    Plenty of serious nordic skiers roller ski for their dryland training. I never did, but plenty do. If you're interested, try it.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    I have been waiting for something like that to get added to gear swap for years just to take it to Ullrfest. If it happens this year I might just have to pick up a shitload of casters and hope for the best.
    They got a name for the winners in the world

    I actually did it a few times at Bryce. Is that what you're thinking of? It was fun as a weird thing to do, but not anything I think I'd get really into doing...

    I recall Chip telling me they did it at Mnut, maybe all both of the VA ski areas.

    Love the pole tap before you dropped in on that line.

    - Keep a can of silicone spay handy to prep the rollers before each descent
    - Keep the rollers clean of grass bits and grit
    - Don't roller ski when the grass is wet or dewy...they will accumulate gunk and slow you down
    - If you hit a little pothole or rock...get ready to take a BIG step and RUN with them to get back on track
    - Get elbow pads
    - Jumps are nasty...landings often put you on your face

    Never tried the NordicSkater rollerskis....seen them on people near our house a few miles from the Nordic Skater shop...all pavement usage...never seen anyone on dirt roads with them.

    I was just recently informed that Makimono has a grasski. Really hoping for an Ullrfest slalom grass race hahaha
