Both on and off the slopes KUS aim to deliver the best experiences for its members. Our enthusiastic committee is always thriving to make things bigger and better. We are known for hosting some of the best socials about, with an array of themes and activities to ensure you have a top night and can build connections with everyone in the club. Socials are held on Wednesdays, as this is the AU night out, and if you’re not a big drinker there are plenty of non-alcoholic events in place all year. From union nights, slope side antics, to trampolining – KUS provides the party all year long.
Of course, we are far more than a social club. We have an established race team, with freestyle being developed. Any members who are interested in competing will be taken around the country to take part in competitions against other universities. Events like BUDS and KINGS are fantastic places for members to show us what they’ve got…as well as being an excuse to leave the Keele bubble and party.
With one of the best UK dryslopes only a few minutes drive away, we provide lesson, recreational and race sessions all year at a very reasonable price. We also make fortnightly trips to the Manchester snowdome so everyone can get their mitts on the pow all year long. Whatever your snowsport appetite, we can satisfy!
The highlight of the year is always our annual tour.
During the Christmas holidays, we ship a coach load of the most avid snowsports lovers out to the mountains. There, we create chaos on the mountains, après bars and dance floors. This is the single best trip on offer at Keele. Expect to leave our trips with some of the fondest memories and friendships you’ll make during university. This is not one to miss!!
Whether you’ve skied for years, or never touched snow in your life, join KUS and prepare to hit the slopes!
