Hintertux has winter snow and guaranteed lift access at this time of year. The ATC October camps are fun and friendly and everyone is excited to be back training on the big mountain.

About the ATC October camp

We are running 4 separate camp weeks this year October 8-12, 13-19, 20-26 and 28-2 November. You can do any number of weeks. Our focus is to open up the training and give the campers training with more speed. The huge pistes allow us to work on areas of technique that can not be developed through the summer months. Hintertux is a great venue and offers winter conditions at this time of year meaning our campers get an opportunity to ski and train on real winter snow. The uplift is amazing and storm proof. While other resorts lifts are exposed to the wind, the reliable lifts and the aspect mean we are guaranteed skiing every day. We do video analysis on the mountain, in the restaurant at the top before we head down each day. ATC also has a dedicated heated room on the slope side at the top of the mountain to store our gear in overnight.

Training

For those who have trained this summer we will continue where we left off in Norway. For those coming on the camp for the first time we will spend some time developing your technique first free skiing, getting to know the mountain, and then getting straight into the gates. Hintertux in October is a great place to experience your first camp. We arrive Saturday night at the hotel in time for dinner, start skiing on the Sunday morning, and ski 6 days in a row, leaving on the Friday after skiing.

Off snow, our focus will be equally shared between fitness and stretching, tuning skis 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 camp.
