We will be running training and race support for the Ambition Races in Hinterreit, 4-7th January and the Evolution Speed Series in Reiteralm, 9-10th January.
Our coaching team comprises two of the most experienced and successful coaches out there. Ross Green and Jo Ryding have national team experience both as athletes and as coaches. Jo is arguably the female coach with the highest profile in UK snowsports, but don't take our word for it, read a bit more about Jo here!
We will be running training in preparation for the U16, U14 and U12 races and making sure that we hit the races at speed! Older racers are very welcome to join us for the training and experience as well.
You can choose to attend as an outlier or living in with the academy.
There is an option to fly home on the evening of the 7th, from Salzburg or stay the extra days for four more races, followed by two days of skiing until the 12th.
(See further down the page for more details on the different options.)
You will need to book your own flights and arrange your own ski racing travel insurance.
We will also give you a bunch of forms to fill out to make sure that we're looking after you as best we can. Please note that race entries are not included, you can book these at www.gbski.com.
ARA can also help out with equipment to make sure that you're organised and have everything you need to make the ski races as rewarding as they should be!
We love skiing and we want you to share our enthusiasm!
29th December to the 7th January
Flights are from Stansted to Salzburg with Ryanair, returning on the last flight on the evening of the 7th.
Lift pass is not included (we encourage our athletes to buy the season pass for the best value), flights and travel insurance are also not included.
This option allows you to train in preparation for the Ambition Series races, 4-7th January and then travel home on the evening of the races. You'll get four races in (weather dependent) and plenty of skiing.
29th December to the 12th January
Flights are from Stansted to Salzburg return with Ryanair. (There are no flights from Salzburg on the 10th or 11th).
This option allows you to compete in the Team Evolution Speed Series as well as the Ambition races. We can help with skis for speed events if this is needed and will make sure that you have the experience to feel comfortable in the speed events.
The Speed Series is a very friendly way of getting involved in speed racing and was designed to give younger racers the opportunity to compete at speed in a safe and controlled manner. We all want children to have a really positive experience at these races and the whole set-up is designed for maximum safety and enjoyment.
You will need to organise your own flights (there will be an accompanying adult booked both out and homewards), lift pass (we deliberately try to keep costs down by recommending the season pass) and insurance that covers use of terrain parks and ski racing.
If this is your preferred option then we like you too! You're easy for us. You sort your own travel, food, accommodation and turn up to where we're training every morning. Brilliant! We will give you all the information you need and make you feel part of the team and you can also join in with any other off-snow activities we are doing.
You will also need to arrange your own lift pass and ski racing insurance (including terrain parks).
