This skate to ski clinic assumes students have the basic skills to stride, turn, and stop on gentle hills. Building on these skills, students will learn the details of proper alpine turns with a slight downhill. The clinic will focus on the proper fundamentals for efficient and athletic alpine turns on skates. Inline skating is the best form of dry land alpine ski training, so get your next ski season off to a great start before the snow flies.
