    The portability of a ski simulator makes it ideal for practicing the art before actually putting on a pair of skis.  The ski simulator introduces a novice to the sport of skiing; however, it also helps an experienced skier improve his or her skills. This equipment operates indoors or outdoors. The portability makes it possible to train during any season of the year. Being able to train off-season using this training equipment is important for a professional as well as a beginning skiing enthusiast.

    Improving control, balance and strength is important to actual performance on the skis. The user accomplishes this by actually doing lessons and training drills on the ski simulator. The ski simulator duplicates actual movements made on a ski slope. The PRO ski simulator is a machine that offers the best carving simulation possible in a training environment. The user gets real world practice in movements required to perform successfully on a pair of skis. It is a ski exercise machine that improves reflexes, endurance, coordination and balance.

    Practice on a ski machine makes the movements required by the elbows, knees and entire body appear easier to perform on the snow. The skier develops his or her confidence to perform on an actual pair of skis. With this increased confidence comes an increase in safety and a lower incidence of accidents on the ski slopes. The PRO ski simulator is actually programmable to simulate a steeper or gentler ski slope. Get your own HERE! This creates a realistic ski environment in the home, gym or outside on the lawn. Approximately 500 movements or ski turns can be performed on a high quality ski simulator. This duplicates three-5-ski slope descents in a non-threatening environment. The use of a ski simulator for performing ski movements and balance exercises prevents injuries and sharpens your senses.
