Race training during the summer in Norway is unrivalled. ATCs summer camp in Fonna offers improved snow conditions and a fast lift turn around meaning more runs on better snow. We have secured fantastic training and accomodation facilities for this camp and will be staying in a beautiful lodge right on the shores of a Fjord.

Information

With the rapid deterioration of the European glaciers through the summer months we have decided to head North to Fonna, in Norway to take advantage of this fantastic training facility.  Early July offer the best weather and snow conditions and the training organisers salt the pistes which make them firm and stable all day long. 

 Fonna glacier is the premier summer racing facility in Scandinavia

 The Hardanger Fjiord Lodge is situated in the nearest village to the ski resort and looks right on to the beutiful Fjord.

Off snow:

Our focus will be fitness development, setting young athletes up for a great summer of building strength and fitness. There will be lots of fun to be had as well and we would like to take advantage of the beautiful situation we are in to explore Norway's breath taking scenery.
