Inline skating has been a great way to cross-train for skiing for years. Many of us here at Rollerblade® are also lifelong skiers. We challenged ourselves to take what has always been an informal way for us to maintain ski-ready fitness, and transform it into a training program that truly mirrors the movements and skills used in skiing. We teamed up with our friends at the Professional Ski Instructors of Amarica® and U.S. Ski and Snowboard to build out a program based on proven methods of training.
The result is a series of videos and this companion guidebook. The program is designed as a progression of Phases. In Phase 1, you’ll cover basic skills that ensure you’re ready to progress. Phases 2-4 get into true cross-training for skiing. Many of these drills are derived from proven methods of ski training drills used by the PSIA and the U.S. Ski Team. We hope you’ll find this program as fun to try out as it was for us to build. And if you’re able to progress through the entire program, you will absolutely be in the best ski-ready shape possible for next winter.
An Android version of the app will be released soon.
