PowerPoint Presentation: Let’s face it. As a beginner, you’d agree that breaking the ice on powder when you’re accustomed to hard pack’ skiing techniques will take a while. Yes! Powder is a different game altogether. And learning it is a gradual process. The terrain is different hence it’s worth taking a few lessons in the basics. So do not be in a hurry to learn all in one go. Get your gear right: Go for fat skis and don’t forget to apply wax else, your skis may just dive into powder making it difficult to glide smoothly. Preferably buy your own gear rather than rent them out. You don’t want ill-fitting boots leaving you writhing in pain for hours together. Also, remember to get a good boot fitter. That’ll pay off in the long run. Check your ski boots, the range of your ski binding placement and whether the length of your skis is appropriate. All done? Now let’s get going.
PowerPoint Presentation: Make it straight first : Go for a straight run first, enjoy the feel, spread your hands wide, now you’re slowly gaining confidence. Position your arm correctly : Keep your arms stretched out, visualize the position you would be taking depending on the gliding moves you plan. Is it zig zag or straight or a bump that you plan to negotiate? Stay focused : Be alert always. Amidst all the excitement, the last thing you want is a painful injury. So focus. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
PowerPoint Presentation: Learn to balance well: Don’t go too hard. It is your rhythm that holds the key. So watch out for that weight between your skis. It needs to be even. Do maintain your speed and avoid sudden jerky movements. Also, maintain an even balance and don’t believe those who ask you to lean backward or forward. That can leave you exhausted.
