indoor skiing

This is the place to debate politics, global warming, and yes, even the origin of man, whatever. Simply put, if you want to argue about off topic stuff, you've found the right board. Have fun!

What do you think about indoor ski simulators?

I live in Houston, Texas, U.S.A. Mountain sports are non-existent and everything is a flight (or long road trip) away. Supply and demand dictates that gear and outfitting is expensive around here.

There used to be a gym that used an incline, covered with fake grass, to teach super basics. Ideal for locals prior to going to the mountains. It was not motorized, or mechanized, in any way...merely an incline.

Didn't do so well because that gym is out of business. Probably not the fault of the ski incline. Nevertheless, the market has spoken in one way, and it said that my area doesn't have much demand for this.

I, myself, support any way to get others hooked on this addiction.

your best bet is nordic roller skis...the ones athletes use in summer to train for skate skiing. Fischer has good (expensive) ones. If we didn't have snow here year round, I would pick up a pair.

I think the skating fitness and techniques would translate well to winter tele.
