Full Speed into the Winter Season of the University Sports Center


The great Snow Event of the University Sports Center on October 30, proved again to be very popular. The event, which was organized by the RWTH Aachen University Sports Center (HSZ) and took place in the SnowWorld, symbolized and celebrated the start of the winter season and was attended by around 400 snow sport fans.


Last Tuesday, the Ski Hall in Landgraaf was taken over by Aachen’s snow sport fanatics: With the HSZ Shuttle-Bus or their own cars, countless students and employees of Aachen’s universities, excited for the winter sport evening, made their way to Landgraaf. What’s special about it: The event brings together members of fields and disciplines and is equally fun for all.

Next to lessons and training, fun on the piste and at the Après-Ski-Party are central to the event. So that everybody who has never had the chance to try out winter sport could have a go, the SNOWsport Team offered various beginner courses and workshops. The snow sport newbies were thereby prepared for the piste and could put their newly acquired skills and techniques to the test. Experienced and bold athletes could exchange tricks and techniques and show others what they were made of. At the joint Après-Ski celebrations, everybody came together in the hall’s own ski hütten and celebrate the end of the day.

And if that isn’t enough: The next great event is at the door: The Euregional equivalent to the Snow Event Landgraaf will take place on November 27. Here, participants will also be able to go on their first runs down the piste or improve their existing abilities. Fun and Après-Ski excitement are, of course, provided for! Sign up has been open since October 31 2018.
