How do I cross train for skiing?


Inline skating can meet most skiers' cross training needs. Add inline skates to a parking lot with a slight incline for a great place to repeat slalom turns. Moderately steep hills (and an experienced skater) are great for hop turn practice. Or blaze down your local “rail-trail” to give your body and its most important muscle (the brain) a workout.
