With a slantboard you can practice a lot of skiing movements in the warmth and comfort of your home. If you can watch a full-size mirror while you practice, you'll learn more quickly and be able to identify performance difficulties or asymmetries. Practice exercises are below.
Start by making your own slantboard. The drawing below shows how to make an adjustable angle board, so that you can start at a gentle angle and progress to a steeper angle. It is based on US-standard lumber sizes. You can vary the dimensions somewhat according to the supplies you have on hand. The model here provides two angles: approximately 10 degrees and 15 degrees.
However you design and make your board, ensure that it is sturdy and stable. Cover the top with a low-pile, dense carpet (indoor/outdoor carpet works well). Enlist a "DIY" friend if you need help making it. (Click here to view a larger image.)
