October ski racing camps in Saas-Fee
Ski Zenit offers race training all over Europe year round. During the Summer and Autumn seasons we are mostly based in Saas-Fee (probably the best Summer skiing resort in Europe), offering our Summer and October ski racing camps. During the month of November we move to Zinal, in the Val d’Anniviers, where alpine ski training conditions are unbeatable (we leave Saas-Fee because of the heavy snowfalls in the glacier), training alongside the best racers in The World Cup Circuit.
This is a short movie of one of our October ski racing camps. We had a group of Canadians (from Quebec), Swiss and Spanish racers. We also had a mix bag of conditions, with fresh powder, blue skies, heavy snowfalls, worm and cold temperatures… we had it all, and we skied it all!
Hope you like the movie!
The week before I had the chance of skiing with Lily and August, two incredible young racers. We had an incredible time, learned a lot and skied in all type of snow and weather conditions. It’s always great for the ski coach to mix younger and older athletes in different weeks, like that you never get bored, and you feel like if you never got old!
Here is the short movie from them:

Switzerland or Austria racing camps for this Summer?
When we think about Summer ski camps there is not that many options in Europe. Austria racing camps mainly take place in Hintertux, Pitztal and Stubai. These glaciers offer good conditions in Spring and in late fall due to their height and exposition. In France the main Summer ski resorts are Tignes and Les Deux Alps. During the last years the French glaciers struggled with snow conditions and huge crowds.
We run our Summer ski racing camps in Saas-Fee because conditions are PERFECT ALL SUMMER for ski racing. The slopes offer a variety of gradients and lengths, and the snow is in great conditions during the whole Summer season. This choice of slopes make it ideal for racers of all levels and ages. Early mornings ensure firm conditions for gate training and free skiing until noon.
Starting at 4 PM the afternoon is full of different sports and activities. Racers benefit from video analysis, profesional condition training and sport psychologist.
Well prepared slopes adding to a car free town is the reason why Ski Zenit is based in Saas-Fee. National teams from all over the world chose Saas-Fee for the same reasons as us.
Ski Zenit has been running ski racing camps for the last decade. We ensure the highest quality of training by enrolling a very profesional team of coaches following the guidelines of our Technical Director Mauro Pini (Former coach for several top athletes of the World Cup circuit).
Our coaching method is very personalized transmitting the most up to date technique.
Here is a short movie that shows the Summer skiing slopes of Saas-Fee, and Ski Zenit’s racers training hard to achieve their goals!
Apart from the great slopes and snow conditions, another reason to chose Swiss rather than French or Austria racing camps is the magic of the town of Saas-Fee. You’re in a car free town surrounded by the some of the biggest peaks in the Alps. This is a really safe place to grant some freedom to your kids while keeping peace of mind.
Here is a short video we’ve made showing some of the incredible views we enjoy each day.
If you want more information about our Summer ski racing camps, or you want to visit Saas-Fee and need some assistance, don’t hesitate on sending us an email at [email protected] or click Here! and we will get back to you with all the detailed information you are seeking!
See you soon training with us this Summer and Autumn!

Ski camps in Mt. Hood or should you go to Switzerland?
When the Summer season starts, skiing in North America becomes a bit of a challenge. The only two places you can ski during the Summer are Mt. Hood and Whistler Blackomb. Ski camps in Mt. Hood can be great, but the glacier has really struggled during the last years. There is really big queues in the lifts and the snow condition is very often not optimal for alpine race training. Whistler is another option if you want to travel to British Columbia, but the terrain is really limited if you compare it to the bigger glaciers in Europe.
To summarize, if you want to get good quality ski race training during the Summer season you have two options; flying to the Southern Hemisphere in search of an endless Winter, or going to the bigger European glaciers. Both options are unique and offer completely different things.
- In the Southern Hemisphere you will have a real Winter, with short days, bigger skiable areas and variable Winter skiing conditions.
- In the Swiss Saas-Fee glacier you will be able to fully focus on your race training while having a great time. You can fully devote yourself to improve your skiing performance and physical condition. The long days offer the possibility of 3-4 hours ski sessions and after lunch (and some rest) attend our many activities working along with our professional condition trainers and sport psychologist. Many evenings include personalized video analysis with the ski coaches.
Taking into account all the factors mentioned above, Ski Zenit has based itself in Saas-Fee to deliver the highest quality ski racing camps available. The glacier has perfect slopes for free skiing, slalom, giant slalom and super giant slalom training. The car free town and sport facilities offer the ideal environment for racers to focus on their personal and technical development.
We help with the organization of your whole ski trip, doesn’t matter if you want to send your kids on their own, want to travel to Switzerland as a family or you’re a Master ski racer that’s seeking private training or ski camps. We run our own athletes hotel, but we can also offer a variety of hotels, chalets and apartments, as well as ski passes and airport shuttles.
Ski Zenit has developed a very unique and thoughtful coaching method, which ensures full adaptation to each athlete. Under the guidelines of Head Coach Mauro Pini (former World Cup coach of some of the best ski racers) our professional team of coaches is teaching the most up to date ski racing techniques and tactics.
I have attached a short movie from Summer 2016 with a group of Swedish and Swiss racers that were training with Ski Zenit in Saas-Fee. Enjoy!
Skiing in Europe, apart from the quality of the skiing in Saas-Fee, there is a great cultural component. In the small ski villages the culture is completely different from North America. Many people that come from the U.S.A. to our ski racing camp also combine their trip with cultural visits to the nearby cities and countries.
Here is a short edit of the town where we develop our ski racing camps, Saas-Fee. This will give you an idea of the great environment you’re constantly surrounded by.

See you soon skiing with us in Saas-Fee!
Peace and love
It’s been a really snowy week in Saas-Fee, the ski resort was closed two days this week, but we’ve been able to have great training regardless of the weather conditions!
We trained some indoor climbing, agility exercises, hockey… there is no down days with Ski Zenit. Last night it snowed about 40cm in town, crazy snowfall for mid October, now we’re getting ready to ski some champagne quality powder
Hope you like this short video of the week, skiing on all types of snow, training Giant Slalom gates, enjoying the powder, skiing the half pipe, jumping… we did it all.

Summer ski performance Saas Fee
We’ve had a great first week on the Summer glacier in Saas-Fee. Snow conditions were amazing, and we didn’t do a single cue during the whole week!
I had an incredible time with Scarlett and Bona. We trained on piste technique, adventured a bit off piste, started with our race training career and went to the Snowpark.
Hope you like this short video I made. If you like piña coladas, and getting stuck in the rain you should love it!

Hope to see you soon shredding the gnar!
Ski race training doesn’t just happen in the slopes. Physical conditioning is one of the most important parts in a solid ski race training program.
In Zenit ski racing we take really seriously the physical condition training of all of our athletes. When skiing with us, they all have dry land training sessions in the afternoon. We can organize or recommend specific exercises for physical conditioning related to race training throughout the whole year.
Here is a short video of some of our strength and coordination drills.
