SKI TRAINING

Athletes participating in our training camps will be divided into training groups based on skill level with a maximum of 7 skiers per group. Groups may change during the course of the week in order to work on each athlete’s specific goals with a view to best individualising training.

Our ski training program for Master Racers and Instructors is flexible enough to adapt to different goals and levels of performance and bring the best out of each of them, providing a good balance between confidence building and step by step achievements for permanent progress.

SPORTS AND PHYSICAL TRAINING

All athletes attending our camps will take part in physical workouts throughout the week. These workouts will always be age appropriate and based on the condition of each athlete. They are designed to be challenging and demanding as well as fun and creative. These post-ski workouts focus on recovery from the training sessions and protection against injury; the aim is also to improve strength, coordination, balance, agility and flexibility.

Team sports and mountain treks will also be a part of the activities during the afternoons and non-skiing days. Saas-Fee is the ideal setting to engage in a wide range of sports and physical training.

YOGA AND MEDITATION

We have included yoga and meditation in our group training camps to help athletes calm their body and mind. It is an excellent way to relax, stretch and strengthen muscles after a long day of training. It also teaches them how to ease their mind and delve into their inner stillness and peace for full recovery.

Yoga is a great way for our athletes to work on physical conditioning, gain the agility that comes from deep stretching and is also highly recommended for muscle recovery. We have fully certified yoga instructors that adapt the difficulty and intensity of each session to the different skill levels and ages. Meditation is a great way to relax and focus on your inner-self and helps athletes to "get in the zone", that special place that enables competitors to ski to their potential even in the most stressful situations.

SKI TUNING

Taking good care of the ski bases and edges is a must in order to perform during ski training. Every afternoon racers will do all the necessary tuning of their skis with the help of the trainers.

VIDEO ANALYSIS

Video analysis is an important tool for our coaches to help racers understand and improve the subjects they are trying to develop while ski training. Technical and tactical concepts that are important in order to perform will be well explained during these sessions, so they are clear for next day’s training.
