|Skate to Ski & Dryland Training Workshop||Back to Calendar|
Improving your skiing is hard! It demands an accurate and relevant focus on what you are trying to change, heaps of repetition in a consistent environment, and quality feedback. Adding to this challenge is the dilemma that we never seem to have enough time for ourselves to practice. What if you could use the pavement to improve your skiing during the warmer months?
Learn how to use skating to improve your skiing. We will do activities that highlight balanced gliding, powerful carving, and fluid turning. Participants should have some prior skating experience (beginner to advanced skaters are welcome). The group will skate on flat pavement. The clinic will incorporate drills and obstacle courses that utilize cones and other equipment.
A helmet is required (bike helmet or skate helmet) along with skates. Protective pads are highly recommended. Wear comfortable clothes you can move in, and bring water and snacks.
Improve your fitness for skiing and snowboarding with dryland training exercises tailored for all ability levels and paced according to your interests.
The session will show you how to use the PSIA-AASI Fitness for Skiing and Snowboarding manual [free download available at thesnowpros.org] to develop a customized training program. The clinic will adapt elite training strategies for recreational and professional skiers and snowboarders to compliment your personal goals and on-snow performance aspirations.
We will review basic fitness goal-setting strategies, learn activities for making training fun and effective, and then practice building pre-season routines.
Please wear comfortable clothes and footwear you can move in, and bring water and snacks.
