Video analysis and timing
On-hill video combined with proven race training progressions, allows us to maximise 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.
We ski on a privat slope at the Rinerhorn ski area near Davos. It lies in the heart of the Graubünden mountains in the east of Switzerland. The insider’s tip among Davos Klosters’ winter sports enthusiasts: the Rinerhorn skiing resort is diverse and far away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds.
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 trainings 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.
Where do we stay?
We stay at Hotel Ducan situated in the very natural Walser- village of Davos-Monstein. The 120-year old mountain hotel, which was renovated in 2008 in a very gentle and natural way . This 3 *** house with its rustically furnished, wood scenting rooms, enables you to relax and be at ease.
Enjoy the magnificent serenity from the breath-taking mountains of Graubünden. The idyllic Monstein lying at 1650 meters with its quiet location is the perfect place for a relaxing stay in the Swiss Alps.
“Take a deep breath of the clean mountain air and let your gaze glide far over the magnificent peaks. You will realize – in the sun kissed mountain atmosphere the everyday stress and strains are quickly forgotten.”
