Ski techniques

24 Apr

Nice video on YouTube about different ski technique patterns. I use all of the ones shown except for the V2 skate or “dobbeldans” (0:31 – 0:41). I use the V1 or “enkeldans” technique (0:45 – end) instead. V2 requires that you pole to both sides. Right now I feel spastic doing it. But I’ve bought these roller skis and will be working on it to be ready for next November!

As the Norwegian term suggests, the skate techniques feel a bit like dancing. And as a chronically bad dancer, I’m glad I can manage at least one of them!
