。 IOC President Bach said in an interview with reporters: “

Many people imagine that skiing themselves might look like this:
But in fact, many beginners start skiing like this:
So how can newbies try to avoid embarrassment on the ski slopes? Let’s take a look at the beginner’s guide below!
(1) Ski classification
Skiing is divided into snowboard and snowboard, generally recommended for beginners to choose skis, after wearing skis, standing is not a problem, with the help of ski fights, with a little practice you can slide.
Snowboarding is different, it belongs to a type of extreme sport, also known as “
”。 Snowboard sports look more handsome, but the balance requirements are very high, it is to firmly fix the feet on the board, by the body center of gravity to control the sliding of the board, even after the fall the board and feet can not be separated, for beginners it is easier to fall. If you have a little skiing foundation and want to be thrilled, you can choose snowboarding.
(2) Ski equipment
The length of the double plate is short and not long, 5~15CM less than the height, and beginners can choose shorter boards. Shorter skis are more flexible and easier to control, while longer skis are faster. In terms of hardness, choose a stretchy skateboard as much as possible, which is easier to operate, not easy to bump during skiing, and the braking effect is better.
2. Ski Fight (only required for skis)
Ski poles act as an acceleration and balance, and when choosing poles, the longest is no higher than the shoulder and the shortest is no lower than the ribs, and beginners can choose slightly longer poles. Standing with a snow pole, the forearm perpendicular to the body, and the arm in an “L” shape is best.
3. Ski helmet
Ski helmets are divided into Class A and Class B, if you just want to ski for leisure and entertainment, choose a half helmet, generally full helmet is suitable for cross-country and extreme skiers.
4. Snow goggles
In addition to blocking the wind and protecting the eyes from external impacts, snow goggles can also protect the eyes from reflective stimuli, so you can choose the one you like.
5. Ski boots
There are three styles of ski boots commonly used, so let’s take a look at them.
Freestyle ski boots: The upper should be raised above the ankle bone to provide some support, while allowing the ankle to move freely to ensure optimal positioning on the board at all times.
Traditional ski boots: When skiing traditional techniques, people usually wear shoes with lower uppers. This ensures a certain amount of support, but also allows the ankle to have maximum range of motion to achieve the ideal skiing maneuver.
Multi-use ski boots: If you don’t want to be limited by the project, you can also choose a multi-purpose shoe, which is suitable for both freestyle and traditional technical requirements.
And ski boots are one of the most important components of many ski equipment, it can be said that it does not matter if other equipment is not selected, as long as the ski boots are not selected, then the day will be quite depressed, there is no skiing experience at all. That’s because ski boots are designed to transmit our movements through the ski boots to the skis, protecting our feet, ankles and calves at the same time. For effective protection, ski boots need to be hard enough, so they are certainly not more comfortable than the shoes we usually wear, so it is very important to find a pair of ski boots that fit us.
