imageSkiing is one of the most exciting adventure sports. Although skiing over the pristine white snow peaks seems like an adventure you cannot wait to begin, you must need to know a few basic rules and tips before get started. Going through these tips will ensure that you are prepared for the task that lies ahead you.

Skiing Tips for Beginners

First let me answer your questions about the dress code and the skiing gear that you will need. While trying skiing for the first time it is always better to rent all the skiing gear rather than buying it. The skiing gear is quite expensive and hence you would want to make sure that you like the sport before you actually invest money in buying the equipment.

While renting skis make sure that they are 20-30cm shorter than your height. As for the boots, try to find a pair that is comfortable for your feet, the shoes should leave enough room for you toes to move but your heel shouldn’t be able to come off the base. As for the clothes, you should check the weather before you decide to go skiing. Use thermal layered clothing to keep you warm. Make sure that the outside layer of your clothing is waterproof and ensure that you have enough pocket space. Wear sunglasses if it is sunny, or goggles for a cloudy and shady weather.

Now once you have got all your skiing gear in place, you neat to think about what you are actually going to do while skiing. First of all before you strap your planks on, make sure that you are comfortable in all your skiing gear including the boots mainly! Do not in any cake tuck your pants into the skiing boots make sure you pull them over the boots from outside.

The first and the most important thing to keep in mind is the balance. The snow is slippery and hence you need to balance yourself really well while you are on the snow. First of all, use your poles to scrape the snow off the bottom of your boots before you slot them into the bindings on your skis. It is recommended that you try on ski and take a quick skate to have a feel of it, before you put on the other one.

Now that you are all set, it is time to get into the actual action. Now remember that if you turn your foot to the right then your ski will also turn to the right so all you need to do is just try lifting one foot at a time and turning them first to the right and then to the left. Now before you start moving, remember that it is very important to have a good and correct stance.

The appropriate position while skiing is to have your feet shoulder width apart, your toes pointing inwards and heels apart. Now you need to bend your ankles, knees and waist slightly and stretch your arms out to feel your weight evenly on the balls of your feet and heels. Try to balance this stance until you start skiing.

These are some important skiing tips for beginners. It is always recommended that you have a professional guide you for the first time.
