North Wales Rollerski Club

May 3, 2019

What a week it’s been for the new North Wales Rollerski Club! 
New to the area this year, the club has hosted a number of social rolls for the growing local rollerski community. We caught up with Tara Parks to find out more about the club and how to get involved.

"There is no shortage of locations for rollerskiing in the area with coastal promenades at Penmaenmawr to in land cycle tracks from Llanberis and even a purpose-built cycle track at Marsh Tracks Rhyl. 

The biggest obstacle facing the club has been the lack of kit with all sessions being managed through a pooling of resources from people’s personal kit. It is with great excitement therefore that we are pleased to announce that the Rollerski club has been awarded a £1500 grant from Gwynedd Council to enable us to purchase the kit needed to make rollerskiing accessible to more people! Moreover, an extremely generous donation of 17 pairs of boots and a number of ski poles from John Mordue of BASI Nordic means that we are well and truly on our way to being able to offer the opportunity of rollerskiing to a beginners and experts alike!

If you’re anything like me (and in fact a number of us), rollerskiing is a completely new sport. So whether you’ve done years on cross country skis, or never even heard of it – it doesn’t matter, we’re all in it together! Thursday evenings are ‘Rollerski Evenings’ – get it in your diaries and keep an eye on the North Wales Rollerski Facebook page to see at which location we’ll be meeting."
