Skiers put “roller skis” to good use, Woodward at Copper summer 2013

June 19th, 2013 by

Woodward at Copper‘s 19.4K square-foot Barn re-opened on Saturday, complete with a half-million dollars worth of renovations. As part of the renovation, all Snowflex surfaces were replaced with Skatelite—the common surface used on skateboard mini- and vert-ramps. How do skiers shred on that material, you ask? Answer: Woodward’s exclusive line of park skis on wheels.

Shredding on wheels may sound tricky, but in fact, users all comment on the skis’ ease of use. Visiting pros agree: Training on Skatelite is more efficient than skiing on the Snowflex. The video above gives you a glimpse of coaches and campers throwing down using the new system.

The Barn now sports an additional 4,000 square feet of multi-level platforms—there, you’ll find the latest in progression and teaching tools, all designed to help you take your shred skills to the next level. Additional renovations include a small booter into a new foam pit, allowing for the development of beginner park skills. Campers will also be able to take their new tricks to the snow via the Summer Central Terrain Park, packed with sweet jibs, jumps, bonks and more.
