Develop your technique

At our weekly video training sessions, our trainer will film your skiing technique and give you a detailed video analysis of it. Video training is particularly useful to somewhat experienced skiers who are looking for detailed guidance in correcting and improving their skiing technique.

Video training sessions are arranged weekly during the winter season. The duration of each session is 45 minutes and the maximum number of participants is 10 people.

Our trainer will analyse the skiing technique of each participant and give immediate, practical feedback to help you correct your technique if needed.

I addition to this, the video material will be analysed and based on the analysis our trainer will send you a more detailed technique analysis within 24 hours of the training.

The video training sessions are also available for groups (e.g. work wellbeing) and can be arranged anywhere around the capital area at a time that suits you!
