Mountainous and hilly landscapes used to be a nightmare for in-line skaters, but now theses terrains are an absolute highlight. There are special in-line skates for going uphill. Short and long bursts of momentum come one after the other and provide the ultimate feeling of speed, physical control and outdoor experience. The name of this style, like the movement itself, is reminiscent of skiing. Alpine skating includes disciplines such as slalom, RTL, Super G and slope. Non-skiers can learn the winter sport technique and skiers are practically advanced freewheelers.
