Seasoned skiers might make this sport look quite easy – but it’s no walk in the park! However, for those who crave adventure, mastering this sport shouldn’t be a chore but an adventure itself. Here’s what you need to know if you plan to try out this sport during your holiday at a Whistler hotel.
Learn the ABC’s
A skier is guided by the figures displayed on trail markers. For instance, you’ll find that an easy trail is marked by a green circle and a trail that should only be attempted by expert skiers is marked with an exclamation mark inside a black diamond.
Familiarize Yourself with the Basics
A skiing lesson is the best option to get into the basics of this adventurous sport. Some of the properties in Canada such as Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside are known to offer skiing lessons that’ll help you master the basics.
Make The Bunny Slope Your Best Friend
A first-timer to this thrilling sport will certainly need support during the first few trips down a hill. A bunny hill is where you’ll find ski lifts; a rope tow or carpet lift will let you ease into the sport with its support mechanisms.
Correct Skiing Postures
If you lean too far behind, you’ll find out that it becomes quite difficult to take a turn; you’d even lose control. Make sure that you keep your knees bent and your hands in front to maintain the balance needed.
