Training is Monday to Friday all day during glacier ski open hours in gates or alternative training will always be provided if the weather does not permit. We also include regular video analysis. Every Friday a comprehensive race is run with electronic timing to replicate the Eurotest as closely as possible and prepare mentally to achieve optimum performance.
As part of our commitment to BASI members we have subsidised the training fee for BASI members only and members of equivalent associations. Snoworks PRO staff have all gone through this process and fully understand the cost implications and thus try to offer the best price packages and value for money in this market place.
The Eurotest (European Common Training Test for Ski Instructors as of March 2019) is part of the top-level European ski teaching qualifications. In the U.K this is the ISTD BASI Level 4.
We offer coaching for ski instructors just beginning their Eurotest journey with no previous race experience, through to those closing in on the test level. Please contact us to chat about your specific level, experience and requirements.
For those of you looking to train towards Masters races or FIS then we are ready to help you achieve your personal goals. Please contact us for a bespoke program to suit your training needs.
Maximise your performance to be at your best for game time, by letting your coach absorb any race day stress.
Travel: – Taken to and from the Eurotest saves energy and decreases stress as part of a team
Train/Freeski: – Train or freeski on the actual race hill where possible before your big day.
Bib collection: – Have someone on your side who knows when and where to be, and can sort any unforeseen problems so you can stay focused on the task at hand.
Race Day: – Warm up with the coach, inspection and race tactics made, skis prepped with fast wax, put in the start gate race ready.
Most of all race support allows you to charge out of the start gate the very best you can be! Stress free and ready to perform to the maximum.
Moving forwards from 2020 and beyond we are taking our race training programs to a NEW venue to be confirmed in the next few weeks! We have done detailed research of several other Alpine glaciers and decided to move the 3 early weeks of our camps. We truly believe the quality of snow, turn around time, and facilities are an integral part of your training program and success with us here at Snoworks PRO.
A specific and progressively structured fitness programme will be delivered as an integral part of this training program on a minimum of two afternoons per week, with further programs and advice available at your request. At this level, you will all be well versed in your own personal fitness programs, but please contact us for help and development in this field. The fitter you are the better chance you have of reaching the level. Also please see our 6-week fitness prep program on You Tube and read our selection of fitness Blogs.
"My first experience of Euan Gardiner was in Summer 2017 when I came to him in need of some skiing consistency. Over the next season, Euan was able to transform my skiing using his wide depth and knowledge of skiing and racing. We spent a significant length of time together each day; training in the day, dry land activities in the afternoons and making sure my skis were at a sufficient standard for the next day. At Snoworks PRO they pride themselves with smaller groups, so they can equally share their time with you, both on the hill and with feedback and video sessions off the hill. He took the stress out of my Test Technique in Alpe d’Huez as he sorted the entry, the travel and the accommodation for the trip, which meant I was able to focus purely on my training. On the race itself, he was there for support and he must have done something right as all three of us passed!"
