CSA Staff Academy

Gemeinsam erfolgreich seit 2013

“Quality has many faces”, we live this saying because we are convinced that everyone has special and individual strengths. Promotion and integration are very important to us. Over time, many of our employees have achieved state-certified ski instructor training and have developed well and are successful in a wide variety of areas.

Silvia, how did the idea come about?

Silvia Grillitsch is more than a passionate ski instructor and athlete. She took over the CSA ski school from her father, expanded it further and loves supporting and inspiring people. With her vision and spirit, she has created a community that is characterized by values ​​such as courage, fun, passion and cohesion.

For this reason, we founded our own internal CSA Academy in 2013. With the CSA Academy, we want to provide our employees with progressive, modern training that is tailored to their respective performance levels and goals.

Every week up to 4 free trainings for all CSA employees performed by our best CSA trainers.
With our CSA training system, we have already supported many of our employees and thus made the successful completion of further education possible. Many of our employees are now also very successful in other areas and have successfully completed the Austrian Diploma in Ski Instructor Training with the support of this training.
We are particularly proud of the national and international successes of our team, especially the CSA Ladies Demo Team "Blueberries", the European Championships 2018, ISIA-VIZE World Champions and European Champions 2017 in formation driving and bronze medal winners at the European Championships in Formation Skiing 2015.
Achieving success together
Working as a team at the CSA Grillitsch Skiing School

Many members of staff at our skiing school have already completed the State ski-instructor’s diploma and have witnessed enormous development. We naturally want to support this and encourage success in various types of winter sport.

At the CSA Silvia  Grillitsch Skiing School, a large team of experienced ski-instructors awaits our employees, as well as mountain and ski-guides, who will gladly pass on their well-established expertise.

Improving your skiing technique with CSA video-coaching
CSA video coaching for staff

Using a tablet, we record motion sequences on skis and snowboards and then analyse the techniques with the help of a drawing tool. Any wrong posture or poor control of the skis can immediately be identified and worked on when played back in slow motion.

In this way, we effectively and professionally improve the technique of each individual. 

In addition, for each employee
  • CSA Employee Academy up to 4 free training courses every week, all winter long
  • Individual CSA further training and courses
  • Professional “on boarding” days for all CSA employees
