Methodology and exercises
We recommend the beginner gets used to the skiing equipment and acquires basic movement information before entering the snow. The beginner should walk around on a carpet or a lawn, dressed in perfect ski gear. The child should learn to turn around a spot, do side shuﬄes, imitate the downhill skiing position, stand on one ski, and do squats.
- Repeat dry exercises on the snow
- Alternating slides - left leg, right leg - back and forth
- Lift one ski
- Lift the tail of one ski (nose stays on the ground)
- Lift the nose of one ski (tail stays on the ground)
- Weight shifting 360° turn around the center
- After a vocal signal - “ready, go!” - transition into sliding (student’s hands on knees)
- After a few meters of sliding - vocal warning: “Stop!” - then brake using the snowplough position
- Flat track slalom between obstacles/cones, slight snowplough ski position (hands on knees)
- Flat track slalom between obstacles/cones, parallel ski position (hands on knees)
- Gradual climbing up a gentle slope by lifting skis, transition into a direct descent, then stop in a snowplough position
- Basic turns on a gentle slope
- Gradually move to more challenging ski slopes
