Everton's Under-21s flew out to Austria on Tuesday morning to begin a week-long warm-weather training camp.
The young Blues made the journey to Obertraun National Sports Centre, where they will also work at high altitude in a bid to get ready for the new campaign.
Leaving Finch Farm at 4.30am, the players flew from Manchester to Munich before travelling to the picturesque base via coach.
David Unsworth's 27-man squad consists of much of last season's Under-21 side, including the likes of Tyias Browning, Brendan Galloway, Ryan Ledson, Kieran Dowell and Gethin Jones, who all made their senior debuts in 2014/15.
The Club have frequented the mountain village of Obertraun often in recent years, with the first-team also regular visitors to the popular Alpine facility.
Roberto Martinez's troops are due to return to Finch Farm on 6 July ahead of their own summer training schedule.
In the meantime, evertonfc.com will be with the young Blues throughout their stay in Austria, bringing daily updates and videos via evertontv, the Club's YouTube channel and other social media platforms.
