Skiing History — Morgedal, The Birthplace of Skiing?

clock 22nd November 2012 | comment0 Comments
Many resorts claim to be the birthplace of skiing, including St. Moritz and St. Anton. Morgedal in Norway, has a pretty good claim too — and with skiing being a mode of transport during winter in parts of the country, I reckon it's a pretty good shout out. So, here's what they had to say on the matter. Morgedal is the birthplace of skiing, or to be more correct, snow sport. People have used skiing as a mode of transport for over 4000 years. However in the 1800s, downhill skiing as we know it today was influenced like never before by Sondre Norheim from Morgedal. A charismatic character who changed ski design and gave us the world's first carving ski and full heel binding. Where he ... [More]


Warren Miller's Flow State

clock 16th November 2012 | comment2 Comments
Last night I was lucky enough to be at the London premiere of Flow State, Warren Miller's 63rd film — and my favourite to date. As always with the Warren Miller tour, the whole evening was great fun. There was a drinks reception sponsored by Asahi beer — which went down well — goody bags, that included ski locks, wax and stress balls, and the always popular prizes — featuring a Warren Miller suitcase and a pair of Rossignol world cup skis. But, you don't want to hear about that, you want to hear about the film. Flow State is my favourite Warren Miller film to date, the overall feel of the film seems to have changed and the abundance of powder keep the 400 strong ... [More]

How to Become A Ski Instructor — Part 2

clock 13th November 2012 | comment0 Comments
In part two of our How To Become A Ski Instructor, ICE's Mark Jones talks about taking your BASI Level 2 and what steps to take to be able to take your first ski lesson. If you missed part one, give it a quick read first. BASI Level 2 (10 days) The course is physically demanding, as you will spend two blocks of five days involved in lectures, self-study, skiing/riding and teaching. While it is not necessary to be an amazing athlete it does help to have a good level of personal fitness which in turn helps to reduce fatigue and potential for injury. You can greatly help yourself by being familiar with the BASI manuals and in particular the fundamentals of technique and the central theme. B... [More]
