Overview

Designed by 2-time Winter Olympian Jono Brauer, The Arc offers intensive junior ski development programs for kids who want to take their skills to the next level. Choose from our All-Mountain programs for kids aged 7yrs+ or our Alpine Racing  programs for racers aged 10yrs+. Officially recognised as a Snow Australia Alpine Pathway Program, The Arc is committed to developing your child’s ski technique in line with Snow Australia’s pathways for alpine skiing.

Designed for passionate young skiers who want to progress their skiing in a tailored program, The Arc will take your child’s to the next level in a dynamic and fun environment with The Arc’s world-class coaching team. 

Located in the charming ski destination Livigno, Italy during the northern hemisphere winter, the program delivers excellent training opportunities, and aims to ensure parents enjoy their holiday as much as the kids.

With in-depth local knowledge and partnerships, The Arc’s team offers a range of on- and off-snow experiences so that all the family will have a memorable holiday in the Italian Alps.

The

Background

The Arc is the creation of two time winter Olympian Jono Brauer and Italian native, fully certified race coach Gianluca “Pippo” Valeri.

Jono and Pippo recognised a need for a tailored ski training solution during the northern hemisphere season beyond a traditional snowsports school or seasonal program focused on developing the key fundamental skills required to develop solid skiers focussing on alpine ski racing development. They also saw the desire for families to enjoy a ski holiday together instead of sending their child off to a live-in program. And lastly, the need for parents to have fun as well.

So The Arc was created!

While the children are developing their on-snow skills, the rest of the family can enjoy a relaxing holiday in perhaps the most charming winter destination on the planet.
