Abstract

Everyday experience on Nordic skiing slopes suggests that there are three basic factors which make starting learning to ski difficult: lack of body awareness, difficulty in controlling the action of the ankle and the connection between the sensation of sliding and sudden fear. We believe that if these three factors can be worked on at home or in schools, learning out on the slopes would then become significantly faster and safer.

Keywords: Body Awareness, Learning, Motor Patterns, Nordic Skiing, Safety, Sudden Fear.
