Summer roller skiing and the Snowsport England Coaching weekend in August

The August Bank Holiday coaching weekend at Hetton is only 2 months away. We will have some top roller ski coaches, led by ex-Olympian Patrick Winterton who will be taking the advanced group. Adam Pinney and Dagmar Junghanns are sharing the beginner/improver and intermediate groups. And Katya (Ekaterina Rachel) is lined up for a second advanced group if numbers warrant it (which is looking fairly likely).

Bookings are coming in for the course at a steady rate. The weekend of coaching will definitely improve your skiing technique on roller skis and on-snow, at whatever your current level. For more details, see the course information dossier. Or contact Alan who is the course organiser on behalf of Snowsport England.

Les Cavill, who has recently taken up roller skiing, has written a nice article about roller skiing (here) from the viewpoint of a newcomer to the sport.

Anyone who would like to have a go at roller skiing (club skis and boots provided) or wants to get out for some practice ahead of the August coaching weekend, please contact Alan or Alasdair.
