While working as Performance Director for the British Ski & Snowboard Teams I recognized the potential of the Skier’s Edge as an ideal ski-specific training tool for our British athletes. So when the opportunity arose to distribute the Skier’s Edge in Britain, I jumped at the chance. The Skier’s Edge is ideally suited for our market because the typical British skier only gets one or two weeks on snow each year. The Skier’s Edge physically prepares you for skiing, sparing you those initial days of aching legs.
