Course Setting

Course setting is done with the utmost respect for ski racing, and safety. Courses are set using FIS and USSA guidelines, and all distances between gates are measured, to ensure quality training. Ski racing should be fun, and having good courses where you can improve is a priority at PV Alpine.

Video

The latest digital video, and software programs are used to show you how you are skiing. In depth video sessions of only 5 athletes are held after training. Our coaches take extra care and time to help you improve by providing images to what we are saying on the hill. When you are all done with your training we put all of the training runs on a DVD so that you can watch your skiing when you are at home. PV Alpine is a pioneer in instant video feedbalc, and we have cameras that are linked to ipads so you can instantly watch your training run when you cross the finish. We use an application on the ipad that allows your coach to watch video with you and go frame by frame, use slow motion, or draw on the screen. This is an incredibly powerful tool and great way to help you improve at a faster rate. When you are all done with your training we put all of the training runs on a DVD so that you can watch your skiing when you are at home.
