Dryland Ski

Skiers and other sliding sport enthusiasts begin their sport without the ability to control their speed, and/or their direction of travel.

One problem in many of these sports is that these activities must often be performed in locations under conditions that are not easily reproducible in other locations. Hence, one’s ability to master certain skills related to the use of these devices is limited by weather and geographical constraints.

Accordingly, a need exists for a training device that simulates all of the balancing and turning movements of downhill snow skiing or snowboarding on dry, downhill surfaces.
Invention Features:

The device is equipped with a braking system that allows the user to slow down the speed of travel when the moving direction changes from forward to sideways, thereby simulating the act of slowing down on a slope by turning a ski or snowboard.

The braking effect is further enhanced when the ski or snowboard is tilted towards the uphill direction, further simulating the actual movements of skiing or snowboarding on snow. An optional steering bar may be provided with handles that are positioned ahead of the bar to simulate the planting of ski poles prior to or during a turn.

The dry land ski comes in 4 different configurations:
A: A design configured with one footboard, allowing two feet standing side by side to simulate a mono ski with steering bar.
B: A design configured with two boards, allowing one for each foot to simulate standard skis.
C: A design configured with one board, allowing two feet standing front and back to simulate a snowboard.
D: A design configured with a seat and two pedals, allowing user to ride on it.
