A rollerboard is a wonderful strength training technique that is used by many serious ski racers world wide. While it is possible to buy commercial rollerboards the cost is usually well beyond the financial possibilities of most younger athletes. A UW Nordic Team Alumni, Joe Howdyshell, built a rollerboard using easily accessible parts from the local hardware store and has provided us with his plans. Please enjoy and email Joe at howdy@uwyo.edu if you have any questions on the use or building of this machine. To access the plans in a large GIF format please click here.
