Giant Slalom Race TRAINING

Snoworks PRO is excited to have taken over the running of our Giant Slalom race training program from Snoworks, and are looking to make it bigger and better than it already was, alongside head coach Euan Gardiner, for Eurotest, Masters and FIS racers.

WHAT’S NEW?

  • Price drop! 1-week training price ‘down’ from £280pw to £250pw!
  • Group size reduction ‘down’ from 10 per group to just 8!
  • New Venue! The first 3 weeks of our complete autumn program will be held in the new venue of Kaprun. Following extensive research, we believe this will offer the best training possible for those looking for training at this level.

Coaching Details

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.

PREVIOUS RACE TRAINING EXPERIENCE

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.

Race Support

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.

New Venue

Moving forwards from 2020 and beyond we are taking our race training programs to a NEW venue of Kaprun, Austria! 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.

Fitness and preparation

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.
