Swedish teams set for snow training and altitude camps

The Swedish national teams are embarking on an exciting season, with the women’s A-team starting their first camp in Sognefjell, Norway. This training camp will span eight days, focusing on both roller skiing and on-snow training.

Frida Karlsson and Ebba Andersson (l-r) are some of the Swedish skiers training at Sognefjell, Norway.

Following the men’s successful camp between Falun and Södertälje last week, it is now the Swedish women’s team’s turn to have a training camp. From May 29 to June 6, they will be honing their skills on snow in Sognefjell.

In a press release, National team manager Anders Byström says: 

“The first camp of the season for the women’s team is on snow in Sognefjell in Norway. We haven’t been there for a few years now. Still, it feels exciting to get back to the beautiful environment where we can get off to a good start with skiing on snow combined with many meters of altimetry on roller skis from Skjolden and up.”

The coaching team has meticulously crafted the summer and fall training camp schedule, taking into account feedback and active participation from team members. Based on the athletes ‘ requests, the plan aims to optimize training quality and coach density by alternating gatherings between the men’s and women’s teams, as well as Team BAUHAUS and the A national team.

During the Sognefjell camp, the primary focus will be technique and refining snow skills. Anders Byström explains: 

“There will be a lot of skiing and resuming the technical work and the work with details in all parts of the movement pattern on snow.”

Looking ahead, the men’s national team will get together in Åre for their next camp, while the women of Team BAUHAUS will gather in Sollefteå, marking the team’s commitment to continuous improvement and varied training locations.

The Swedish training camp schedule holds excellent promise, featuring destinations such as Åre, Sognefjell, Torsby Ski Tunnel, and even altitude training opportunities in Livigno. 

In another press release from the Swedish Ski Association, Anders Byström highlights the collaborative approach taken, stating:

“Together with the participation of the skiers, the national team coaches have laid out a plan for the summer and autumn camps. The plan is designed so that the teams sometimes split up, men and women separately, but also a division into Team BAUHAUS and A-teams respectively.” 

One common point of convergence will be the camp in Torsby, where athletes from both teams will come together for joint training days and sharpen their skills in the Torsby Ski Tunnel & Sports Center during August. Additionally, athletes will have the chance to train at altitude, an investment supported by the Swedish Olympic Committee (SOK) and set to continue for several years.

“We also invest in altitude for those who want it – through several opportunities for altitude days, both during the summer and winter. We plan to do this for several years with the support from the SOK, the Swedish Olympic Committee,” says Byström.

The sprint men will receive focused attention with dedicated camps in Meråker and Falun during the late summer and autumn, building upon the success of last year’s sprint setup. 

National team coach Anders Högberg shares the rationale behind the division, stating: 

“We sometimes continue to split up to be able to spend extra time and file improvements for the sprint men. We will also run two camps this year focusing more on sprinting.”

Outlined below is the preliminary training camp plan for the season, subject to adjustments:

  • Falun-Södertälje camp, men: May 21
  • Sognefjell, A-team (women): May 30
  • Åre, men: June 14
