Despite inventing the Ski-Pal, the idea of using a hoop-shaped device to teach kids to ski isn't ours. This is a tried-and-true method and still used today by ski school instructors who use plastic hula hoops as a ski aide.
Why buy a Ski-Pal instead of a hula-hoop? Easy. The hula-hoop's pitfalls on the slopes are why we invented & patented the Ski-Pal. Crafted from rigid aluminum, the Ski-Pal is ergononically comfy, adjustable, and comes apart for easy storage. Everything a hula-hoop can't do.
The Ski-Pal can be found in 50+ ski schools across the US, Canada and New Zealand. We're teamed up with one of the largest divisions of the Professional Ski Instructors of America Association (PSIA-Eastern).
In addition, the Ski-Pal is also the preferred tool of many instructors at Adaptive Ski Schools helping children or adults with physical, cognitive or visual disabilities. Our hoop also helps disabled US war veterans get back on skis or a snowboard at the Hartford Ski Spec in Breckenridge, CO.
“I’m not usually one for gadgets when it comes to skiing. I’m more often the person rolling their eyes as some kid is being led down the hill on a leash like a mindless puppy. Alright, so I am going to gulp down my pride and give the Ski-Pal an enthusiastic two thumbs up!”
