Going New School With Twin-tip Skis-shdoclc.dll

UnCategorized Twin-tip skis are a derivative of traditional alpine skis. Alpine skis are the ones we’re all familiar with: long and sleek with a raised tip at the front end, and a flat end on the opposite end. The raised end at the front and the flat end at the back mean that alpine skis can only go forward — without significant difficulty at least. Twin-tip skis offer skiing enthusiasts the opportunity to ski both forward and backwards (Or skiing ‘fakie’) with ease. Also, twin-tip skis .e in three different varieties, each optimized for a specific use of the ski, whether it be for navigating powder, normal mountain runs, or tearing up terrain parks. The rapid development and increasing popularity of twin-tip skis is congruent with the advent of "Newschool" skiing. Newschool skiing is a break off of Freestyle skiing. Newer generations are familiar with Freestyle skiing as moguls and aerials as seen widely in the Winter Olympic Games. Both these forms of skiing are formally judged .petitions. Both also involve the performance of technical tricks, rather than traditional alpine skiing where .petitors try to race a course down a mountain as fast as they can. Mogul skiing involves a series of steep bumps (the moguls) and small jumps called ‘kickers’ which propel skiers into the air to perform their tricks. Aerials differ from moguls in that skiers go down one huge jump and perform incredibly .plex acrobatic maneuvers like triple back flips with multiple twists. Newschool, or Freeskiing, broke off from Freestyle skiing as a result from the strict rules placed on .petitions by the International Ski Federation (FIS). Champions of Newschool took cues from snowboarders and developed their sport by taking to terrain parks with half-pipes, boxes and rails to perform tricks on and off of. The early proponents of Freeskiing helped major ski .pany Salomon develop their first twin-tip ski for mass production. Other ski manufacturing .panies like Rossignol of France followed suit soon thereafter. With the twin-tip skis (essential to the techniques of Freeskiing) being mass produced, the only hold up in the sport was the construction of more terrain parks in ski resorts throughout the world. This explosion of interest in Freeskiing began in the early 1990’s and continues to develop today. One reason for the continued interest is wide construction of terrain parks in resorts. While certainly limited to a select few resorts in the beginning of Freeskiing, terrain parks are fairly .mon now, especially in U.S. resorts, with some of them sporting two or more terrain parks for skiers and boarders to enjoy.
