Get Ready to Ski with an Inline Slalom Course

Using in-line skates is a fabulous way to train for skiing during the off-season.


Slalom course

Match turn rhythm and placement to terrain features

  • Gentle hill
  • Use tennis ball halves, crushed aluminum cans, cones, or chalk as

  • Course setting: w ~ 8-12 ft., h ~ 12-15 ft. (flatter
    hills need larger h to maintain speed)

  • Start with rhythmic course; with practice, set more rhythm changes
  • Lighten and tip inside foot to make each turn
  • Lift free foot or keep it on ground – try both!
