The Arc’s Alpine Racing Development Programs are for shredders aged 10yrs+ who have the need for speed! Focused on honing ski racing skills in GS gates, as well as Slalom and some Ski X, this is an intensive race-specific training program for kids who want to take their speedster skills to the next level.

Athletes will train with highly accomplished and skilled coaches who, themselves have achieved at exceptional levels in ski racing including World Cup and Olympic athletes.

Program dates, cost and inclusions are as follows:



Designed by two-time Winter Olympian Jono Brauer, The Arc’s Alpine Racing Program is designed in alignment with Snow Australia’s current pathways framework for the development of young racers.

During the intensive Alpine Racing Program, junior racers will hone their ski racing skills in GS gates, as well as some Slalom and Ski X, while working on their core skills outside of the gates to ensure they have all the foundations needed to dominate on race day.

With many national teams including the Italian, Swiss and Finnish teams choosing Livigno as their training venue, we can attest to Livigno being one of the best training venues in the world. Furthermore, the support from the Livigno ski areas of Mottolino, Carosello 3000 and the local tourism board in providing exceptional training opportunities is unrivalled.

As a professional skier, Jono travelled the world in search of ski resorts that would provide such tailored training opportunities. Few could deliver. Livigno’s commitment to The Arc’s program is unlike anything we have seen. Read on to learn why:

  • Unrestricted access to Mottolino and Carosello 3000 mountains; both of which form part of the wider ‘Livigno’ ski resort. 30 lifts and over 110kms of on piste skiing, plus endless valleys of lift-accessible off-piste terrain.
  • Livigno has a lift capacity of 50,000 people per hour. Considering the town has a maximum capacity rate of 13,000 people, even in peak season lift queues are minimal. Add to this that The Arc takes place during an off-peak time (January), you are almost guaranteed minimal wait times.
  • Dedicated Alpine Racing (GS) training lift for The Arc:
    • From resort open to close on nominated training days, The Arc will have a dedicated training lift for GS (Alpine Racing), meaning more gate training in one day than you could normally achieve in a week.
    • A variety of GS training hills, providing multiple variations in length and difficulty.
  • Access to two Ski/Rider-X courses of varying difficulty:
    • Options for purpose-built additions specific for The Arc’s training program requirements.
  • Access to the Mottolino Snowpark (Mottolino is one of Livigno’s resort areas):
    • The Mottolino Snowpark has been regarded as the best snow park in Italy for 15+yrs, and has been voted the best in Europe 3 times (most recently in 2017). The park has 4 lines from S to XL and is 800 meters long. Mottolino has hosted some of the biggest European Slopestyle events including The Red Bull Nine Knights, Burton European Open, World Rookie Fest amongst others.
