Auli Ski Slopes Level

  • Ski trail difficulty is measured by percent slope, not degree angle. A 100% slope is a 45 degree angle. In general, beginner slopes (green circle) are between 6% and 25%. Intermediate slopes (blue square) are between 25% and 40%. Difficult slopes (black diamond) are 40% and up. However, this is just a general "rule of thumb." Although slope gradient is the primary consideration in assigning a trail difficulty rating, other factors come into play. A trail will be rated by its most difficult part, even if the rest of the trail is easy. Auli almost fulfill the perfect slopes of 45 degree as well recing ski clopes approved by FIS commity.

You should bring your kids for Skiing

  • Kids are more natural skiers than most adults starting out, and they tend to pick it up more quickly. But it's important to keep kids of all ages on appropriate terrain for their skills. Learning to ski is all about controlling speed; if they're able to slow down and stop -- by themselves -- whenever they need to, they're on the right slope. 

Tips for turning your Skies on gentle ski slopes. This will help you to learn as quick base method.

  • Proper turning is the most important skill for beginning skiers to learn. Turning not only sends you in the direction you want to go, it also controls your speed. And controlling speed is what learning to ski is all about. Most new skiers start by making turns in a snow plow, or gliding wedge. This works well on very gentle slopes with flat surfaces. But to advance to steeper terrain and, eventually, moguls, you must learn proper turning, which is much more effective at controlling speed than the wedge turn.

Getting an edge

  • Proper turns are traditionally called parallel turns because your skis are parallel to each other at the end of each turn. This is the ideal position for edging, the basic action of scraping the edges of your skis against the snow. Edging is what slows you down. The more your skis are perpendicular to the slope the more they edge, and the more they control your speed.
  • A good way to get the feel of edging with parallel turns is to practice making "hockey stops." Make a sharp turn to the right or left (whichever is more comfortable), bring your skis parallel to each other (they don't have to touch, and actually shouldn't touch when you're turning) and edge them hard into the snow until you come to a complete stop. This is similar to the action at the end of each turn, except instead of stopping you keep some momentum to pop into the next turn. Hockey stops are good practice because you have to commit to bringing your skis parallel to each other; this can be a challenging transition from making a wedge, which is the opposite of the parallel position. But once you get the feel you'll realize why parallel works so much better.

Basic Turning Technique

  • To turn to the left, slightly drop your right shoulder toward the tip of your right ski, while increasing the pressure of your right ski boot on your right ski. Hold that position as you are moving down, and your skis will gently round out a turn to the left.
  • To turn to the right, gently drop the left shoulder toward the tip of the left ski, increasing the pressure on the left ski and your skis will turn to the right.
  • This may seem counterintuitive -- that you learn toward your right ski to make a left turn, and vice versa -- but try the technique at home, without your skis on, and it will make more sense. Another thing to keep in mind is that most of your weight (and consequently the majority of the edging) is on the downhill ski, the ski that's lower on the slope as you complete the turn. When you make a left turn, the right ski is the downhill ski. With a right turn, the left ski is the downhill ski. 

Using Poles when Turning

  • Children learning to ski typically don't use poles until they've mastered basic turning technique, but adults often use them sooner. If you're using poles when learning to turn, it's important not to let them hinder your progress. Poles are primarily used to help you maintain rhythm; they are not used for balance or support.
  • You absolutely do not need poles to make a turn. One way to use poles effectively is to initiate each turn with a firm pole plant, stabbing one pole into the snow just as you begin a turn. If you're making a left turn, plant the left pole, then begin shifting your weight toward your right ski.
  • At the end of the left turn, plant the right pole and shift your weight to the left ski to make a right turn.
