LOCAL INFORMATION by Visit Cairngorm

We have some great support locally and highly recommend checking out the VisitCairngorm website for all the local information you will need:

  • Places to Stay (full listings of B&B, campsites, bunkhouses etc within Aviemore)
  • Accommodation Enquiry Form
  • What's On BRITS article
  • LIFTPASSES - On popular weekends these tend to sell out in advance, however if you are a competitor we have a special code that can be used to access our event allocation (just pre register and we'll send it to you on monday 27th)
  • FREE TRANSFER BUS - Competitors arriving on-site. Cairngorm Mountain have organised shuttle buses for the Saturday and Sunday and we'd really like you to use them. Buses will leave Aviemore Railway Station at 8am on the Saturday and Sunday. Competitors can be transported back by shuttle buses at c. 4.30pm each day. It’s important that this facility is used as it will not only allow competitors transport from Aviemore to Cairngorm without using their own vehicle, but will ease congestion in the car parks. Plus its less fuel, so more eco friendly!


Location: Winking Owl
20:00 - 20:30: BRITS Competition meeting, to discuss the weekend's competitions inc formats, judging, courses, timings etc..

Studying the procedures and criteria behind judging and then putting these skills into practise is a very complex matter which demands attendance at judging conferences and workshops and takes years of experience to hone, however, in the interest of transparency we are working with our fully qualified Head Judges to create an overview document to inform athletes as to what is rewarded.


All competitors MUST wear a helmet when practicing and competing at the BRITS
No lycra or speed suits, cling film allowed.


[most of this is not relevant for BRITS 2023, but we've kept it here for future events]
Snowboardcross and Skiercross - U16, U18, MASTERS, LEGENDS competing in either Snowboardcross or Skiercross can opt to compete in the OVERALL category but MUST INFORM REGISTRATION upon collection of their Bib.

U12’s are not allowed to forfeit their age group and compete in the Overall. 

IMPORTANT: If the final result is taken on timed runs, then the athlete will be eligible for both their age category (inc U12's) & overall titles regardless of whether they opted out of their age group prior to the competition.

N.B. The Overall category is where the National Champions are crowned and cash prizes awarded.

Slopestyle and Halfpipe - U12,U16,U18, MASTERS & LEGENDS competing in Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Big Air will automatically be placed in both their "Age" category and "OVERALL" category. Making it possible to win both.

Snowboardcross & Skiercross events - riders must notify registration should they wish to participate in the Overall category to gain a chance of becoming the official "British Champion".
