PROGRAMS & FEES
There are three options to join us: Summer, Fall, or PreSeason&Season. There is also a possibility, just for returning athletes, to join us for the winter only.
Our summer training program maximize training on snow (with 20 days on snow in average per month) and for rest dry-land (agility, mobility, stretching, lifting, climbing, hiking, biking etc.) and much needed rest. Training takes place first in Stelvio, Solda, Senales, Austria, Les Deux Alps as well as in inside domes for tech disciplines. Read here an article from Ski Racing about our Summer training.
Pre-season (mi-September to November)
A unique, intensive training and FIS racing program to get in top shape and enter a few pre-season FIS races to be ready for the season! The program combines pre-season training and dry training with FIS races, which in the Alps begin in November. Training takes place first in Stelvio, Solda, Senales or Austria, then when snow conditions allows, in Alta Badia, Aprica, Bormio, Cortina, Diavolezza (CH), Dobbiaco, Fassa etc. New from this year, we added an additional home-base in Florence, Italy, the birthplace of Renaissance, for the off-snow weeks in the fall! Who get to dry-train with a view??

A series of zoom meetings with the prospective athlete and the family is a possible, yet less recommended option. Once we have accepted you, you will need a non-refundable deposit that will be subtracted from your fees.
