Learn to Roller Ski Clinics Summer 2024


What: Introduction to roller skiing, with available roller skis to use during the clinic. A 1.5-2 hour clinic on safe practices, control and balance on roller skis, and additional information on modern ski technique. 

To read more about roller skiing safely, check out this blog post from Coach Karl. 

Who: This is not a "learn to ski" lesson. We recommend participants have some experience skate skiing on snow.  This clinic reviews modern ski technique then explores how to transfer those skills (safely!) to dryland training. While the emphasis is on skate skiing, the skills addressed in the clinic will benefit either style.

What to bring: We have a limited number of skate roller skis and poles with roller ski tips. Participants will need to provide their own skate boots.  If you have roller skis and poles you are welcome to use them if you prefer.  Boots must be of NNN style binding type to fit the available roller skis. Please see the attached diagram if you are uncertain of what boot/binding type you have. Bike helmets are mandatory, and gloves are highly advised. Other safety equipment (elbow, knee pads, ect) will not be frowned upon. Mountain Shop has rental full roller ski set ups available. If you have your own roller skis or get a rental set up and just want the clinic, please still register and kindly email kelly@teacupnordic.org
