from Robin Hoods Bay to Ravenscar to see the seal colony. More photos on the Gallery Page.
Today we had a visit from a scout group from Bridlington. Children and leaders enjoyed a morning of drills and games put on by Martin Roscoe, supported by Richard Smith.
Current membership figures reveal that we now have 64 club members. Its good to see that many of the adults who have participated in the 6 week Go Roller Ski courses at the York Sports Village have followed through and joined the club.
