Euro Test ISIA Test Training Zermatt
Every year Diamonds Training Centre offers Euro Test ISIA Test Training, dedicated to ski instructors interested in passing these races.
We structure our training programme towards these tests in multiple parts. During the season we have dedicated sessions with a gradual technical progression. We start with free skiing technique on GS skis, in order to guarantee the best performance base. Only after we start a progressive approach to the gates, with tactics on lines, course inspection routine and so on.
We organize two weeks of full immersion race training, 5 days a week, all day. To put together all the previous training and get ready for the race!

Winter Race Training in Zermatt – Cervinia
For the season 2018/19, we run the two weeks full immersion from the 1st of April onwards.
Training will also be possible on the days straight before the Zermatt ISIA Test, on request. The organizing body of the ISIA speed test also allows free practice on the course the day before the race. For any help in booking onto the race get in touch with us.
The two weeks of gates training will have a gradual progression on technical skills and speed. We start by covering the fundamental movements, tactics and skills needed in gates. Getting everyone’s technique and “gate’s eye” up to scratch for the challenge ahead.
With different slopes and gates layout we will be able to cover a wide range of needs, giving everyone the chance to push their abilities to a new level.
The training slopes will be on the Cervinia ski area, easly accessible also from the Zermatt side.
Head Coach for the two weeks will be our favorite race coach: Roby Bonavita. A life spent coaching athletes of every level, from national to world cup circuit. Roby is also an expert in ski instructor training, preparing a number of candidates each year for Eurotests across the Alps.
Co-coach for the event is our Federico Sollini, available for guided practice outside gates and extra video analysis if required.
The training weeks are set with one single day apart.
This is to allow recovery and also maximize the time at disposal (keeping accommodation and lift pass costs under control!).
The second training week ends on the 19th April to allow one or two days of rest before the free/unsupervised practice held by the ISIA Speed Test organizers in Zermatt, prior to the test dates.
