You will have a to of people on this site talk shit about rollerblading and say it has nothing to do with skiing. They only go by whatever snowboarder magazine told them it was lame. Skating is very similar to skiing. As said above, same muscles, balance, coordination. Shit is fun.
Well with rollerblading there is a smaller area for you to land on so your landings get much better because you get used to having to land perfect for your trick to work. Balance on rails gets way better in my opinion as well...

I put my skis on in my room and did some sick butters, then I fell and put a ski through the wall.
