Original or skating
Do you want authenticity? Refreshing and friendly moments?
Instructors at ESF La Bresse - Lispach offer ski group lessons from 8 years old. Adults and children are not put together and groups are made according to levels. Two styles are available:
- ORIGINAL: the skis you will use are long and narrow. They do not have metal edges; the central part is waxed for restraint or otherwise equipped with scales as part of a tourism and leisure practice.
This traditional technique, a.k.a original, consists in going forward in two parallel marks. It is also called alternative step technique, as you glide from one foot to another.
- SKATING: The skating step, also known by its English name "skating", is practiced with smooth skis, without wax, to slide as well as possible along their entire length.
The ski is generally 3 to 10% larger than the skier. This style, which is similar to ice skating, is more demanding than the original: it requires a certain physical condition.
