SSC Racing Alpine Program

SSC’s Alpine Program of training & racing opportunities in the Alps will return for 2024/25, is open to all club members with racing experience, and suitable for U10-U16 age groups. These training and British alpine racing opportunities are complemented by our existing domestic training weekends and race coach support at Cairngorm and other Scottish areas during the winter.

If you would like to join us for any of these camps, you want to know which camp(s) are suitable for you, or you have any queries at all, please contact Head Coach Calum Shepherd by email at

Core Camps

Autumn half-term training in Hintertux, AUT and February half-term racing in Bormio, ITA form the core program, massively subsidised by the SSC Bursary funds and representing some of the best-value alpine camps around. The bursary supports athletes attending camps on a residential basis to experience alpine racing at its best.

October Glacier Camp | Hintertux, AUT

From £775 per week (inlier)

Training Week 1: Sat 05 – Sat 12 Oct 2024
Training Week 2: Sat 12 – Sat 19 Oct 2024

Autumn on the glaciers is the perfect time to kick-start the season with dedicated training time and no races. Hintertux offers the perfect pre-season environment for learning how to go faster, adjusting tactics and building strong technique. Plus, the valley is full of great spaces for afternoon fitness, and our team base supports ski tuning & video analysis.



February Half-Term Camp | Bormio, ITA

Prices TBC

Training Week: Sat 08 – Sat 15 Feb 2025
Race Week: Sat 15 – Sat 22 Feb 2025

The English Championship races in Bormio are by far the best overseas British races of the season. With stable weather, reliable snow and a full week of BASS and minis races, it’s not to be missed. We will be training the week before the races and then supporting the Children’s Championships the following week.


Additional Camps

Further training & racing opportunities are available to suit the most committed athletes. These camps are subject to minimum numbers so please register and pay in good time so we can commit to running them.

December Pre-Christmas Camp | Kaprun, AUT


The week before Christmas is an ideal and opportune camp for some training, with the first snow of winter having fallen and ski areas being quiet before the season fully kicks off. Athletes will also get some race experience under the belt (subject to confirmation of the race calendar).
