SkiMaster, an indoor snow sports training center based in Riga, prepared a fantastic New Year gift for Latvian ski-lovers. It has just moved into a new and bigger place, and is ready to get one more SkyTechSport ski simulator. They bought the first Ski & Snowboard Simulator to both teach amateur skiers and snowboarders and hold regular indoor training sessions for racers of Latvian national ski team.
'I had training sessions on SkyTechSport Simulator for two months before the season. And when I first came to the training camp in the mountains, I felt at onсe that my skiing technique and stand have advanced significantly. My balance has also improved, — and this is really important for a snowboarder. All that was due to training on the simulator. Thanks a lot for that amazing opportunity to get better and win!'
Athletic results came before long and were remarkable: Lelde Gasuna won the FIS Slalom Race in Rukatunturi, Finland, and Latvian snowboarder Toms Vasins was the 3rd in Europe Snowboardcross Cup in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
'I trained at SkiMaster center before the winter, and my goal was to perfect carving technique and be in a good shape before the ski season. In my opinion, these trainings open up new possibilities for improving ski technique and correcting different nuances. You can make the same movement a hundred of times, which is not possible on the slope. To add to that, all the movements are much more visible without the ski gear, and the instructor explains and corrects even the smallest details. Thank you very much!'

SkiMaster celebrates its one-year anniversary in a month. Over just one year the club has become truly popular: besides amateur skiers, they have members of Latvian national ski and snowboard teams as clients, — the athletes found training of SkyTec ski and snowboard simulators very useful.
'I train regularly on ski simulators at SkiMaster. I think this simulator magically helps improve basic elements of skiing technique, perfect all element of carving technique, and also be in a great shape before and during the ski season. There's not always enough time with good weather conditions to train on the slope. In 15-20 minutes on this ski simulator you can get the same loads as during the whole training day on the slope.'
Valts Rutkis, ski intructor
'So, I've been skiing for 3 years, and only recently tried the SkyTech simulator. This is FABULOUS! Now I have an all-year-round ski season! The technique is improving much more quickly than on the slope, it might also be due to my trainer and me (in the mirror), we can both see me skiing.
The simulator in designed and constructed very well. The motor drives control system creates the full identity of the skiing on the slope, even the fun is the same! There are not many things in the world actually that can lift me up above the coach – but SkyTech simulator managed to do it!'
Robert, amateur skier
