Though we collaborate with the local school in Alta Badia and with a local-English speaking hybrid school, most of our athletes are either in a gap year or, after COVID, follow their home program online. We are happy to advice you on schooling as well as on college choice and strategies.
All non-Italian speakers take Italian language classes, with the possibility to take a final certification. PG athletes also have the option to work as a research assistants for a range of academic programs.

We have two different home bases: one in Alta Badia in the Dolomites, and the other in Aprica, in the Bormio region, where athletes live together in a house. New from this year, a additional home base in Florence, the birthplace of Renaissance, during the fall off-snow weeks! Who get to live with a view??
For the rest, expect a lot of hotels, especially in the pre-season and for races. Living independently is also possible for the older athletes or if coming as a family. Contact us for more details and options.
