The Downhill Only ski club or DHO for short, is one of the oldest alpine ski clubs in the world. Founded in Wengen in the Jungfrau Region of the Swiss Bernese Oberland in 1925. The club has its winter base there, and whilst most of its members come from the United Kingdom, it caters for people who have joined from all over the world.
We provide a base in Wengen for our many members, with a representative and skiing guide in the village throughout the skiing season and provide information about the skiing conditions in the Jungfrau Region.

Ski racing must be one of the most exhilarating sports and the trainees cannot get enough of it. They love putting on their bibs and crash helmets, adrenalin rushing around, waiting for the starter’s command – allez, los, go!
Trainees return year after year and keep in touch once they have left. It is not a cheap sport and certainly not for British children who must live and train away from home. Many say that participation in training and racing has changed their lives.

The DHO Schoolboys’ Races started in 1999 to complement the very popular Schoolgirls’ Races, which have been running since 1959. The races were first run in Veysonnaz and have grown every year to the point where they have become just as popular as the girls’ event with over 60 schools represented and 28 school teams competing.
