Spring is the start of the next season. It is where we test equipment and work on making you stronger and faster technically. Conditions high up on the glacier in Hintertux are excellent at this time of year. Cold snow, stable weather and no other teams training at this time make for a great spring Easter camp.

About the Easter camp

11-18 April

The camp takes place during the Easter holidays and is available for all age groups from U12 to Junior. The training is well suited for those coming straight from the ATC Tignes camp or as a stand alone Easter camp arriving directly from another country. The training atmosphere is focused but relaxed and we have lots of fun with little pressure or race schedule to worry about. The on-hill coaching offers young athletes the chance to make gains and get better technically with little or no distractions. Down off the mountain the weather is more like summer so we are normally out biking, swimming and hill walking cooling off after a hard day up the hill. There is equipment available to try and test so if you need stiffer boots or longer skis then this is the time to test and see what works.

Emergency medical insurance is required and specifically you need to be covered for ski racing.  We highly recommend cancelation insurance, because if you have to cancel your booking due to any reason within 4 weeks of the camp start date you will not receive a refund from ATC.  You are responsible for checking that your insurance meets these requirements.
