The training concept is based on the well-respected Austrian curriculum used in the context of the national training programme for alpine coaches and certified ski instructors. Athletes of the Austrian National Ski Team are taught in accordance with this concept in order to perfect their skills. These athletes have been demonstrating their strengths in the World Cup for decades and their success confirms the functionality of the concept.
On the basis of this curriculum, Austria Racing Camps has developed its own success orientated philosophy. It is continuously optimised and perfected by both, the coaches of Austria Racing Camps and the Competence Centre. The development of the concept considers the experience gained by World Champions and World Cup winners, members of the National Team, Austrian demonstrators for Interskis and the St. Christoph Bundessportheim.
We endeavour support our athletes on the highest level. In this respect, a perfect atmosphere is the ultimate prerequisite. This is the reason why our athletes stay in 4-star hotels which are all located right next to the ski-lift in Austria’s best ski regions with guaranteed snow, such as Kuehtai, Hintertux Glacier, the Olympic Region Axamer Lizum, as well as the Alpenpark Neuss.
We are very proud of our close cooperation with qualified partners of the ski world such as Atomic, Salomon, Head, Fischer, Swix, Ziener and Energiapura.
Austria Racing Camps was founded by Hugo Nindl in 1975. As overall Slalom World Cup winner, two times Professional World Champion, six times Austrian Junior Champion and nine times Austrian Champion, he knew exactly how to promote young talents at an early stage. Since 1986, Hugo Nindl has been supported by his son Oliver Nindl. Initially, only summer camps were offered. However, due to the high demand and the success that had been achieved, winter and autumn camps were soon on hand as well. In the meantime, the coaches of Austria Racing Camps are at the athlete’s disposal every day throughout the entire year.
With the launch of the traditional Classic Camps, Austria Racing Camps laid the founding stone for the most successful racing sports programme worldwide. Elite Camps, Private Camps and the Racing Team have been added to the programme. The new products were established at the request of the coaches, because they wanted to support their athletes on a more individual and more intensive basis.
During the nearly 40 years Austria Racing Camps we were growing to a big international family. Many of our former athletes are coming back to ARC already with their children or grand children. We are very proud to look on a big list of winners in Olympic Games, World Championships, World Cup, Europa Cup, Far East Cup, Nor-Am Cup, National Championships, Whistler Cup, Trofeo Topolino, …
