For the past few years, Bormio has provided some of the nicest weather and the best snow conditions for racing

 

About the ATC Bormio camp

The ATC Bormio camp runs from the 8th - 22nd of February 2020. There is a BASS SL, GS and SG for the U14 and U16 racers, a SL, GS, SG and Combi for FIS racers and a GS and Combi race for the U12 and U10s. We encourage all young racers and families to attend these camps because of the great snow conditions and fantastic location. We run a training week prior to the races, which we think is essential to attend to get the very best out of the racing the following week.  We suggest that under 12s be accompanied by their parents if this is their first camp with ATC.

Training Week 8-15 February 

The residential option offers full support and pastoral care. This includes transfers on group flights, all food and accommodation at the brilliantly located Funivia hotel (just 100m walk from the gondola), ski tuning, video analysis of training, lift passes, and active recovery sessions. There will also be daily supervised school study times on this camp. 

Race Week 15-22 February

On race days the coaches will run pre race warm up before inspection with their groups. They will do the course inspection with all the athletes and help them get focussed and motivated in the start before the race. ATC is well known for the athletes being very sporting and fair and we make a point of encouraging the "team" to support each other and cheer each other on. Non race days will feature training for the next race.
