It's My Sport, My Dry Slope - Holly Morrisey

August 9, 2017

Another one of our It's My Sport, My Dry Slope stories, in case you don't know this is what it's all about:

We are aware that grassroots snow sports in the UK invariably revolves around artificial snow or dry slopes, but that doesn't just have to be the beginning, it can be a life-long love affair! 

We're keen to feature people making use of their local dry slope on a regular basis. We want to hear from a diverse background of users from across all disciplines (Ski, Board, Nordic, Disability) young and old. It would be great to have stories from recreational participants, instructors or coaches, competitors and people who work in the sport.

Squats & Snow

August 2, 2017

Athletic Development Wales and Snowsport Wales have joined forces to ensure that all youth athletes have the opportunity to become physical prepared for the slopes. And in addition to the ongoing work with our young athletes, Oli Trotman from ADW is giving us some pointers on getting ourselves ready for the slopes.

Here's Oli...

"I’m really pleased to be leading the strength and conditioning programme with Snowsport Wales and with the 2017 Summer Training Camp at Landgraaf Indoor Snow Centre just around the corner the focus of the camp from a physical preparation perspective will be joint mobility and movement quality. The ability to move efficiently as well as the ability to produce and absorb force forms the foundation for the development of a host of abilities such as speed, power and even endurance.
