Our main training venue is Pozza di Fassa which is a 5-minute drive from the athlete’s apartments. We also train at other resorts such as Passo San Pellegrino, Carezza, and Pampeago, all within a 30-minute drive. It’s important to train on as many different training venues as possible to prevent stagnant skiing. The Dolomites offer a wide variety of free skiing and training venues. Having the ability to choose a venue based on the snow, slope, and how it’s going to affect our desired goals for the day is a luxury that most academies and teams do not have.
We race primarily in Italy, but also travel to nearby countries such as Austria, Germany, Slovenia and France.
