The ATC Austria Racing Academy is our base in the heart of the Austrian Alps. Situated in the mountain village of Steinach the Academy offers committed young athletes a world class training facility and a clear pathway to achieving their goals in ski racing. Training is available day and night under the flood lights. We are able to use a variety of training areas and slopes on the mountain for Slalom GS and SuperG. The race pistes in Steinach are frequently used by the Austrian and US national teams for training.
The Academy is a mountain home away for school age athletes to keep up with their academic studies while training hard under the direction of our world class coaches.
The resort of Bergeralm is in the Wipptal region of Tyrol Austria. Bergeralm regularly plays training host to the Austrian Ski Team. Snow making on five separate floodlit race pistes and a new heated six person chair make Bergeralm a world class training venue. We are 20 minutes drive from Innsbruck airport and 90 minutes from Munich
ATC staff work with the athlete's existing schools to set up educational support for each individual which is tailored around their specific needs.
