Euro Test ISIA Test Training Zermatt

Every year Subzero Coaching offers Euro Test ISIA Test Training, dedicated to ski instructors interested in passing these races.
We structure our training programme towards these tests on multiple weeks, prior to the race.

We focus on your accurate progression. A solid acquisition of skills through out the camps allows us to develop you fully towards the highest levels of performance you can achieve.

Our approach is simple:
Build the skier > through open field tech training
Create the racer > through a progressive approach to gates.

Winter Race Training Zermatt - Cervinia

Zermatt 2024

GS Intro Camp:  11-15th March
GS Gates Camp 1: 18-22nd March
GS Gates Camp 2: 19-23rd April
ISIA Speed Test: 24th April

Training

The two weeks of gates training will have a gradual progression on technical skills and speed. We start by covering the fundamental movements, tactics and skills needed in gates. The first camp is delivered outside gates but with GS skis on, so to refine the technical skills before having to face the track.
This is one of the most underrated stage of the prep, so we made the point of separating it from the other two camps.

The Gates Camps work on a gradual progression of difficulty. Going through each stage with appropriate pace and Getting everyone's technique and "gate's eye" up to scratch for the challenge ahead.
With different slopes and gates layout we will be able to cover a wide range of needs, giving everyone the chance to push their abilities to a new level.

Off-Season Race Training

If you are looking to get serious about your race training then this is the place.
We run race training camps year round, in different locations, for skiers ready to take their performance to an all different level.

Spring Camp - May - Landgraaf (NL)

Start before everyone else, to make the difference.

On these camps we create the foundations of performance, working on skills in free skiing as well as on the race lane, using brushes and stubbies.
To make the most out of these days we decided to avoid the glacier and rather work indoor, at Snow World Landgraaf.
There we are able to put some serious quality mileage (we count turns, just like we use to do when coaching WC and Olympic athletes).

The facility in Landgraaf enables us to complete the camp with a full body check up and fitness training schedule. This means giving you the chance to keep on working on your body during the summer, specifically towards your racing needs.

Camp dates: TBC, Snow World Landgraaf

Summer Camps

We know where the extra edge can be found. A refresh in the middle of the summer, short but focused, helps massively in the retaining of the skills needed for higher performance.
We have camps available both in the Alps (Stelvio and Zermatt) and in ski domes (Landgraaf). Where we can keep on working on technical skills and physical preparation.

Camps Dates TBC June/September - Landgraaf, Zermatt

Autumn Camps

Where the skier completes the mutation to racer. On this longer camp we start harvesting the work done in the previous months, bringing together technical skills, tactical knowledge and the eye for speed.

Our Olympic Coach, Roby Bonavita, takes charge of the operations, guiding the racers through the process. Also on the field is our Fede Sollini, available as second coach for open field training as well as strength & conditioning follow ups.

Camps Dates: November/December

Winter Camps

Availability is guaranteed during the winter to all participants that want to prepare for either Speed Tests further in the season or racers with a calendar rolling in the Alps. These camps run in Zermatt (CH), Cervinia and Adelboden. Where we can guarantee stable snow conditions December to April. Through out the winter our strength & conditioning coaches will able to follow each individual according to each specific need.
