What makes your camp standout amongst the rest? More than a traditional camp, this is a truly unique program and opportunity to train & race like our athletes who are or have been in the National Team, European Cup and World Cup. In addition to training on the snow, there will be fitness and conditioning sessions, ski tuning workshops with World Cup ski-man, as well as meetings with World Cup Ski racers and former racers who will share their experience and advice. The December program (3-18 December 2018) is designed for U16 to FIS athletes, who can train alongside our FIS Group and the various National Teams that are in Alta Badia to train for the Ski World Cup. As our Ski Club is the World Cup race organizer, you will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of the Men’s Ski World Cup backstage. The two January camps (7-21 January 2019; 21 January- 4 February 2019) are open to U14 (accompanied by an adult), U16 and FIS athletes. Athletes will also race alongside our team and under the guidance of our coaches: FIS athletes will join FIS and NJR races in the area, while U14 & U16 will race under our banner in local and national races, a truly unique and challenging experience as South Tirol is one of the most competitive ski areas in the world. Interacting with racers from all over the world, enjoying all Italy and the Dolomites have to offer, it will be an enriching experience both technically and personally.
Best piece of advice for someone attending summer camp for the first time: You’ll never want to leave… Be ready for a very intensive, exhilarating, fun experience that will change your life! As athletes will train and race with our athletes, participation to the race camps is capped and admittance is competitive.
