Hold yourself on the boards
This morning, it is with great apprehension that you join your ski instructor on the slopes on the side of Prapoutel, Pleynet or Pipay to learn to ski. Yet looking at others it looks very easy. Click-clack… your bindings are buckled, you are ready. Oops… it’s moving on its own… Oops! For all those who are used to skating or skateboarding, you will see that the balance comes naturally provided you stand up straight and stand with your back straight.
Make the forts descents
“It’s going fast! It’s going too fast! Then the snow, it’s too soft” How many times you’ve scoffed at hearing this line. But now it’s up to you to make your first descent on the Prapoutel slopes or on the Pleynet slope.
Push on the poles, face the slope and get started. Oops, it’s slipping! Yes, that’s the principle of skiing! After sliding a few meters, you have to make a first turn. Plant the pole! Plant the pole we told you. Lean on your downhill leg and turn! It’s done, the first turn has passed. Now we have to chain the others. Ah, what do you know; in the end it happens by itself.
