Information For Landgraaf
Hamburg provides very different conditions and training than you get in a UK snow dome. The super hard snow provides a firm consistent base that simulates race conditions. We get lots of runs in during each session, sometimes as many as 20 in a two-hour period. The slalom courses are up to 35 gates long so if we are just skiing slalom runs that equates to over 500 gates over the day! This is considerably more than can be achieved out doors in an alpine resort. It is no surprise to learn that this is where Dave Ryding does a great deal of his summer training.
Dates and Locations
Landgraaf Training Camp
Goals of the Camp
The focus of this camp is slalom and working on technical changes that are needed. Off snow our focus will be equally shared between fitness and stretching, tuning skis (we have our new team Snow-glide machine to speed up the process) and rest and recovery. It is a full schedule and athletes need to be focused, healthy and motivated to get the most out of this concentrated camp. We will be hitting the ground running with a session on the evening we arrive.
We will have an accompanying adult on some of these flights. If you would like to organize separate travel please let us know the details.
