Training philosophies and content are overseen by Emma Carrick-Anderson, one of Britain’s finest ever female ski racers. Emma competed at 4 Olympic Games, 6 World Championships and numerous World Cups, was 11th in the 1997 World Championships, Britain’s top female Alpine Racer for 15 years. Emma will not be available on all weeks but oversees the programme content and philosophies and has a big influence on the race training programme.
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 to replicate race day conditions as closely as possible and prepare mentally to achieve optimum performance. (*3 hours in December)
Race camps require a high level of performance. Previous race training experience is not necessary as everyone has to start off somewhere. For those that are concerned if their level is high enough for a race camp, book on a Race Carve course first.
Fitness and Preparation
A fitness programme on 3 afternoons per week is included whilst training. The fitter you are the higher your performance level will be.
