Grasski - The Perfect Summer Training for Alpine Skiers

As the snow melts away and the mountains become green, alpine skiers are often found longing for the feeling of gliding across the slopes. Enter grasski, an innovative sport that provides skiers with the opportunity to practice their favorite sport, even in the warm summer months. This blog post will delve into the exciting world of grasski and its use as summer training for alpine skiers.

What is Grasski?

Grasski, also known as "sci d'erba" involves skiing on grassy slopes rather than snowy ones. This sport uses special skis looking as little grooming machine or tank called "grasskis" designed specifically for skiing on grass. Suitable terrain includes well-cutted, not steep grass-covered hills.

Grass Skiing and Summer Training

Grasski provides an excellent summer training alternative for alpine skiers who seek to maintain and improve their skills during the off-season. Here are some reasons why incorporating grass skiing into your summer training regimen can be beneficial:

  1. Technique Development: Practicing on grass can help skiers develop better balance and refine their techniques without relying on snowy conditions.
  2. Physical Fitness: Grass skiing, with its added resistance from wheels and terrain, is an effective way of maintaining and improving physical fitness while focusing on skiing-specific muscles.
  3. Mental Fitness: Skiing on grass requires higher levels of focus and concentration, allowing athletes to fine-tune their mental game.
  4. Adapting to Different Terrain: Experiencing varying terrains during summer training sessions can help athletes prepare for different types of slopes they may encounter in winter competitions.
  5. Lower Carbon Footprint: In recent years, snow sports have been criticized for contributing to climate change through artificial snow production and other methods. Engaging in grass skiing reduces the need for such actions by utilizing existing green spaces for practice.
Finding the Right Grasski Equipment and Locations

Grasski equipment, which includes grass skis, bindings, alpine ski boots, and poles used for alpine skiing, can be purchased online. Keep in mind that grasski skis are different from traditional skis because they have small wheels or tracks, making them suitable for grass terrain.

As for locations, grass ski centers are available in various countries such as Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, and Japan. Additionally, you can search for local grass-covered hills that are steep enough and well-maintained to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.


Grasski offers a unique opportunity for alpine skiers to continue their training during the off-season while also experiencing a new facet of skiing. By practicing on grass slopes or synthetic surfaces throughout the summer months, athletes can maintain their skills and improve their overall performance on snow when winter returns. So why not give grass skiing a try this summer and take your alpine skiing skills to new heights
