On the five session course you'll learn the basics of classic technique [diagonal stride] on the first three sessions then skating will be introduced for the last two, focusing on balance and co-ordination.
If you're a novice roller ski and want to improve your specific skills you can book 'any 5 sessions tuition only' and choose which ones you'd like to attend. You will need to hire equipment if you don't have your own.
The group may include those who have done a previous roller ski session or have cross country skied on snow, as well as those with no previous experience.
10.00-12.00 Intermediates coaching - Classic technique
For intermediates the session will be tailored to participants' needs and cover the full technique range. The aim will be to help you ski better, more efficiently and with less (wasted) effort. This is for competent roller skiers who want to refresh/refine/improve their skills. Limited equipment hire is available - please book as soon as possible so we can meet your needs.
1300-1500 optional Busway roller ski tour
An informal, social/training ski for Club members & free of charge but please register so we know you're staying on for this or just coming for the tour.
Skiers must be able to ski safely and competently without a Snowsport England coach present and have their own equipment. Direction, distance and a coffee stop are agreed by the participants.
