Our goal is to offer a valuable tool to all skiers and ski coaches in order to improve their ski conditioning and stamina. A high tech path to become stronger skiers and improve their technique.

State of the art, SkyTechSport simulators allow ski instructors to teach off slope, generate excitement for the sport and get great fitness-cross training exercise at the same time. Getting on the ski simulator is going to prepare you physically to ski more volume, so you can improve your skiing significantly.

It is by far the closest thing to slope skiing! Our team of experts consists of CSIA ski instructors, Alpine ski coaches, Freestyle and Freeride coaches.
