SLALOM TRAINING IN LANDGRAAF

Come and join Emma Carrick-Anderson and Phil Smith for 4 days of slalom training in the ski dome in Landgraaf. Guaranteed 4 hours (split into 2 x 2 hour sessions) of slalom training on hard, compact snow with no worries of missing training time due to poor weather or snow conditions. A huge advantage with indoor training.

This is a truly fantastic way to hone your slalom skills. You should get between 10-15 runs in during each 2 hour slot.

Emma Carrick-Anderson our Snoworks Ski Coach is herself 4 time Olympic ski racer and one of the UK’s most successful ski racers. Emma can regularly been seen or heard commentating with the BBC and Eurosport. Phil, represented his home country as a youngster, worked as a BASI Trainer and holds a diploma in Sports Coaching.

Emma has organised lanes that are ‘injected’ with water to ensure consistency and a firm training surface. Any experienced racers will know how important it is to train these days on an injected surface. Emma will also organise ‘non injected’ lanes for softer snow providing a great variety of training surfaces for all.

Training will be split into 2 x 2 hour sessions with a break for video analysis and food in between sessions. Following skiing there will be some light fitness, stretching and ski tuning workshops. We will have use of a ski room where skis can be tuned and we can leave all our equipment when not in use.

You can stay in the adjacent Hotel and the training slope is literally next door. All meals are included making this a fantastic, totally hassle free training camp.
