Carving: Fascination on Skis

Carving: Fascination on Skis (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Nothing has changed as much in alpine ski-sport than the art of carving. The slim line of the carving ski, which makes for a safe swishing movement also at high speeds, allows the beginner to progress well with his skiing success at an earlier stage, as well as helping the expert to experience things they haven't been able to do up until now. In this way, carving has quickly developed into a trendy sport, from which fascinating forms of skiing have emerged. This book describes the basics of carving - ranging from the first steps on the flat up to parallel skiing and on to the special techniques for racing, having fun and carving in deep powder snow. It offers tips for buying the carving ski and necessary equipment, as well as information on preparing oneself physically, how to avoid danger by using the rules of the piste and the necessity of staying safe in the mountains. The book concludes with an informative appendix, giving the more important terminology in carving, and the inclusion of interesting Internet links invites one to look deeper into this new hobby.
