For the past couple of years Rollerblade® has introduced their Skate to Ski Program in the Skiing community. Skiing and inline skating have so much in common especially when it comes to inline downhill and flowing through urban landscapes. It makes sense that skiers should skate during the off season, not only to train and keep up their skills, but to add three more seasons of fun to their life.
“I firmly believe that when it comes to cross-training for the sport of skiing, skating is a strong asset and one of my main reasons for being able to come back from an injury.” –Tommy Biesmeyer, U.S. Ski Team athlete.
Rollerblade has now created a Facebook Group for people to discuss the crossover of these sports and to connect with other like minded individuals.
