Inline Alpine is very similar to slalom skiing. In the absence of snow in the summer, the skaters transferred their snow slides to the asphalt slopes. Competitors launch themselves on their skates down slopes equipped with flexible poles held by massive 15kg metal plates.
The discipline attracts those in search of thrills. The Inline Alpine combines speed and technique with the direct challenge of opponents.
The goal is to gain maximum speed before reaching the gates and to find the right rhythm. The distance between the posts varies from 3 to 8-meters. A run will feature 30 to 60 posts to cross with a length varying between 150 and 250-meters. The finish area must provide enough space to brake or be equipped with mats to dampen the speed of competitors. Bales of straw can be placed in critical points to reduce risks if injury if/ upon falling. The track should be at least 5-meters wide.
