Lukas is driving UC as a team into direction which does not rely only on competition results, but most importantly also on huge amount of fun we have when we ski and progress together.

Our UC apprentice proved very fast that believing in fresh blood is always a great decision. All our team riders love Fandas fresh riding style as much as technicality on rails. You will rarely see Fanda going back home from a snowpark earlier than you!
Ondra’s active freeski career was one huge pile of style and his game is still right there. He was one of the first mid european riders learning dubs back in the days but then decided to stick to smoothness rather then hopping on a serious comp train. Ondra supports other UC coaches as backup when necessary
Max, frenchie in our team, is here to ride with kids on all levels and motivate them both with his riding and knowledge of our sport. He sleeps in his self-made RV in winter and is our nr.1 cook too.
For Pity is skiing passion – of course, his motivation is to be like his 91yo grandpa who is still active skier. His biggest satisfaction is when he can share experience with other guys and then see their progress.
In 2010 our headcoach Lukas Mikula decided to switch from a “always on the road” mode into “Laax as a base” mode. Falling in love with this place was not difficult and so since our arrival we call this gem in the middle of Alps our winter home. We truly love Laax snowpark and we will always support original and hard work of local shapers. Also getting to Laax is extremely easy just as traveling to competitions all over Europe. For us, Laax is the best place on this planet to progress your skiing. We ski here between beginning of dezember and mid april.
When Laax season is over, there is always hunger for more fun. After many years of traveling, we found our spring heaven in Mammoth. UC croo moves to California for three weeks every year to enjoy deserved chill time in the soft snow, sunny days and good life. We ski in Mammoth just after Laax season is over.
Mid summer skiing in Europe? We choose Zermatt for similar reasons as we choose Laax as a winter base - super hardworking shapers croo, great long flowy park and a lift as long as the snowpark. It also lies almost 4000m high. We do not need anything else in the summer. Two weeks sometimes in july is Zermatt time for us.
This might sound surprising for some, but our reasons why we pick Kunertal as our autumn destination are pretty clear. After going to cloudy Hinterux for over a decade where the sun hides every day really soon and trying out fancy Stubai in 2015 with 15 minutes+ lift waiting times not just on weekends, Kauni totally got us in 2016 autumn. This little glacier with a relaxed atmosphere and spot on shaping is a perfect fit for our way of coaching. You say "there is no big kickers?" We say “we don’t need them to have fun in autumn.”

United Coaches is a sports club where talented and motivated skiers from all over Europe meet to progress their skiing. We, coaches at UC are here for our riders to make their dreams and wishes come true while trying to keep the risk of injuries as low as possible.
We catter for those who see themselves as Olympic heros but those who just wanna produce the sickes photos and videos to show their family and homies are welcome with same opened arms. We are not standard coaches as you know them from other ski teams, those who are just saying how to pop higher and how to spin more. We see us as guides in freeski life showing the way. We are here also to drive our kids to the mountains and then home, to cook for them, to help them with school when necessary, to make photos and videos of them, to laugh with them and to be friends on and off the mountain. In our eyes, this is what skiing should be about - fun with friends.
We do not coach on short term basis and joining the team requires full commitment to skiing. If you are looking for “one week coaching” we will be happy to direct you to coaches or camps which will be happy to work with you. If you feel like skiing is THE thing in your life and you would like us to help you form your way through our vision of skiing, feel free to contact us.
