Landgraaf indoor camps maximum training time and value. These massive snow-domes can accommodate a full length slalom course and even a short GS! We train as many as 25 runs a day and still have time for ski tuning, fitness and fun!

Dates

26-29 September / 2 x training days and 2 x BASS racing days / U16 U14 U12

Introduction

Landgraaf has very different conditions and training compared to 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.

ATC head to Landgraaf Holland for the first BASS races of season 2020. This is a great opportunity for U14s to get some points ahead of the new season and for U16s to lower there slalom ranking and get some race experience. We will also have a days training in preparation.
