The International Ski Mountaineering Youth Camp, Lienz- Austria

During the first weekend of December, 4-7th December 2014, the town of Lienz in Osttirol, Austria, hosted the International Ski Mountaineering Youth Camp. Such an important event would not have been possible without the help of the Austrian national federation – ASKIMO,  DAV - the German federation together with the city of Lienz, the region of Osttirol and their tourism offices. Moreover the ISMF would like to thank  Dynafit and RIAP-Sport for supplying equipment and PIEPS for  organising ARTVA training on Sunday. 

The camp saw the participation of 49 young athletes and several supporters from 11 countries - Azerbaijan, Burgaria, Germany, Great Britain, Austria, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic and Turkey. A truly fantastic result!

Under the expert direction of mountain guides and with the participation of the Ismf Ambassador, Spanish skimo world champion Mireia Miro Varela, the young ski mountaineers followed an intense programme with sections on theory, practical training, race technique and ending with a fun race.

Perhaps the camp hosted some future skimo champions!
