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.
