Skiing is a competitive and recreational winter sport where individuals balance two long skis on each foot, and attempt to move downhill. Originally used as a means to travel through snow efficiently, skis now are used for a variety of winter reasons including hunting, sledding, and recreational downhill skiing. Each modern ski is typically long and slender with an upward bend and point at the front, and made from a combination of plastic, carbon, wood, steel and aluminum. Types of skiing include Alpine, Nordic and Telemark skiing, and include cross country events like, ski jumping, freeriding, and alpine skiing. Skiing is a sport that is prominently featured in the Winter Olympics.

What is alpine skiing?

Alpine skiing is downhill skiing but with fixed-heel bindings that allow the skier to set themselves in a perfect position to maneuver down a mountain. Alpine skiers practice this sport on a ski resort or go outside the ski areas.

What is super g skiing?

Super-G or Super Giant Slalom is the racing category of downhill skiing and is all about speed and precision. It officially became known to the work in the 1983 World Cup and was added to the Winter Olympics in 1988.

How many calories does skiing burn?

Burning calories while skiing varies from gender, weight, and trails. On average a person skiing burns 500 calories in an hour on normal intensity. Depending on the level of workout you are doing on the mountain and your weight class, that number will fluctuate.

Ski Poles
Group of scaled illustrations of various sporting equipment compared to the Ski Pole

Ski Poles, also referred to as sticks or stocks, are used by skiers to balance and pull themselves while skiing. Ski Poles are used in Alpine Skiing, Freestyle Skiing, and Cross-Country Skiing, but are not used by ski jumpers. Ski Poles have a basket and grip elements. The basket is designed to stop the pole from sinking too deep into the snow and the grip slips over the wrist of the skier. The length and material of Ski Poles depend on the preferences of the skier. The different types of Ski Poles include Racing Poles, Super Giant Slalom Poles, and Nordic Walking Poles.

Ski Poles have a length of 44”-52” (110-130 cm) and pole diameter of .75” (19.1 mm). The mass of a Ski Pole is between 10.23-13.05 oz (290-370 g).
