Betteshanger Park 1-day rollerski course
The 1-day course runs from 10.00-16.00 with equipment available from 09.50. Sandwiches and snacks are included.
Led by Snowsport England licenced coaches, we work hard to pace the flow of information, teach the correct body positions for rollerski techniques, and offer a selection of drills and exercises throughout the day.
The beginners' course takes you through developing balance on rollerskis, the basics of both skating and classic technique, and skills to safely slow down and stop.
The skating part of the day takes you through the essential elements of skating 'gears' – skate 1, skate 2 and skate 3 as well as stopping and turning. For classic skiing, you will learn the key techniques of diagonal stride, kick double pole and double poling.
For beginners, we assume zero previous knowledge or ski experience, but having a reasonable level of fitness and balance will help.
Our Level 2 courses focus on refining technique, where we share more exercises for developing technique, on skating and classic rollerskis. These courses are suitable for recreational and racing skiers interested in advancing technically.
