This is how the Godfather of steep skiing used to train in the off season, what do you think?

Well, he's not engaging the edges before the fall line, so he must not have much skill.  :eek  J/k.

 

In the U.S., a lot of the places that might be good for this in some ways are places where impact, regulations, and safety might prevent it, imo.

 

Scree skiing in sneakers/hiking boots and Nordic running on very steep slopes are both great crosstraining though imo.

If you are talking about a hot wax hair removal, I would definitely do my ass before the rocks do it for you.

Maybe it's just a typo but Sylvain's last name is SAUDAN.
