Ski Glide through Winter

(0) marks: 0

Ski as a winter sports experience its renaissance. If it’s tried at least once it will be carried out again and again. Living in Germany you don’t have to travel to Scandinavia to do this sport. Skiers can find what they want in the area around ground maize which is in the Bavarian Forest. The insider tips for ski tourists are in the border triangle (Czech Republic, Austria, Bavaria). Here in the National Park winter sports enthusiasts are offered a scenic backdrop of a great one of the last pristine forest areas in Central Europe.

Suitable ski: the Nordic Ski Cruising has been specially designed to ski. This is about 10 to 20 centimeters shorter than for a classic style skiing and has a wider footprint. Cruising offer Nordic skiing as Schuppenski (NoWax ski) for the classical style or skating. The Nordic Ski cruising around, for example, should be fit to the body weight (divided into small, medium, large). The ski should cost between 130 and 180 euros.

Matching shoes: if to compare the conventional cross-country skiing with the Nordic Skiing, the ski boots differ from each other. These are, as opposed to the special Nordic Cruising shoes, waterproof and not flat. If you like classic ski and cross-country skiing, there is the combined solution for the shoes. These can be used for both sports. The price for such shoes in the shops varies from 80 euros and rising.

Binding: there are only two binding systems on the market which are of same building - SNS (Salomon Nordic System) or NNN (New Nordic Norm). Both systems work reliably, but they are not compatible with each other.

Stock usage: there are sticks made of aluminum and carbon. The loops at the poles should be adjustable. Aluminum sticks are cheap, but less stable. Carbon poles are very lightweight, stable and unbreakable.
