In addition to being a sport of its own, slacklining is also popular as a training tool for a variety of athletes. As it can help improve core strength, balance, and reaction time, slacklining is common with climbers, cyclists and other athletes. However, balancing on the slackline is also a fun and mentally stimulating activity for all ages. The Squaw Valley slacklines vary in difficulty for all ranges of expertise. The lines are situated one to three feet off the ground.
