It IS Possible to Ski in the Heart of Perth
Every Tuesday from 12 pm, Cross Skating Australia hold a social event with rides along the Swan River, and these fun afternoons are FREE.
Roller skiing is like Cross Country skiing but without the snow, and is therefore perfect for our climate.
You can experience this full outdoor fitness workout and get to see Perth in a novel way - on skis!
Great fun in a warm climate
If you do not have your own equipment, the equipment is available for hire for $30, and at this event you can mix with others who enjoy skiing without snow.
Hire the equipment
They also have coaching for individuals and groups, and for information/cost for these, you would need to contact Cross Skating Australia. Whatever your fitness level and background they have the experience to teach you all the tips and tricks needed to get started in this unusual hobby/sport. They also do guided tours around Perth.
Meet every Tuesday at the Boat Shed Restaurant car park, in Coode Street, South Perth from 12 pm.
Hi Sue - because the article is now almost a year old it appears from their website that it is now on a Monday, and not the Tuesday as it was when I wrote the article.
I hope you didnt travel too far to get there!
