What Should You Expect from Skiing Courses in Gulmarg?
Many people assume learning how to ski is very complicated and can be time-consuming. They wonder whether they should invest enough time into learning instead of exploring the beautiful scenery of the region. Fortunately, learning how to ski isn’t very challenging, no matter how inexperienced you are.
Mastering the activity may take time, but learning how to explore a few gentle slopes during a vacation? It is child’s play! Even the youngest little kids accompanying their parents on vacation can enjoy the experience and pick up the skill in a few short sessions. Here’s a look at what you can expect from the first lesson offered by Cliffhangers’ ski instructor:
#1 Balancing On the Ski
The first thing you learn is how to balance and walk with skis. Learning balance is an essential skill that provides a strong foundation for your future skiing adventures. A well-balanced individual will be able to effectively handle gentle slopes after just a few coaching sessions.
#2 Basic Ski Techniques
Once you can balance and walk on skis, the instructor will teach you how to execute some basic tricks and maneuvers. There’s nothing complex about these tricks but they also lay a foundation on which you can build your skiing skills on.
Learning how to stop your momentum is an important lesson too. You will learn on the second day of coaching. When you’re zooming down the slope, coming to a safe stop is a very important skill. Without it, you can easily get into an accident. The technique will also help you control the speed of your skis, ensuring you can maintain proper control over your momentum.
#4 Warm-Up Exercises
Once you learn how to snowplough, you are essentially ready to ski. The instructors will teach you a few warm-up exercises that you can use to loosen your muscles and get them ready for skiing. Don’t underestimate the importance of this step because skiing with stiff muscles will only lead to disaster. And your muscles can easily become stiff in cold weather!
#5 Ski to Your Heart’s Content
After the warmup, you can try out some of the most beautiful slopes in Gulmarg. Now it is time to put your skills to the test under the guidance of the instructor.
Don’t be worried! Cliffhangers maintain a very competent staff that will look after you while you’re having fun. We take safety very seriously and will not let you get hurt. If some minor injuries occur, we have a first-aid kit on hand to help.
