Warren Smith Ski Academy Runs Summer Courses On Swiss Snow

The Warren Smith Ski Academy is going ahead with its summer 2020 program based in the Italian Alpine resort of Cervinia, with skiing taking place high up on the Matterhorn glacier.

The courses take place on the summer ski area high above the resort at 3,900 meters and run for 5 days during the week, from 08.30am until 2pm. The focus is on developing pupil’s skills and confidence to improve their skiing to help with carving, steeps, short radius turns, personal development, moguls and even the foundation for powder snow conditions.

The courses include in-depth video analysis and ski biomechanics assessments that are looked at during the evenings before dinner. The teaching focuses on all of the Warren Smith Ski Academy content including, ankle flex, skier symmetry, thigh steering, left and right differences and physiology, middle body strength and pole plant plus a wide range of further content that might be needed on an individual skier basis.

Although complete beginners cannot participate, group levels start at ‘Basic’ (basic parallel turns required) to Intermediate and advanced skiers, through to experts and athlete level skiers. Group sizes are a maximum of 8 people.

Warren Smith, Director of WSSA, said:

The snow is in really great shape right now and we’re really looking forward to welcoming people to the Italian and Swiss Alps this summer. We went over there from our Verbier base last week to check out the conditions and they were perfect, plus the resort is operating as normal with new Covid-19 regulations in place to ensure skiers safety. This is a great opportunity to get out on the snow this summer, especially for anyone that missed out on the end of last season.
