10 Things I Learned as a Ski Instructor

Learne as Ski Instructor

As a teacher, I learned more about skiing than ever as a student. Whether they improve my skills or make my day easier, these helpful ski tips will work for anyone in their 80s or 80s. Scroll down for hours to make your day more fun and enjoyable.

10. “Stitch before you ski” not just for children. These are wise words for five or sixty-five years.

9. For lunch, put on gloves, a crocodile and sleeves and tie it to the back of the chair. Do not roll on the table or floor and do not scratch the glasses.

8. Slip the headband into every jacket and snack pocket.

7. You may be on the wrong train. If you bought your ski boots because they were comfortable, they are probably too big.

6. From a certain age, keep a handful of ibuprofen in your pocket.

5. You need ski lessons. (I know I’m a fan, but you need a ski lesson.)

4. You can hide a lot of bad skiing from the nurses, but the bulbs show it. Go out on the slopes every now and then if you want to improve.

3. Don’t bomb the green barrel; you just look stupid.

2. You never have enough ski equipment; never.

1. Drive only from point A to point B, as there are no roads, trees, meshes or ditches along the route. Skiing with a child is a whole new adventure and a thousand races.

When I heard that people were spending hundreds of dollars on professional ski boot equipment, I couldn’t believe bad things would pay off. But I learned that many of our weaknesses in skiing are back on the road. Last year I visited a professional solo editor. When I got out on the water, I did a full fit and fit this season. Now the question arises: is it worth it?

When I first bought ski boots, I went to the store, found a pair of semi-finished boots and tried them on until they fit. A young woman who works in a shop assures me that these are good boots and luckily I was not aware of my mistake. After a few seasons, with a thick top, I decided my boots were too small. Fortunately, I was called a professional shoemaker before making another bad shoe choice. The problem was the size of my boot; but it was two sizes too big. “It’s great that you aren’t hurt,” she said. “I don’t drive that aggressively,” I replied. He shook his head. “It can not be.”

Well-fitting boots teach the risk of injury and can increase strength.

After getting the right size, I finally understood what all the instructors meant when they said I had to ski on foot. Previously, I could only brake with my calves and skis, which meant I could only drive from the back seat. With the right boots in place, I finally got out of the level I was in.

After I bought it, I went to a ski course. We were making small, slow turns and I couldn’t turn without lifting my leg and putting it back in place. I was always told it was a balance problem, but the teacher saw me skiing that day and noticed that one leg was firmly on the skis and the other was shaking. She advised us to visit the shoemakers. His explanation: one leg did not match the other and I compensated by standing on the edges of the legs. I literally felt my feet flatten as they put the boots under the headset. The next time I went skiing, I was able to move around without a lift.

 What are your options?

Even if you don’t have the money or the desire for well-fitting boots, you should still seek professional advice. You understand a lot more than a teenager in the ski industry. It is very important to take the right size. They can guide you different types of boots and find the best one for you and your abilities.

The next thing they can do is warm up the boot and fair to give you a carefully coordinated look. It is important that the space extends out of the trunk.

It is then measured and thickened, and the body is torn apart as if it were not from high school. But in any case, a new cabinet or power supply is needed to solve this problem.

Being unprepared for skiing is one of the worst things to do when returning to the Alps. The weather in the mountains can be predictable, from blue skies in the morning to thunder in the evening. And I’m certainly not exaggerating because it happened to us! That’s why it’s important to pack the right ski clothes that will go inside during the day and keep you from getting too hot, too cold and worse still wet. You will NOT get wet in the snow. The right beginner ski gear will add to your experience.

Between the three of us, I’m very cold and always need extra layers. Hannah is a can of hot water and it never freezes. She also has a handful of clothes that I have to treat as clothes (she hates itching) and nothing around her neck and mouth for that. Andrea’s quality. He pays for beautiful clothes that last for years and works hard to buy exactly what he needs.

So you can imagine what our first mixed family ski vacation was like. haha!


Cotton is your worst enemy when skiing. Clothing should be kept warm by insulating heat close to the skin. Cotton retains moisture and dries slowly, especially in cold weather. It then loses its thermal properties, making it colder in contact with the skin. Even if you throw it on top of a thermal material, the thermal material will also get wet. When skiing for the first time, you run the risk of falling regularly and taking snow in unusual places! It is inevitable that you will get wet. So avoid cotton. It does not warm you.


You can go through trial and error if you find the best thermal properties if you don’t already have one. Material and price play a role and you decide if you want to go natural or synthetic.

Olann Merino

Pure merino wool is more breathable than cotton and ideal for year-round adventures. Non itchy, ultralight, machine washed, obviously dirt and odor repellent. This makes it suitable not only for mountain activities but also for outdoor activities. But to say that merino wool is the more expensive option and Hannah thinks it’s barefoot because her skin is very sensitive. So for him she needed something about merino wool, otherwise she wouldn’t be wearing it.


For those who don’t like the feel of natural fibers on their skin and are looking for a cheaper alternative, the synthetic option may be best for you. Many hybrid clothing brands are made with a combination of two fibers of polyester and polypropylene and are very effective. Polypro conducts moisture to the polyester and then evaporates. Today, synthetic polyester thermal models are made in such a way that they do not retain odor but still cannot compete with merino wool. You need to wash them more often than their natural fibers.

For brands, stay tuned to Adventure Stores. North Face, Helly Hansen, Kathmandu, Icebreaker, just to name a few. After all, you also look for lightweight materials so you don’t get too fat while skiing and the makeup is layered. Always take the plug so you can replace it with a dry one in the middle of the day and let it dry overnight.


I’m a big indoor fan. By the way, I mean the inside of the hat and the inside gloves. I always wear a thin inner hat under my helmet to give me extra warmth and it really works. It also helps keep hair healthy and away from the face. For those of you who are a little bit hostile to germ and borrow headphones, this is perfect for you.

Indoor gloves are the best, especially the ones with tech tips, so I can still take pictures with my iPhone without my hands getting cold. It also seems like I never have enough blood in my limbs, so my hands are always cold! I also have clean merino wool gloves for all my winter city trips, and they are thin enough to be worn under any outer glove.

It’s the BEST investment I’ve ever made. It covers my head, neck, mouth and nose. I think the down jacket is warm but too thick to wear a helmet. So I choose a finer synthetic material.


It is very important to buy ski socks. It may be controversial, but thin socks keep your feet much warmer than thick, heavy socks. Thick sock retains sweat and keeps moisture close to the foot. On the other hand, a thin sock carries sweat from the foot to the inner shoe, which is supposed to remove moisture from the body.

Thick socks tend to pile up and trust me when I say you don’t want that discomfort in your toes and shins. It is very important to insert the thermal pants evenly into the sock and make sure they do not overlap unevenly. When this happens, press these fields and they can be pushed. How can I find out? Study hard!

Try to wear seamless socks on your toes as pressure can cause discomfort there as well. I know ….. who would have thought there was so much to think about in socks?

#06 -Warm up the collarHere you mainly get a warmer neck 

I love very warm merino wool scarves that are long enough to cover my mouth and nose when needed. However, Hannah prefers the thinner, lighter and more breathable version. I highly recommend the ice floe as it is the only thing you should wear without choking on your neck. And keep it warm.


For beginners or very casual skiers, I only recommend renting your own clothes, especially for children. Even if you ski every year, they only do it once before growing the next year. And for adults, if you don’t have a lot of trouble renting clothes, I recommend you do it. As a beginner skier, this is a great way to figure out which ski suit to look for before spending the money to invest in anything.

If you are really thinking about buying, think about the shape of the seat you need, what insulation is right for you, the length of the jacket and pants, how much you need it to be warm, waterproof and breathable. In addition to the basics, all three have some of the features we are always looking for. For example, when he gets hot, Andrew needs vents for his jackets and pants. Hannah likes a tight hood because she hates snow falling on her neck and I need lots of pockets. For some reason, mom always does things!

And wait for the sale! At the end of the season, every skiing activity starts to plummet, so it’s always a good time to freshen up your wardrobe.

# 08 – Tips for ski gloves

It is essential to buy the right gloves for a good day of skiing. It should be warm and waterproof. I love my gloves, so they not only warm me up, but they allow me to be faster as I cling to bars or try to help Hannah with something. I recommend a glove a little longer so that it protrudes from the sleeve of the jacket. I also prefer gloves with velcro around the wrist. Watch out for all the snow during the blizzard!


I thought about buying ski boots and had no idea it was such an exciting process! Never shop online unless you are an expert and don’t understand what boots are. Always sit professionally, because they know which type of boot is best for you.

The width of the boot is important for maximum comfort. So you have to try them.

Your skin level should be taken into consideration. Are you a beginner, intermediate, advanced or expert? Your skills on the slopes are completely different. It all depends on whether you need softer boots, if you are an easy skier or if you are more difficult to get off the mountain professionally. My dilemma is that I might consider myself the average skier, but I don’t want to be blown off the slopes!

Weight and height are also important because the shoe has to respond. So if you are heavier it is better to get up and vice versa if you are small.

The end result is not to find out for yourself. Contact a professional.

In mid-2018 we decided to invest in ski boots whose base also fits our feet. Can I say it was the best investment we’ve ever made? So close, so safe and so comfortable! No pain and also installed. If you are planning to ski every year, I recommend that you buy them.


When buying or renting a ski mask, it is important to buy a good ski mask. These are essential pieces of equipment when skiing and climbing in the snow as they protect your eyes from the harsh elements. The glasses are also designed to wrap around the face, so they not only protect the eyes, but also prevent wind and sun on the upper face. Here are some tips for buying glasses:

Buy them above the hill as they are usually cheaper. You can ski second hand first to save money.

Look for lenses that offer 100% ultraviolet radiation to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Also pay attention to the anti-fog features such as the special anti-fog cover, the double lenses and the large air vents.

Choose orange / yellow lentils. Contrast with the white of the snow so you can see the landscape better.

Sometimes I wear glasses instead of contact lenses, so I always try to wear them with glasses.

If you wish, you can also get prescription glasses. I have to have them because I don’t wear glasses or contact lenses while skiing.

Oh, and if you are Asian, you get special Asian glasses because we don’t have a nose bridge. Laugh out loud! I think it’s funny if you think about it!

So these are just some of the most important things to keep in mind when skiing. And even if you’re busy getting ready for skiing, remember to pack the right clothes if you’re not skiing! A pair of snow boots with a good grip is ideal, and a nice warm jacket and fur pants will do just fine. In the meantime, enjoy the ski season! Pack well and be ready. It will surely change the world.
