speed camp autumn europe

Ski Zenit is thrilled to offer a series of exclusive camps tailored for elite athletes who are eager to enhance their skills. These specialized camps, named Precision Camps, gather top athletes from across the world at different intervals throughout the year.

The SG camp organized by Ski Zenit takes place on a premium speed course in the northern hemisphere, offering all the essential components for a top-tier camp experience. Featuring small group sizes, skilled speed coaches, personalized speed technique sessions, and more, we guarantee that participants derive the utmost advantage from this intensive speed camp.

Our athletes are grouped according to age, and all participants are required to exhibit a high level of racing proficiency in order to be eligible for our camps.

Yoga Ski Camp Europe

We have included stretching, yoga and meditation as part of our training to help athletes calm their body and mind. It is an excellent way to relax, stretch and strengthen muscles after a long day of training. It also teaches them how to ease their mind and delve into their inner stillness and peace for full recovery.

Yoga is a great way for our athletes to work on physical conditioning, gain the agility that comes from deep stretching and is also highly recommended for muscle recovery. We have fully certified yoga instructors that adapt the difficulty and intensity of each session to the different skill levels and ages.

Meditation is a great way to relax and focus on your inner-self and helps athletes to “get in the zone”, that special place that enables competitors to ski to their potential even in the most stressful situations. This activity will be done with other athletes of similar age after every third day of training.

Training in speed camp europe

All athletes taking part in our training will take part in physical workouts throughout the week. These workouts will always be age appropriate and based on the condition of each athlete. They are designed to be challenging and demanding as well as fun and creative.

These post-ski workouts focus on recovery from the training sessions and protection against injury; the aim is also to improve strength, coordination, balance, agility and flexibility.

Saas-Fee is the ideal setting to engage in a wide range of sports and physical training. For these activities, athletes doing private training will join others of a similar age.

Hiking in Ski Camp Saas Fee

Team sports and mountain treks will also be a part of the activities during the afternoons and non-skiing days. Saas-Fee is the ideal setting to engage in a wide range of sports and physical training. Saas-Fee is a paradise for all these activities, offering amazing paths for all ages and levels as well as many field sports.

Bouldering in the Swiss Alps

Bouldering in the Swiss Alps during the summer is an exciting and challenging outdoor activity. The alpine terrain offers a variety of rocks and boulder formations that test the skills and endurance of climbers. The breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and valleys are an added bonus. Whether you’re a seasoned climber or just starting out, the Swiss Alps provide a unique and unforgettable experience for all levels of bouldering enthusiasts.

Rollerblading for ski camps

Rollerblading improves your skiing in several ways. Both activities require similar skills such as balance, coordination, and control. It will help develop your leg strength, agility, and endurance, which are all important for skiing. Additionally, the repetitive motions of rollerblading can help improve your muscle memory and reaction time, making it easier to adjust to the demands of skiing.

Training balance for ski racing

Balance is a crucial component in ski racing. A skier’s ability to maintain a stable position and adjust to changing terrain is critical in alpine skiing. Not only does good balance provide better control and precision, it also helps reduce the risk of injury. In ski racing, every fraction of a second counts, and working on your balance through targeted exercises can make all the difference in your results. Ski Zenit’s program helps ski racers improve their balance, increase stability, and achieve their goals on the mountain.

ski bases in the ski training

Taking good care of ski bases and edges is a must in order to perform during ski training. Every afternoon racers age 12 and older will learn and carry out all the necessary tuning of their skis with the help of the trainers, who will also take care of younger athletes’ skis.

video analysis for ski training

Video analysis is an important tool for our coaches to help racers understand and improve the areas they are trying to develop while ski training. Technical and tactical concepts that are important to performance will be well explained during these sessions so that they are clear for next day’s training. One session of video analysis will be done after every 2 or 3 days of training.

My son absolutely loves this camp. He enjoys the cultural experience as well as having an enormous amount of autonomy that teaches him to be responsible and self-reliant. The camp is very well organized and all the coaches have a wealth of experience to impart on athletes of all ages. My wife and do everything we possibly can to get him to Saas Fee twice a year.

Over the past few years, both my son and daughter have been attending Zenit. However, more recently, only my son has been participating. I am consistently impressed by the way they engage with my children - providing support, encouraging them to step out of their comfort zones, and meticulously breaking down each aspect of their ski turns. The instructors take the time to explain how they can improve. In the last couple of years, my son has been the sole attendee from our family. This year, upon his return, not only did his ski technique showcase marked improvement, but he also exhibited enhanced confidence in himself. This newfound assurance is not limited to skiing; it extends to his overall ability to constructively engage and listen.

Back for the third time. My son still loves training with Ski Zenit. He asked me to sign him up for three consecutive camps this year. The staff and coaching at Ski Zenit are very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Ski Zenit to anyone who is looking at improving their ski racing.

Mon fils de 13 ans a participé à ce camp pendant 2 semaines. Il a trouvé l'endroit magnifique. Il a bien aimé les coachs et a trouvé qu'ils lui ont permis de s'améliorer. Il a beaucoup aimé l'horaire le matin mais il aurait aimé plus de choix d'activités en après-midi. Il a beaucoup aimé les chambres partagées et la possibilité de connaître de nouvelles personnes de différents endroits. Il a beaucoup apprécié les séances vidéos.

I just began skiing November 22/23 winter season and my eagerness to ski race and desire to learn the sport prompted me to enroll in this camp. This summer's opportunity to train with SkiZenit has been incredible. I'm incredibly appreciative of the coaches and team I worked with during my stay since they helped me strengthen and build my technical, physical, and mental abilities I needed to begin alpine racing.
