SkyTechSport: New Sochi 2014 Olympic Ski & Snowboard Simulator

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

In 2013/2014, the United States Olympic Ski Team started using the ski simulator in preparation for the games, including the one to watch Olympic skier, Travis Ganong.

Skytech Sports Sochi Ski Simulator is a GPS replica of Sochi downhill racecourse at Olympic Games in 2014.  The company came out with a unique GPS-scouting technology which allows recreation of real mountains. The Olympic virtual course was acknowledged by national ski teams as a full-fledged and truly invaluable training tool.

The Sochi 2014 Olympic virtual ski simulator is a rendered in meticulous detail GPS replica of the Olympic resort. Last year, the United States Olympic Ski Team started using the ski simulator in preparation for the games. The simulator is not a video game but a high tech, powerful and unique training tool that is being embraced by both amateur and professional athletes and coaches.

Developed by top physicists, applied mathematicians and computer engineers, the simulator utilizes top notch computer sequences, power drives, accurate sensors and virtual reality compounds to create the most precise simulation of the slopes. The unique SkyTech Virtual Reality System fully synchronizes all movements of the skier with a virtual slope reproduced on a huge 27-feet-wide panoramic screen.

SkyTechSport machines incorporate powerful drives that recreate downhill G-force effect, simulating intense vibrations and compression effects. Dozens of sensing units read all of the skier's movements and make possible recreating the exact same sensations. The simulator allows users to choose snow conditions and adjust the smallest features of terrain. What is more, the computer system creates a stunning visual experience, letting us all witness a giant leap of progress in professional sports equipment.

For advanced skiers, the SkyTechSport training machine makes it easier to become accustomed to the modern carving technique and keep up muscle tone, fitness and technique off season. For beginners, it can establish solid technique from day one and build confidence in a safe environment. And for others, it's an exciting workout or fun virtual racing challenge.
