Our kids race groups are a hugely popular addition to the kids groups and a logical 'next step' for those kids who are pushing on and wish to make significant high end technical improvements as well as enjoy the competitive side of the sport.
The race groups are run by qualified race coaches Rupert Tildesley and Dave Cowell, both of whom are BASI Trainers and run the BASI Race Coaching courses for aspiring coaches. In addition groups are run by Severine Remondet, former French Team member and coach for the Val d'Isere Club des Sports as well as other race qualified instructors from Mountain Masters.
There have been many success stories from the Mountain Masters race program, with former pupils racing for the British Team and one who stood on the second step of the podium at last year's British Championships.
A typical week involves 3 mornings of training in both slalom and giant slalom and 2 mornings of racing (one slalom race, one GS race). Your instructor will often race with you. Slope fees for training and race fees are included in the cost of the week. All training sessions have video feedback as part of the break mid-lesson.
There is also the possibility to attend the British Championships in Tignes during the Easter holiday race week and last year two groups attended with considerable success.
The race groups are very popular and get booked up a long time in advance. If you are keen to join, please contact the office using the details below in plenty of time before your holiday.
A break is planned every morning for the kids to rest for 15 minutes, somewhere warm, usually in an mountain restaurant. If you want your kids to have a snack or a drink, please, think about providing them with some Euro coins.
