We offer two different programs: Winter Term and Full Academic Year.  

The Winter Term program lasts from December 1st, 2019 to April 5th, 2020.

We ski 5 days a week, in addition to having weekly maintenance sessions. Skiing is either in the morning or in the afternoon. Winter Term students-athletes also have the possibility to join the ski team summer programs (both on and off-snow, for a fee).

The Academic Year runs from mid-September to mid-June. In the fall we have conditioning sessions as well as several training sessions on the glaciers, both in Italy and in Austria. During season, we ski 5 days a week, in addition to having maintenance sessions. In season, skiing is either in the morning or in the afternoon. Full time academic-year student-athletes also have the possibility to join the ski team summer programs (both on and off-snow, for a fee). 

We suggest start with the Winter program. In deciding to which program to apply, please consider that while U16 races start in mid-December, with a calendar that allows for substantial training during the winter, FIS races begin already in November and continue with an intense calendar which makes training in the preseason essential. 

We also offer ski racing camps in early December and all January, which give the opportunity to better know us (and for us to know you) before deciding.

The deadline for applying is March 5th, 2020.

Documents: Health certificate, Insurance, Passport

Under Italian law, it is required for all athletes to have a valid health certificate expressly attesting the athlete physical ability to race in ALPINE SKIING. Upon acceptance, you will be required to send us the health certificate, copy your health insurance - without which you will be not able to take part in the Academy - and a copy of your passport. We can otherwise book the physical tests for you, but please be aware you won't be able to take part in training or racing unless you have a valid health certificate. U16 also need an Italian "codice fiscale" (we will do it for you).
