HPC Skills Academy - Train Like A Pro

For the ambitious skier - HPC SKILLS ACADEMY: It’s that one step up from your regular on-snow experience where you get to ‘train like a pro’ athlete.  Ever wondered how the elite become the best in their sport?  HPC Skills Academy takes you through and teaches ‘best practice’ to push yourself harder than you’ve pushed yourself before. Our training sessions are especially geared for resort guests who are ‘The ambitious skier’!


The HPC Skills Academy training sessions are defined by the following:

  • Target audience: The ambitious and comfortable skier who is looking to be taken care of.

  • Individual training: To maximise training outcome, we coach 1 on 1. In case you have a skiing buddy with similar abilities, you can bring him/her along as well, altough up to a maximum of three skiers.

  • Video analysis: Video analysis is an integral part of our daily training routine.

  • Training environment: Our training is skill orientated and if necessary, we use the Leogang training stadium to set brushes or even gates to assist with your technical progression.

  • Gates training: Of course you can also train with us to improve your racing skills.

  • Recovery: After the training is before the training. We will run a recovery session at the HPC Leogang that you are back to full strenght the next day.

  • Inclusive training approach: We first meet at the HPC Leogang to discuss the training content based on your desired training outcome. Yes, we discuss the content with yourself in order to optimize the training enviroment.
    • YOUR possible session goal → OUR possible training approach
      Improve my GS race technique → GS gates training, GS drills

  • Ski Testing: Have you ever been left wondering which ski is best to rent to suit your ability? Which one should you buy as you challenge yourself to the next stage of downhill or off-piste?  With this program, you can rent 3 different skis across our program, we will help you test each ski and decide which one is best for your ability and goals.  You will also receive tutorial on tuning your own skis, waxing.

"The coaching team at HPC is committed to my long-term development and success. I love the structure and professional approach to 12-month programming and the training set-up at Leogang, which guarantees great training opportunities with top European athletes."
Vanessa Mahon (racing parent)
"My daughter Sophie attended the SSA Northern Hemisphere Camp in Leogang, Austria for the third consecutive year this January to April. The SSA camp really works well for the athletes because the training mountain, the new HPC dryland centre, the athlete accommodation and the schooling are all situated within close proximity to each other. In addition, the expert coaching has helped Sophie to progress in her ski racing with focus on individual areas. This approach has encouraged Sophie to push out of her comfort zone everyday."
