Are you ready for a new skiing challenge, do you want to push yourself harder on the slopes?

Intro to race may be just the challenge you need to move on your skiing prowess and take your skiing up to the next level.

As well as introducing you to race training, this course is about performance skiing and giving you the chance to improve your own ability to pick your line, whilst challenging yourself here at Chill Factore and the mountain. 

Our trained, qualified and dedicated coaches will teach you how to tackle different courses and terrains, whilst you grow in confidence and increase your speeds.

The sessions last’s for an hour and 50 minutes and has been expertly designed to provide you with skills and confidence through: 

  • Drills and exercises, designed to challenge. The repetition of these exercises in these sessions and personal skiing time will improve your performance.
  • Skiing a course (utilizing brushes and stubbies). 

These sessions are designed for adults only (no under 16’s please click here for Kids Race Academy) who are independent slope users and have completed the developer level course and are confident in skiing from the top of the main slope. 

Our qualified coaches will develop you in these sessions and provide invaluable advice which will take you from Intro to race training (please click here for details on race training) into a whole new level of slope action.
