Yesterday I videoed two of my girlfriends skate skiing for the first time. Skate skiing can be such a humbling experience even for the most athletic types. My recommendation to you, if you are interested in trying is to get a lesson from a professional and to be open to trying it at least a dozen times before you give up. It is frustrating until you get it… get the feeling of gliding through the snow. It is definitely a full body work out and at elevation I believe it is a workout and a half at minimum. The folks I observe on the hill all must be drinking from the fountain of youth. It is truly a remarkable sport.
Here is my first videography. The subject is this phenomenal sport with some lovely people. Both the skiing and the videos are going to get better this season so stay tuned!
