  • 5 Days of Ski Technique and Gates Training
  • Race SL and GS Stronger and Faster

Join our highly successful seasonal ski racing team for a 5 day camp during the school holidays. Head coach Jack Evans has a team of very experienced ski racing coaches that will work with you on skiing better and faster in the race course as well as improving your overall skiing skills. While the mornings are spent going through the race course we will do video analysis and ski technique work on the groomers as well as in the off piste.

Treble Cone, Wanaka NZ - TCRA training day

Our approach to ski racing is to raise junior ski racers that have solid ski racing fundamentals, enabling them to ski all kinds of terrain and conditions and succeed in all different race situations.

We believe that big buildings need strong foundations and a young ski racer needs strong ski fundamentals in order to be successful in the future. We are not about endless, unattended lapping of gates, rather building the right skills in various terrain. You can expect us to work with great precision to guarantee that the right muscle memory is created.

The Holiday Ski Racing Camps are specialized ski racing programmes, as such Athletes will only benefit if their skiing is at a certain level (level 5+). After an on snow assessment on day one, participants might be moved to our regular group lessons for the morning to make sure that they will have a good time.

Treble Cone also offers seasonal Ski Race Programmes varying in lengths and intensities.

 

FAQ:

What are the training times?
We will train for 4.5 hours each day on snow. To give you a little more time on day 1 we will meet at 9:30 in the TC Snow Sports School meeting area, which is on snow directly opposite of the guest services where you can see the red flags. On the following days the training might start earlier but this will be discussed in each training group individually. Around 12pm we will have a short lunch break. Lunch is not provided but will be supervised. Training will end around 2:30pm - 3:00pm.

Is transport provided?
Transport is not included in this programme. We will assist in organising car pools.

Do I need special skis for this programme?
No. But as you will spend a lot of time trying to ski as fast as possible around gates we recommend that you use a ski that makes carving easier and allows you to go faster. Special race skis are not required.

Will we only be skiing in gates?
No. We will use the 5 days best to help you improve your ski racing performance. This will of course also involve work on your general skiing skills. We therefore will do a lot of very helpful ski technique drills in various terrain, will use video to help you see what you could be doing better and will also use TC’s great off-piste terrain to help you become a well-rounded ski racer.

What can I expect from this programme?
You can expect to train with some very experienced race coaches that will really care about your 
development as a skier. In our personal and small training groups we will try to create an environment where you can grow your love for ski racing and skiing in general and we will give our best that you have a great week ski racing at Treble Cone.
