Roller Skiing

Come and learn how to cross country ski at York Sport- no snow needed!

Instructors from the Yorkshire Dales Cross Country Ski Club hold regular roller ski sessions on our cycle circuit.

Roller skiing was born from cross country skiing and is often used as the basis of summer training for cross country skiers. But it is also a sport in its own right now, offering a low-impact, full body exercise that is great for core body strength. As your technique, balance and coordination improves, you will be able to clock up the miles on the superb York Sport 1km cycle circuit in either classic or skate style roller skiing.

The roller skis accurately model the on-snow versions and so provide a great way to get ready for a cross country ski trip.  Beginners are taught the classic style initially and the first lessons cover all of the basics of balance and glide on the roller skis.

Run by qualified Snowsport England Instructors, the regular Friday evening and Sunday morning practice sessions include tuition for all abilities and hire equipment to get you started.  Instruction is based on Snowsport England’s Nordic Proficiency Scheme and roller skiers can use these graduated awards to monitor their progress.

If you are looking for an enjoyable and healthy new challenge, why not contact YDCCSC to book onto a roller ski taster session?
