Register Now for Upcoming Skate-to-Ski Events
There’s still time to Skate-to-Ski (STS) your way into winter fitness, with regions across the country hosting inline skating events (see below).
Inline skating is a great way to hone your on-snow skills while getting in better shape for hitting the slopes. According to former PSIA Alpine Team member and avid inline skater Heidi Ettlinger, the Skate-to-Ski program provides several benefits, including:
- A closed skill environment for perfecting skills with heaps of repetition in a short period of time.
- A format that allows for developing contemporary coaching language and encouragement, using external versus internal cues.
- Comprehensive programming which, when combined with PSIA-AASI’s Fitness for Skiing and Snowboarding Guide, inspires those who may be hesitant to skate to come be part of the action.
