Lift pass costs are around 19 euros for the day, however half day tickets are available and there are usually multiday offers available in resort.
The training program will consist of free skiing, technical drills, slalom gates and gs gates, dependent on local snow conditions, weather conditions and availability of training pistes. A typical session will start at 08:45hrs and run through to 13:00hrs. In the afternoons we hope to have video analysis, ski prep, and some fitness work.
Cost of the training sessions will be determined when we have final numbers, but should not be more than 32 euros per trainee per session. The more we have the less it will be.
All trainees must have adequate race / training insurance and correct safety equipment. Please see the Athlete Safety page.
