Summer Camp Fun at Landgraaf

August 9, 2018

At the start of August, Snowsport Cymru Wales Academy and Welsh Squad team up with Dragons Alpine to run our biggest summer training camp to date.


With four days of training on the refrigerated indoor snow slopes of Landgraaf, Holland, the athletes and coaching team were grateful to keep cool (at -5c) compared to the heatwave outside at 37c - it certainly was a contrast. 

40 skiers from across the UK joined the camp which focussed on developing basic skills, gaining experience running gates, developing a good base of strength and conditioning as well as having a whole load of fun. The athletes were joined by 7 coaches, including our strength and conditioning coach Josh Dragone (a great name to join this set up!) along side house mum and team building leader Georgina. 

In addition to the miles of skiing, hundreds of steps & jumps in the fitness sessions, one of the highlights of the camp was the team building session where Georgina led the group (athletes, coaches and parents) in a group musical performance. We expect the video to be released shortly and recording contracts to follow, but if not then we had a bunch of laughs doing the daily practice prior to performance - Ho Hey! 

So, what did we get from the camp: 

210,000 turns 
105,000 gates hit 
33,600 minutes on snow 

Now we just need one of these facilities in Wales!
