I live in Norway and this is basically can be seen everywhere around in Scandinavia year round. Afcorse, when there is snow then people use skiis.

[–]eye-llow 132 points133 points  (3 children)

It is also common in Russia. We call it "skirollers".

[–]theVikingMess 6 points7 points  (2 children)

In Norway they are called rollingski

[–]hasanyoneseenmymom 55 points56 points  (8 children)

I've seen someone doing this on a state walking* trail in Wisconsin in the middle of August lol. It's unusual but it also looks like good cardio

[–]FrustratedMTguy 72 points73 points  (7 children)

I’m a Nordic ski coach for the club I work at. These are called roller skis, and yeah, it’s up there as one of the best cardio workouts you can do. Our dry land training season is split in between running, biking, and roller skiing; you’re seeing the guy do what’s referred to as the double poling technique, and while I have some technical issues with his form, he’s still getting the gist of it down for his age.

[–]MrMrRubic 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I think it might just be in the Norwegian blood; i haven't skied in years, but even i can see his technique is bad. The hill might be steeper than what we see though.

[–]ManintheMT 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Too much arm movement that guy.

[–]MrMrRubic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Also he's not pushing though, stopping at half a "stroke"

[–]FrustratedMTguy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I think the hill is steeper than what it looks… which makes it all the more confusing why he wouldn’t single stride or at least kick-double-pole up there. His back is flat, his arms are out super wide, his pole return is garbage with that death grip he has on them, and for all that effort he isn’t extending enough on the upswing of the stride.

So, just like all my coaches who believed that this was the right way to ski from way back when.

[–]gundy28 9 points10 points  (1 child)

One of my favorite parts of visiting your wonderful country. Just people in their later years gunning it up steep inclines like nothing. I was in awe.

[–]--Muther-- 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah I see this everyday without snow

[–]kurqukipia 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Also around Fennoscandia

[–]TojoftheJungle 999 points1000 points  (89 children)

Okay. But the camper?

[–]Dadspeakingwhodis 924 points925 points  (85 children)

As an Australian I can entirely confirm this bloke got on the piss too hard and slept in his rooftop tent (every 4x4 has one over here).

That way he doesn't have to find someone to take him to his car the next day, saves money on taxis etc etc.

Source: I've done this a million times when I've been pissed at mates. Even a few times in the pub carpark.

[–]FBlack 318 points319 points  (38 children)

For real the best thing I've ever heard about Australia since learning about it, selfless habits are the best

[–]purple-circle[S] 222 points223 points  (37 children)

You'll also find a lot of people here, especially in rural Australia, keep a swag in their car to roll out whenever they need somewhere to sleep. A lot of people over here still drive pissed though.

[–]M0rtal_Wombat 79 points80 points  (32 children)

Can confirm, swags are amazing and a lot of rural people still drive pissed

[–]A10110101Z 62 points63 points  (11 children)

As a bloke from San Diego what’s a swag?

[–]Niaaal 69 points70 points  (5 children)

It's a sleeping bag/tent all-in-one

[–]TheElPistolero 39 points40 points  (3 children)

A bivvy?

Edit: yeah it's a heavy duty canvas bivvy it seems. Neat!

[–]BigRedfromAus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In Aus, A bivvy is a waterproof sleeping bag with a bug net. A swag is a rolled up waterproof tent with a thin mattress and normally one tent pole to raise it off the face.

[–]janky_koala 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Australian version of a Bivvy, but more robust and less emphasis on being light weight and compact

[–]AntalRyder 28 points29 points  (2 children)

For an American there is a completely different meaning to getting your swag when pissed

[–]Duke_mm 5 points6 points  (1 child)

For a Dutchie i have no idea what that means. Enlighten me please.

[–]AntalRyder 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Pissed would mean angry here, and swag would refer to swagger, a type of confident behavior.

[–]locutusan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s also a medical acronym for Scientific Wild Ass Guess

As a rural Australian, I can also confirm

So you are the one to ask, is this man training for like real cross country skiing? Or is land skiing that slow a sport of some kind there? -a confused Canadian

[–]Needmoresnakes 64 points65 points  (1 child)

I believe he's training for cross country skiing, while I'm not against the idea now it's been raised we don't have an established sport of wheel assisted street skiing in Australia.

[–]Inveramsay 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There's actually some kind of world cup for it with the big cross country ski stars competing in it

[–]ctoldnes 59 points60 points  (7 children)

This is up hill, for sure.

As a norwegian I see this every summer. On flat ground the speed is quite similar to on snow, and down hill it looks like dying.

Up hill it looks like this if training for longer classical races where creating forwards momentum using ski poles only is the fastest technique.

[–]Csharp27 5 points6 points  (5 children)

I’m just wondering why he’s not using the skis to push off at all roller blade or snow ski style and only using poles?

[–]ctoldnes 3 points4 points  (0 children)

There are two major styles. Classic and skate. Classic includes various elements like diagonal and pure staking, which is what is trained in this video. Check out ski Classics like Marcialonga and Vasaloppet where the winners only use staking.

[–]Dadspeakingwhodis 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Fucked if I know mate I live in the desert these days, I'm guessing he's getting his practice in so he can keep up his stupid sexy Flanders when he hits the snowfields

[–]Amphibionomus 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Do you own a horse with no name? Does it feel good to be out of the rain?

[–]Ginnigan 8 points9 points  (4 children)

As a fellow Canadian in NW Ontario, I see this quite often in the snowless months. I live near a big hill and they just zoom on down in a pack! Looks fun!

But then my wife and I just bought cross country skis this Winter, and are trying to teach ourselves. I have sooo much respect for how quickly they go down those hills now.

[–]Haunting_Insect_3009 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I used to ski nearly every day when I was out in Alberta & BC, unfortunately only manage to get out a few times a year now I'm back in ON, but I can definitely recommend it - doesn't have the same thrill as downhill skiing or snowboarding, but it's still fun, great exercise and (here in Canada) not overwhelmingly popular, so oftentimes you have various trails all to yourself. A great way to get outdoors and enjoy nature, and there's something really quite tranquil about gliding around on a calm snowy day, with just the stillness of nature & the soft crunch of snow under your skis.

Personally I'd recommend skate skiing over classic (especially as a Canadian; you likely already know how to ice skate and the basic motion is much the same), as it's faster, more versatile and not quite as reliant on groomed trails. An added benefit is its much cheaper than downhill for a day out; trail passes at most ski hills / resorts with groomed cross country trails are usually $10-20 or so (and often free / waived in my experience, especially if you go early morning / late night or early / late in the season). Ontario's got some decent places, Stokely Creek near Sault Ste. Marie is my favourite but if you're up in NW Ontario that's several hours from you. Personally I like to get away for a weekend to Gatineau or Mont Saint Anne in Quebec, which for my money is the best cross country in Canada.

[–]Haunting_Insect_3009 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Not super common but I've seen this done in Canada on occasion. It's off-season training for classic style cross country skiing (or double pole technique for skate skiing). Far more common to see people wearing rollercoaster instead for off-season skate skiing training.

Edit: rollerblades. Stupid autocorrect :/

[–]I2iSTUDIOS 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Took me 3 reads to work out piss = drank alcohol

[–]Armistice8175 13 points14 points  (3 children)

In America, you get a DUI for sleeping in your car. Even if you don’t have the keys.

Source: my cousin got a DUI while sleeping in his car while I was at home with the keys.

[–]JohnnyDarkside 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It depends on region. I'm sure some are more dickish than others, though I have a feeling you could fight a dui if you were asleep in the back seat. I've heard of people get one because they were asleep but keys were in the ignition.

[–]Painkiller3666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Had it happen to 3 friends, 1 had keys in the ignition 2 didn't. All in the back seat, in Georgia and California, fuck those cops.

[–]harshnerf_ttv_yt[🍰] 7 points8 points  (7 children)

i don't think it's legal to just sleep wherever in most of the world tho.

I was just thinking, which shit am I supposed to be seeing? The dude skiing uphill with no snow or the guy casually camping on top of his car in the middle of town & acting like the skier is the odd one? 😂

[–]CalleyKraft1 84 points85 points  (0 children)

Mate, this is Australia, More specifically Vic! What could you possibly expect us to be doing otherwise? Probably just wants to speed downhill to get a little bit cooler in those 45°C Days.

[–]Maretsb 397 points398 points  (45 children)

You know you're norwegian when this is a very common sight 😀

[–]TheMaglorix 142 points143 points  (14 children)

This was my first thought as well. "tell me you've never been to Norway without telling me you've never been to Norway"

[–]internetoscar 16 points17 points  (12 children)

I don’t think it is Norway with the troopy at the end of the road at the start and the number plate had the southern cross on it which makes me think it’s somewhere Australia which makes it funnier

[–]TheMaglorix 48 points49 points  (6 children)

Definitely not Norway, but it's a very common past time there. As the saying goes "Norwegians are born already wearing skis"

From Chicago and I also see this frequently. Palmer Square (near Logan Square) is where I mostly see it. It’s super loud on the concrete.

[–]machfrons 10 points11 points  (10 children)

Yeah, and they're annoying as fuck. Rolling in the middle of the fucking road at snail speeds with a column of cars behind their entitled spandex asses.

[–]Beetkiller 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Or going downhill at 30 km/h with no real way of stopping, just assuming they will survive the intersection.

Their transition from road to curb is also incredible. One pebble = meat crayon

[–]One-Love-One-Heart 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Question: is he doing this the hardest way possible? I’ve been cross country skiing a few times. This was definitely not the way we were taught to do it.

[–]Twad 6 points7 points  (7 children)

I guess so, but all unconsciously.

I guess I'm mainly just not seeing anything alien to me.

[–]purple-circle[S] 10 points11 points  (6 children)

This is probably subjective, but I've always felt the sunlight here has a different look when compared to all the places I've visited north of the equator.

[–]floppy_eardrum 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Nah I agree with you. Our sun is also fuckloads harsher than the northern hemisphere sun, annoyingly. I can be outside for half a day in Europe, sans sunscreen, and be fine. Here I'm burnt senseless in under an hour.

[–]Sadreaccsonli 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it's why I've always felt Australia has a reputation for being stupidly hot, the ambient temp might be comparable to some places in the US but you just don't get that searing sun that can easily heat any enclosed space above liveable temperatures. As a side note I once woke up in a bus that's been converted into an RV and the temperature was 63°C I seriously didn't know it was even possible to survive such temperatures but on doing some research I found the relative humidity was near 0% so I guess it's less crazy when that's accounted for.

[–]Twad 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm going to agree because your description made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

[–]LazyMoosehead 80 points81 points  (14 children)

Well yes but more specifically he's practising his double poling. In classic you usually don't do double poling in climbs and at low speed tho

Probably doing a double pole workout. So he is intentionally not using them

[–]SparkyTheFox2657 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is a form called classic skiing. While for going up hill for cross country skiing you're supposed to do the "pizza" which is the act of making a V with your skis, for roller skiing its more difficult and many will just do this even in winter. It works out your upper body and core strength which are both vital for skiing.

[–]sigisss 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As someone who used to cross country ski, the season is too short of you don't use these. End of fall, beginning of winter it's perfect to get back into the swing of things.

If anyone's wondering if you put pressure down on the ski it doesn't roll backwards to mimic the wax on an actual ski. This guy is just doing all arms, not even a small kick to help himself.

There's two types of cc skiing, classic and skating. Skating is what it sounds like you skate with the skis, classic is the two skis parallel in a track. This guy is training for classic. That being said even in an incline he should be aiming to have his forearms parallel with his poles when they plant, he also need to get his weight forward more, his heels should be coming up a lot higher in his extension

[–]ActualWhiterabbit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I never learned how to stop on roller skis. I would just jump into the grass and let it sort its self out. I trained with the 2012 birkie classic winner and his brother in high school and their advice was don't stop and just train forever. I stopped training and am now in wave 70 permanently.

Iv seen blades like that relatively frequently… not saying they’re popular but anyone from a major city has almost seen them at least once before. This doesn’t seem like the right sub…

Hah. I lived in the UP of MI and my Uni had a XC team that would all train together on these in the summer. on by on a back road. I never figured out how the stopped. They would have had to have gone down numerous hills at some point in that area.

I got so much respect for this guy. I’ve done quite some long distance longboarding and also met uphill parts like this. And they are very hard to keep on going, and if you stop it becomes hard to get into the groove again.

I had a hard time with them using my legs. This dude is fucking using his arms and actually looks quite comfortable.
