Snowsport England 2017 roller ski courses
Improve your skiing technique (classic and skating), gain confidence, pick up loads of helpful training tips and just have a fantastic time. Boost your skills on this intensive roller ski weekend and put them into practice in a race!
LRNSC is hosting this course for Snowsport England [SSE], the only one in the south of England. It's open to everyone, whether you are beginner, intermediate or expert; whether you are a tourer, a racer, a downhiller or whether you just want to try cross-country skiing without the snow.
For LRNSC members it's a chance to start roller skiing or revitalise your skills with new coaches - often hearing things from a different instructor can give you those breakthrough moments.
Who is this for?
There'll be a first-rate coaching team and we're aiming to run the following course groups:
• Advanced – for experienced skiers who wish to refine their skills for more efficient skiing and are interested in the latest developments in technique. This group is suitable for those who are already skiing at 3* and above and interested in attaining a four or five star proficiency award.
• Intermediate - for skiers who are confident on roller skis and are skiing at 2* proficiency level. This group is for those aiming towards skiing at 3* proficiency level in both classic and skating styles.
• Beginners and Improvers group - for those with none or limited cross country/roller ski experience and are interested in progressing to one and two star level.
