Goals of the Camp

IMG_1573.jpg

On Snow: We will focus on improving athletes speed and technique during this camp. The resort of Berger Alm is one of the best race training venues in Austria and ATC will take full advantage of the great piste preparation. With 150 snowmaking machines we are always guaranteeing great ski conditions. We will vary training courses and conditions to build up your strengths and identify and address any areas where you can make improvements. 

Off snow: Our focus will be equally shared between fitness and stretching, tuning skis and active recovery. 

Racing

There are a total of 8 races available over 7 days in early January. These races are British seeded (BASS) races and are included as selection races for the British U16 and U14 Teams. The race conditions in Austria are far more reliable than France or Italy at this time of year. There are also U12 and U10 races so we will also provide coaching support for these age groups.

  • Jan 4th - 7th Ambition Tech Series
    BASS 2xSL 2xGS Hinterreit Austria. 

GBR race entries and information can be found on the GBSKI website http://www.gbski.com/index.php

We will travel on the 3rd January and stay close to the race piste returning on the 8th Jan

  • Jan 8th – 10th Evolution Speed Series
    BASS SG x3 SC x1 Reiteralm Austria

If staying for the Speed series we plan to move hotels on the 7th. SG training is offered on the 8th with races on the 9th and 10th. Travel home will be on the 11th from Munich or Salzburg.
