The Eurotest training programme is headed by Emma Carrick-Anderson, one of Britain's finest ever female ski racers. Emma competed at no less than 4 Olympic Games, 6 World Championships and numerous World Cups, was 11th in the '97 World Champs, Britain's top female Alpine Racer for 15 years and a calibrated opener for the Eurotest. Emma knows what it takes to 'reach the level'.
Training is Monday to Friday for a minimum of 4 hours of on-snow work in the gates or alternative training if weather does not permit with regular video analysis. Every Friday a comprehensive race is run with electronic timing and pace setters to replicate the Eurotest as close as possible and prepare mentally to achieve optimum performance.
Fitness and Preparation
Emma is a qualified fitness coach. Her knowledge combined with experience of training in the National Squads will ensure your fitness won't let you down. A fitness programme on 3 afternoons per week is included whilst training and Emma will also be free to advise on fitness throughout the year leading up to your training. The fitter you are the better chance you have of reaching the level.
Eurotest requires that you are a member of BASI or an equivalent ski teaching organisation. Previous race training experience is ideal, but not strictly necessary for Eurotest Training; however, you may want to consider trying an iSKI Race course for initial experience. Call our office and ask to speak to Emma directly for advice.
