If you’re looking for a new hobby or
sport that will give you thrills, fun and a lot of exercise then skiing could
be the sport for you. Learning to ski daunting, but it’s easy to pick up and is
really good for you.
How do I start?
to ski on proper slopes, it’s worth visiting your local dry ski slope centre,
or an indoor snow centre, to get a few lessons and learn the basics of skiing. Here you will learn what equipment you need
and the perfect skiing technique.
This will save you
some precious time when you make it to your chosen holiday destination as you
won’t have to spend half of your time having lots of lessons at the resort.
What to expect from
Skiing is a great
workout. Not only can you burn up to 500 calories an hour, but it’s also great
for balance and strengthening your muscles and bones. It can be tough at first
though, so try to get in some extra exercise before you hit the slopes to
minimise your chances of injury or achy muscles.
Skiing can of
course be cold, but it’s also extremely fun and a great adrenaline hit. Plus, with all
the right equipment, you’ll be nice
and cosy no matter what the weather. It’s also something the whole family can
do, with many snow sport and dry ski slope centres offering lessons to children
as young as three years old.
Skiing is a
fantastic hobby and thanks to dry slopes
and indoor snow centres, it’s now more
accessible than ever.
