Ski Leaders

Ski Leaders for the coming season 2019 - 2020

During the ski season the DHO Wengen Manager has the help of a number of Ski Leaders, these kind souls give up a couple of weeks of their time to the DHO for which we are all very grateful.

The role of DHO Ski Leaders

All of our ski leaders are very familiar with all of the slopes around Wengen, they help out the DHO Wengen Manager in a variety of ways. The most important of these is acting as a ski leader, the next most important is as a race assistant, of course they also represent the club within Wengen and the surrounding area.

Ski Leading

With both the Wengen Manager and a Ski Leader, the DHO is able to offer it’s members a variety of led skiing options, during busy times or when there is a significant difference in what sort of skiing members want to do, we offer two skiing groups each day, thus one group may head off for an off piste day whilst the other has a more leisurely time on piste. Sometimes we find that we have enough members to need two groups in which case whilst covering the same general area we may split the members into those who wish to go fast and those who don’t, often meeting up at a restaurant for lunch.

Race Assistant

Every Thursday during the Ski Season and occasionally on other days the DHO organises a number of Ski Races, the Ski Leader typically assists the Wengen Manager with the setup and running of these races, but since such races are typically in the morning they may be available to ski with after the race.

Want to be a Ski Leader for the DHO ?

We are always looking for potential new ski leaders, if you think you might be up for the role please contact the DHO Wengen Manager for further information.
