The Warren Smith Ski Academy’s live Ski Technique Lab Tour has got off to a fantastic start this autumn, bringing expert technique tips to skiers across the country.
After selling out their first venues, the tour still has twelve stops left with tickets available, so be sure to snap up your tickets if you want to attend. The tour ends on October 27 in London and ticket details can be found here.
Formulated over 20 years by working with thousands of skiers, the tour sees the Warren Smith Ski Academy team bring you new exercises, GAIT analysis, foundation tests and ski technique hacks, to improve your skiing before you even touch the snow this winter.
This pre, during and post-ski development formula makes the skier biomechanically sound, reduces the risk of injury and makes for faster development when they next hit the slopes.
Now in its 6th year, the workshops will now have 3 Way Lineage (Ski Technique – Ski Biomechanics – Ski Equipment Precision) and explanations on why it’s vital for ski technique development. There is the ‘6 Way Foundation’ tests and the new Ski Plyometric Exercises.
NEW FOR 2021: Tested last year on the tour with reduced capacity due to Covid, the Academy had the chance to put people through a series of basic plyometric (involves jumping, hopping and skipping) ski-specific exercises. The results significantly helped skiers on take-off and landing side to side, within 15 minutes raising huge awareness and changes that took place on the night. This extra element will be an additional part of the October tour.
Warren Smith said: “It has been a great start with so many skiers keen to get back on the slopes again. There’s been a great buzz and for us to be meeting skiers again that want to improve before the winter and use that when they get out on the slopes is fantastic. We are literally travelling all over the country from north to south and hope to see many more skiers along the way. We will also be at The National Snow Show at the NEC on October 23 and 24 too”.
The talks conclude with an open QA session – the evening lecture allows keen skiers to hit the ground running ahead of the fast approaching winter season.
