What is Dussc

Durham University Ski and Snowboard Club (DUSSC), is one of Durham University’s largest clubs with over 300 current members and 1000 alumni.

The society is inclusive and welcoming, enabling all students, regardless of experience, to get involved with snow sports at university, whilst also committing to the development of the club’s talented competitors.

We have a huge presence throughout the University largely due to our famous socials that are organised throughout the year for members from all colleges, degrees and year groups. Furthermore, we are the only sports club/society that offer a social membership if you don’t fancy yourself a competitive skier and just want to join our socials, earn some discounts from ski brands and purchase some of the popular DUSSC stash you will see people wearing around town.

Weekly freestyle and race training sessions cater for all levels, from experts to those that just want to try something new (many of the team had never competed before arriving at university). We compete in all student events; King's and BUDS for a bit of fun, with BUISC being a bit more serious, finishing the season off with an amazing week at BUCS Main Event in the Alps. 

DUSSC is not just about speed and tricks. We’re famous for running some of the biggest and best socials in Durham, as well as events showcasing some of Durham and Newcastle’s best DJ’s in our DUSSC on the Terrace event at The Library (the bar, not the Billy B). We also have biweekly trips to the indoor snowdome at Castleford and Infinite Air for those that need their snow fix. Also, in Easter, DUSSC joins forces with Palatinalps to provide one of the biggest and best weeks on snow you will ever have!
