The last few years Bormio training and race week have provided some of the nicest weather and the best snow conditions all year.

 

About the ATC Bormio camp

The ATC Bormio camp runs from the 9th to the 23rd of February. There is a BASS SL GS and SG for the U14 and U16 racers, FIS SL GS SG and Combi for FIS and a GS and Combi race for the U12 and U10s. Due to the great snow conditions and fantastic location (Bormio) we encourage all young racers and families to attend. We run a training week prior to the races and we would encourage the two week camp to get the very best out of the racing.  If you are with us on a training only basis then we will meet and pick up at the lift station each morning. Please ensure you have a pass and are ready to ski at the meeting time. We suggest that under 12s be accompanied by their parents if this is their first camp with ATC.

Training Week 9-16 February 

The residential option offers full support and pastoral care. This includes transfers, all food and accommodation at the brilliantly located Funivia hotel just 100m walk from the gondola and active recovery, ski tuning and video analysis of the days racing and training. We are programming a daily supervised school study hour in to this camp. 

Race Week 16-23 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. The non race days with feature training for the next race.
