The most noticeable difference between grass and plastic skiing is the equipment. Unlike grass skiing, plastic skiing uses the exact same equipment you would use during the winter on snowy slope.
This is one of the ways the pros keep in shape and train during the snow-less months.
For those wishing to do a little summer skiing, head on up to Up Kannabe Ski Resort. You can also rent your equipment at the mountain.
