To Live And Breath For Skiing

May 7, 2020

New locations with SkytechSport indoor ski simulators appear almost every month, with the growing community of skiers and snowboarders who don’t want to restrain their training to a season that lasts mere several months. Our VR skiiing machines were also installed at SkiСosmos in Vancouver, so that everyone who lives nearby could try the real virtual skiing.

SkiCosmos was founded by two outdoor lovers, travelers that are tough to find behind a desk. Gianna Bernardi and Apostolos Dedas live and breathe for skiing, they say they work hard and play hard.

 

Gianna is a well rounded athlete: she’s been into track and field for over 10 years and is a black belt 5 Dan Taekwondo Coach who competed with the Greek National Taekwondo team in World championships; she loves Mountain Running, ski mountaineering & equestrian showjumping. She has experienced a lot that the world has to offer, but Gianna admits that the mountains are where she feels most at home. This love at first sight was the reason she became an ISIA Ski Coach and a CSIA level 3 Ski Instructor. Being a strength & conditioning specialist, she’s positive that building a solid base is the key to preventing injuries and improving performance.

 

 

Apostolos Dedas is also an experienced ski coach, but also an Avalanche Safety Instructor, a CPR/AED Instructor and… an Equestrian Instructor! All that has given Apostolos the opportunity to transfer his knowledge to the public in a unique and interactive way. He’s a Showjumping National team member.

 

Apostolos sees his life as an adventure. He loves freeride and enjoys every moment on the snowy slopes. Leading SAR missions under the U.N. has been his special operations duty for the last 20 years. He has also been a Special Rescue Operations (SRO Vancouver) liaison officer and board member and become the author of 2 autobiographical writings.

 

 

Where There’s No Off Season

 

The passion of the founders has turned into an innovative virtual skiing business concept that aims to bring the Vancouver ski community together. SkyTechSport indoor ski simulators are a valuable indoor ski training tool to all skiers and ski coaches that improves their ski conditioning and stamina — a high tech path to become stronger skiers and improve their technique. They allow teaching off slope, generating excitement for the sport and getting great fitness-cross training exercise at the same time.

The team of SkiCosmos’ experts consists of CSIA ski instructors, Alpine ski coaches, Freestyle and Freeride coaches.
