Weight, fitness, endurance and coordination training of skiers and students takes place on the school’s premises. Inhouse facilities include a gymnasium featuring trampolin and airtrack, ergo meter, weight and gymnastics room, therapy room, two tennis courts, football field, 100 m sprint track, skateboard mini ramp, slackline as well as countless bike and hiking trails at the school’s doorstep.
Training on snow takes place in the local ski resort Scuol Motta Naluns or nearby Samnaun Ischgl where skiers can use the centrally located and flood lighted competitive slope.
Various glacier skiing resorts including Stelvio, Schnalstal, Pitztal and Kaunertal can be reached in a 1 to 2.5 hour drive and represent perfect training options during springtime and autumn.
Competitive support for national and international events is organised in collaboration with the Ski Association of the Grisons. Regional competitions of athletes under the age of 16 years are overseen by the athletic department.
The training schedule is individually prepared and developed according to the needs of each student, and includes the possibility to train in smaller or larger groups. On schooldays, training unities take place on a daily basis and are coordinated with the classroom schedule. During holidays, the athletic department may organise and lead training camps upon request and need.
