Improve skiing following the online ski course by Nina Gigele

On Saturday, I skied at the Solden Tiefenbach glacier in perfect conditions, sun, blue sky, and fresh snow. We went skiing the Pitztal glacier on Sunday, which was terrific. Anything else to add?

Not really, except you feel uncomfortable going skiing? Problems with your skiing skills? I decided to help everyone who wants to learn to ski or improve their skiing skills.

Why might you ask? Well, cos I got told that my skiing is elegant, efficient and energetic and I would like to share my knowledge about how to ski correctly.

My tips when skiing the first time of the season

After the summer months, I always warm-up and then take a leisurely ride on an easy slope when I am back on skis. It is usually relatively slow, and I focus on my balance and feel.

I like to ski on perfectly prepared skis as it makes me feel more comfortable and secure. If you know you did not prepare your skis after the summer months and go skiing, the experience won’t be comparable.

What to do next:

Start skiing using the following exercises to improve skiing on the first day:

  • Ski slowly and think about what your toes are doing
  • start slowly and get faster
  • ski long and short turns
  • What’s your weaker turn? Are you left or Right?

Want to improve – sign up for our great EXPLORISTAS technical ski day at the Pitztal glacier.

Additional tips to improve skiing:

  • follow someone who is skiing better than you
  • ski as much as possible
  • Use poles while skiing
  • ski with focusing on the outer ski and slightly lifting the inner ski
