This is an excellent camp for all levels to start preparing for Winter 2021/22.
Long mornings skiing (the glacier is open until 2pm with a very fast turn around with multiple T bars once on the training piste) focusing on fundamentals in free skiing, creating a little black book of personal drills to get athletes ready for racing, strategy and tactics in gates - both stubbies, long gates, slalom, giant slalom and parallel, equipment testing.
A full variety of fitness activities including rock climbing, luge, beach volleyball and much much more!
We provide World Class Coaching where every coach is highly vetted in terms of communication skills, their talent and their passion. Our coaches can ski. They will be able to demo all the skills asked of the athletes, both in and out of gates. For our younger racers we use the power of visual learning and imitation by having them follow our ex racing coaches, including World Cup racers Chemmy and Dougie, down through the gates to demonstrate both tactical and technical needs.
We adopt positive coaching strategies at all times providing constant feedback to racers in an encouraging but clear manner.
Not only will your athlete return as a more talented skier, but our aim is to improve their self belief and confidence in every way, both on and off the mountain.
Our small ratio of coach to athletes (no more than 6 racers to every trainer) means that every athlete has the chance to work on their individual skills in a highly attentive environment.
Combining our care, passion and knowledge has become our proven formula for success.
