Skate- Ski Lessons
Skate-skiing, also known as freestyle, is a newer, faster technique where the skis (mostly) remain in a V-shape. The skis are waxed with a glide wax over their entire length, so the skis are faster than classical skis. Force is generated by pushing the edges of the ski against the snow, which is a more powerful motion than classical skiing and is therefore much faster. Skate-skiing requires the ability to balance on one ski, and is therefore easier for those who are athletic and/or have previous skiing experience. Trails groomed for skate-skiing are smooth and wide, and in most cases skate-skiing is only done on groomed trails.
