We prepare well for the championships and prioritise getting it right on the competition days.


The National Championships, the best of the best in the nation competing for top spot. These races are a cornerstone to National Team selection and nomination for international races. Spring time in the French Alps is warm and sunny with hard snow in the mornings getting softer in the afternoons so the races start early. 

We are looking to make a good showing at the Nationals this year. We have strong teams in all categories and are the defending one title, the U16s boys trophy. We again have the use of the ATC race piste in Val D’Isere for the training week. This is always a productive training week, avoiding the Tignes race pistes when the Juniors and Seniors are racing. Those staying with us on the residential option will be staying at Chalet Chardons (Le Breviers) from the 24th to 30st March and at the Hotel Paquis (Le Lac) for the race week 31st March to 7th April.

We have very limited spaces for the live in option on both weeks so if you would like to stay with ATC then please book early. We still have spaces for live out and race support only, for both weeks. Remember you need sub 400 points in one discipline to race at the British if you are U14 U16. No qualification needed in U12 and U10. We suggest that under 12s be accompanied by their parents if this is their first camp with ATC.

Training the week before the Champs is essential to best prepare and build confidence. We have the use of a private piste, with a fast turn around ski lift which enables us to get a tonne of training in a very short time. 



Dates and Locations

British Championship Prep Training Week

Tignes  31 March - 6th April 

Goals of the Camp

On Snow: We hit the slopes early for the training and racing week. We book a private training piste in resort where we get a faster turn around. Afternoon skiing is a little softer snow so we tend to do a few runs in the gates then have some fun free skiing around resort. During the training days we will focus our attention on fine tuning technical areas and getting used to skiing longer courses under race conditions. 

Off snow: Our focus will be equally shared between fitness, stretching and active recovery. Time will be spent tuning their skis, under supervision of the coaches.


For U14 and U16 there is a National SL, GS and SG as well as a fun Parallel SL for everyone. These races are British seeded (BASS) races and results from the British Championships are the main factor included as selection for the British U16 and U14 Teams.

For the U12s there is a GS and Combi.
