"The CDC adult performance weekend is the perfect environment to improve your on piste skiing ability, boost confidence and learn new skills. The coaching you receive both on and off the hill is first class, up to date and easy to understand. This makes the transition into skiing gates much easier and most importantly enjoyable. 15 seasons in the backcountry and I almost forgot how much fun they are! Thanks Chemmy, Dougie and the CDC team for a excellent season opener."

It was an extremely comprehensive and varied programme blending the technique with the gates and also mixing it up between GS, Super G, parallel slalom and technique/exercises. I know that everyone also found all the video feedback hugely constructive.
Most importantly everyone enjoyed it enormously and there was such a great vibe to the four days.
I will not lie, it took me less than 10 secs to sign up after I saw the email about an adult performance ski camp. The opportunity to channel my inner Ted Ligety was too tempting... and wow was I not disappointed. Directed by Coach Dougie we received 4 days of hands on expert coaching which has given me huge confidence and hopefully made me a better and faster skier. The company on the trip was equally enjoyable with everyone sharing a common love of skiing, socialising and on at least one night stretching / fitness!!!
If you love skiing and you want to get better, this is the weekend for you! You will not regret it.
I just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic camp. It was an excellent programme and has given me lots to the think about with my skiing. Doing the gates and then the race today was so much fun too! It was great also to experience what the children do, and indeed the challenges they face - making adjustments, getting the right line and and generally. It's obviously not always as easy as it seems from the side of the race piste! It was a great group of people on the camp also and as always CDC worked so hard to make it all happen. Looking forward to the next one.
What to expect
This is a camp open to all skiers who can comfortably ski a black run - holiday skiers who want to hit some gates, masters racers looking to lift the GB title, parents of racers who want to be able to experience the same thrills, spills and emotions their children go through. Whatever your goals we will help you reach them! We have the skills and numbers in our coaching team to divide up into small groups to make sure you get a fantastic and individual experience.
Location: Hintertux Austria
With its high altitude, guaranteed snow and multiple training slopes (4 different options available) this is the perfect base for a great camp. A great reference website covering all aspects and more details of the glacier https://www.hintertuxergletscher.at/en/
