Skate skiing, also known as freestyle, is a high-intensity winter sport that uses a unique technique for an aerobic, full-body, low-impact workout. This workshop introduces you to basic skate-ski technique, including weight transfer, edging, timing, V1, V2, and V2-alternate styles, and poling. We will also review equipment, waxing, training, trails and trail etiquette, first aid, and safety. You are responsible for your own equipment (rent skate skiing packages at the U's Campus Recreation Services or other local sporting goods stores).
