Some tips for skiing and snowboarding
- With snowboarding a lot of your balance comes in the hips, so try and ride using the edge of the board and use your hips to put your centre of gravity over the uphill edge of the board.
- Steering and control is the most important part of skiing so that you can stay safe and have fun on the slope. So make sure you get the basics of stopping, slowing, and steering whilst parallel skiing before you go for any particularly challenging runs.
- Both skiing and snowboarding require a lot of crouching and knee bending so when you get your boots make sure you get comfortable with crouching in them and when you’re on the slopes try to loosen your knees and crouch to improve balance.
