In short

The State Alpine Skiing Diploma is recognized as one of the most demanding in the world. This reputation is explained by the high level of technical requirement and physical aptitude required from the first tests, and in particular that of the technical test. The Pro Outdoor Academy supports you in the preparation of this diploma of excellence.

Our Technical Test Preparation & Preparatory Cycle course allows you to acquire the essential fundamentals to pass the technical test, the entrance test for the DE in Alpine Skiing.

As part of this training, you will have the opportunity to confront the mountains and the field immersion while continuing your intensive training in the technical test over a full season. Once the technical test has been validated, you will integrate the preparatory cycle module.
