FAQ – Open Camps & Training Days

Can I hire equipment?
Skiers can hire skis, boots and poles at the centre, free of charge. Please ensure you have your own helmet and gloves. Skiers without these items will not be able to attend the camp and will not be entitled to a refund.

What clothing should skiers wear?
On dry slope, all skiers must have long sleeves and long trousers, as well as gloves. Tracksuit bottoms / joggers are most commonly worn with a long sleeved top or a hoodie. 

Are parents/guardians expected to stay for the duration of the training?
Parents / Guardians can leave their child(ren) in our care for the day. Upon booking, please ensure we have the correct contact details in case we need to get hold of you during the course of the day.

Is lunch included?
Skiers are expected to bring their own food & drink. This is not supplied by Precise Racing.

What is the minimum age and ski ability requirement?
We have no age restrictions on any of our camps. We expect skiers to be able to ski from top to bottom in a controlled manner and use the lift independently.

Will the skiers be split into groups?
All skiers will be analysed during their warm-up by the coaches. Factoring in ability, experience, age and friendships, the coaches will split the skiers into manageable sized groups. This allows the coaches to focus on a small number of skiers and to provide individual feedback.

Do you do any fitness / off slope activities?
During the 3-day or 4-day camps, we usually build in activities off the slope to encourage team bonding. We ask that each skier brings a pair of suitable trainers and a water bottle.

Will my child be skiing full gates or stubbies?
During the training days and camps, we set out a variety of different courses to strengthen the skier’s technique, regardless of their age. Our programme will likely include, timing, GS panels, full slalom gates, stubbies or carrots to boost the skier’s skills set, with the added bonus of our coaches’ feedback.
