Movement Analysis Virtual Monoski Clinic
The Ultimate Recipe for the Perfect Turns
Sunday, March 21, 2021, 4:00-5:30pm EST
Everyone can benefit from advice from qualified instructors and coaches, and from past and present competing athletes. In fact, you never know when you’ll get the “aha” moment that will help you correct a little something in your technique, or inspire you to try something completely different that may contribute to creating those perfect turns.
In this virtual clinic, our experts return and will cover the five fundamentals of alpine skiing, and support the conversation by reviewing and commenting on videos. You will learn how the create the perfect turns expertly blending skidding, steering, edge angle, inclination and angulation, speed, and timing on a variety of terrain and snow conditions. As we review videos together, our experts will offer technical tips, constructive insights, and recommendations that will help you rethink your technique and give you things to work on. Come prepared with questions for our experts, and submit a video no later than March 16th, 4pm EST. For more instructions to submit a video contact Pascale Savard.
This event is a must for adaptive monoskiers of all levels, instructors, volunteers, and anyone interested in the world of adaptive skiing.
This is the last virtual clinic that we will offer this winter and follows the very successful Virtual Après MonoSki Clinic and A Perfect MonoSki for Every Body. For recording of those clinics, and more resources discussed at the clinics, click here.
Stay tuned for more clinics this spring when we explore handcycles of all kinds, and offer tips and advice for when you feel ready to demo, purchase or apply for a grant for your own machine. More information to follow on that.

TESSIER designs, produces and commercializes the widest range of outdoor adaptive sports equipment with more than 25 years of innovation at the service of sitskiing and sport for everyone. Our products have been developed to give a maximum of pleasure, performance and independence to disabled people. When the equipment allows a sitskier to have the same independence and the same performances as his family or friends who ski with him, the idea of disability disappears and the goal is reached. Some skiers won’t be able to ski alone. For them the goal is to make the mountain access easier and to give them a maximum of pleasure and independence.
