Skate skiing is a modern form of cross country skiing that combines arm and leg movement techniques similar to ice skating to achieve fast forward momentum. Dr. Rose Kenny is an avid skate skier who loves to refine her skills as well as share her passion for the sport as a coach.
Skate skiers are quick and quiet as they glide on well-groomed snow covered trails. Those who are skate skiing move quickly through the snow as skate skis have no grip. Using long poles, skate skiers propel themselves across the snow, relying on the edged and angled skis as they push sideways to gain speed.
Dr. Kenny is passionate about skate skiing and has participated in the solo skate skiing portion of the Pole Peddle Paddle (PPP) in Bend, Oregon for the last twelve years. In the most recent competition, she placed in her age group. She also coaches skate skiing classes for the Deschutes Multisport Triathlete Group at Mount Bachelor.
Dr. Rose Kenny always seeks to further polish her skate skiing skills and has participated in clinics and camps for elite skiers throughout the country. She has refined her skate skiing skills at the Methow Valley Nordic Ski Camp in Washington and has participated in ski camps for women at Snowbird Resort in Utah. She has also participated in the Steep and Deep Ski Camp and Women’s Ski Camp in Jackson Hole Wyoming.
