Video analysis and timing
On-hill video combined with proven race training progressions, allows us to maximize learning and skill acquisition.
During your session, our coaches will help you to improve your ski racing skills. Every day we videotape your training runs in the gates. Then you and your coach get together to watch the tape and figure out what you need to work on. Video analysis is one of the most powerful learning tools available to you and will help you achieve your goals faster.
Ella Alpiger and her team have strong coaching and skiing backgrounds and are passionate about their sport. Our coaches are here to teach you and enable you to achieve your goals.
What are our secrets?
That great ski racing takes more than great skiing! Our coaches bring unmatched enthusiasm as they teach you the moves on snow, and also share their experiences with mental prep, equipment, fitness, nutrition, teamwork, rest and all the other things that are critical to the process of being the best skier you can be. We use modern gate progressions (easier to more difficult) to maximize proper movement patterns. We also use drills and skill development progressions to build each of the primary movements. We then integrate the newly developed skills back into the athlete’s technique. In the evenings we have tactical lectures with video analysis and take it to the hill, free-skiing and then into the gates.
Why join the ski race camp Switzerland?
Be inspired, be encouraged, be challenged, and learn in a fun, friendly environment. Come with a positive attitude and a desire to learn—Leave with new friends, new skills and memories to last a lifetime. Our training method is unique because we keep the ski groups small so we can individualize the coaching program for each skier. This allows us to meet the individual needs of each skier. The athlete-centered teaching methodology combined with a low athlete-to-coach ratio allows the ski camp coaches to develop an individual focus for each skier rather than just a group focus.
