What:

This is a unique opportunity to learn cross training alpine technique off snow. Rollerblade staff will be participating on site, and there will be some demo equipment available. All participants need to arrive with their own skates and protective gear (helmet, knee, wrist & elbow pads) 

Inline cross training elements include: basic balance, independent skate balance, ankle flexion, straight line speed & power, skate-ground contact, rapid direction changes, upper/lower body separation, torso control, parallel skates & knees, braking, uphill skating, downhill gliding, cone slalom, gate slalom.

The 2010 study, by University of Belgrade’s Robert Ropret, concludes that inline skating is, in fact, the ideal dry land training activity for ski enthusiasts andcompetitors alike.

Space is limited to first 25 registrants.
