If you have previous racing experience this should be high on your priority list to supplement your BASI level 2 as you can be guaranteed work as an instructor in France. Skiers with no previous slalom experience may still attend the Test Technique training weeks but should be aware the Test Technique pass level is high and may require numerous weeks of training.
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 Test as close as possible and prepare mentally to achieve optimum performance. As part of our comitment to BASI members we have subsidised the training fee for BASI members. For non BASI members please see Race Camps. (*3 hours in December)
Fitness and Preparation
A fitness programme on 3 afternoons per week is included whilst training. The fitter you are the better chance you have of reaching the level.
