Alpine race track ski training sessions
Training is suitable for active ski racers, hobby racers, skiing enthusiasts and business groups.Track ski training gives the skiers a unique possibility to experience fast alpine skiing and the thrill of track skiing and challenges you.
For skiing enthusiasts, Ski School provides a unique opportunity to get started with skiing around track-gates/poles and ski racing techniques. More experienced racers have the opportunity to practice and improve their technique. Ruka has excellent slopes for practice and professionals trainers with years of experience from coaching.
The program of each training package is tailor-made to suit the needs and wishes of each individual group, paying special attention to the skill levels and skiing backgrounds of the participants. The focus of the training session can be, for example, on training the basics of fast carving turns in downhill skiing and on a race course, and it could even include a giant slalom race with timing to round off the day. One option is to perform a video analysis on each skier’s individual technique, which provides useful insights into improving the participants’ ski technique.
Race skiing training session with Ski School Ruka is a great way of boosting the interaction and team spirit of your team in an atmosphere that is fun and athletic. The training sessions can be also arranged, for example as a refreshing part of a business trip or leisure holiday. You may also book Giant Slalom competitions for Ski Clubs and Company groups.

It is recommended to book training session well in advance. Tell us whether you want to train giant slalom track-skiing or slalom (if you have your own slalom-protections).
We may also use "short & soft" poles to improve your basic skills before heading for
long-poles and gates.
Price of the training session depends on the length of it (see private lesson prices), and
whether the track-course setting is included to the booked training time or
it is done before it.
