What's involved?

The training program is designed to give those working in Zermatt the opportunity to focus on high level training while being able to work the busy weeks allowing you to have a good season and prepare for your exam.

The weeks will involve full days on the hill as well as video analysis each week. We would encourage you to keep a record of where you are each week and what you are working on. Using this to help you work towards your goals.

The weeks will build on each other, starting with looking at where your skiing is at and what the level is moving through to the last week which will be focusing on fewer high quality runs across all the strands. 

 

SEASON PLAN OVERVIEW

The winter will have set weeks of training and then the opportunity to teach or shadow during peak season. There is also a week for extra training in mountain safety, snowboard or adaptive.
