Intro to Rollerskiing Top Tips
For serious Nordic skiers May and June mean the start of hearing the "click, click" of poles tips on asphalt amidst birds singing and blooming flowers. Roller skiing isn't just for top athletes however. It is a great way to stay in touch with the skiing muscles and even improve balance, timing, and technique for the enthusiast skier all year round. When snow arrives, the technique feels very confident. The catch is with the word “snow”. Hardpack snow isn’t pavement and doesn’t feel the same when gliding on top of it, or…well, connecting with it. As in, falling.Moving well on rollerskis is so like being on snow that it is easy to get lulled into thinking one can hockey stop if a hazard arises. Nope. Here’s some top tips and awareness points for those getting started.
Helmets? Check. Gloves? Check. Now get out there!
We will be hosting a free event in partnership with The Mountain Shop on June 26th. Rollerskis will be available to try from their rental fleet and a intro to roller skiing clinic with be given by Mt. Hood Nordic Coaches Karl and Kelly. Space is limited- sign up and info is available HERE.
