Why You Should Do Diagonal Skiing On Rollerskis

FasterSkierOctober 8, 2004

For decades I have been approached by skiers that are asking me asked me why I suggest doing diagonal skiing on rollerskis. They have been told that – “it’s bad for your technique” and that they should avoid it.

Here are some reasons why it’s good for you, as well as what you need to work on to reap the benefits from this training method.

My approach is that diagonal skiing on rollerskis is great for developing both MaxVO2 and technique, if you know what you are doing and what you should be working on. Good skiers will benefit more from doing this than beginners and intermediate skiers. The good thing is that everyone can learn to do this right and benefit tremendously from it — just pay attention.
