Learning how to ski can be a very tough and sometimes a hurtful process that needs a lot of patience. So it is important to go through the gradual process of gaining a good ski technique in order to ease your training. This means that as a beginner you must start with the basics which are the easiest and the safest. After you have mastered the beginner ski technique, you are ready to move on to the intermediate and then to the advanced ski technique.
The first thing you must remember is that no ski technique is so good that it can not be any better. The most common ski technique among skiers is ski carving. When we are talking about the carving technique, we could say that it is know by the fact that both legs are involved in a turn. You could say that this ski technique involves skiing on the inner corners of your skis. This is a fairly simple technique to use and it is also a lot of fun and offers a good workout.
Going up or down?
Another thing you should remember especially if you are just beginning to find the right ski technique for you, the way up is much easier both physically and psychologically than the way down. On our way down we are obliged to use different ski techniques, and we are faced with different obstacles, and this is very unlikely to happen on our way up. And of course, the possibility of falling is greater when we are skiing downhill so this brings another tension to the table.
