Transition – Snowboarding to Learning to Ski


For new riders, your first time on a snowboard is almost always frustrating as you are trying to learn how to stay balanced and how to torque the board. Nonetheless, don’t give up, the pain and frustration are just part of the initiation to enjoy riding down the icy slopes. Also, bear in mind, Snowboarding and Skiing are similar sports in several ways. Although they are comparable, both offers a different kind of snow experience. So, if you are an individual who loves to ride or ski down the icy slopes, these adventures are sure to be looked forward to every winter sports season.

There is almost no carry-over from knowing how to Snowboard as there are no shortcuts to skiing. However, you’ll likely find it easier to transition from Snowboarding to Ski if you just get standard narrow shaped skis to learn on. Ski isn’t like snowboarding where you can just fudge but the snow works, and the standard narrow shaped skis have the grasp of the concepts of weight transition. On Ski, you’ll love the sensations and the freedom to move independently and the steer, suspension devices on both feet. Below are four important lessons to learn when transitioning from skiing to snowboarding.

Lesson one: Make sure you know to purchase or ensure you have the latest equipment for beginners to make snowboard or ski learning as easy as possible. After all, learning skiing is easier to learn but harder to master and more intuitive for beginners than snowboarding. This is because what separate the two, skiing means both legs remain separated at a low speed, and it has a steeper learning curve than snowboarding.

Lesson two: In skiing, an individual must take up training, either from a professional or from a friend who has experience and the ability to teach as he or she been skiing for many years. With proper lessons, it will help you enjoy skiing better, and you’ll probably pick up faster than most. After the first lesson, with determination and practice, an individual will be surprised how quickly he or she can learn the basics like kiteboarding tricks. You will need to learn it first then you can jump over to toeside and look stylish doing it.

Lesson three: After taking lessons, the skier has a peripheral vision and can see exactly where he or she is going. However, remember that skiing is side-on and so the beginner has less peripheral. Also, skis have side cuts and the physics of the turn is basically identical; don’t forget to turn 90 degrees. In the sector, skier needs to pressure their front foot to roll onto an edge to initiate a turn, then pressure the front of their boots/toe/skis and roll onto the two edges to start the turn.

When this world no longer feel like home!


What do many do when this world no longer feels like home? Where do they turn when America, a place many have call home for a long time no longer feels like home? How can they find peace in a nation, the place that once brought joy and warmth to many hearts? How can a nation turn from a warm, loving, peaceful place to just feels cold and alienated? These are questions many are struggling with today.

Many American citizens may still hold an American passport. However, they no longer feel like an American. They don’t believe in their heart America is home and it certainly not in their mind to call America home. Because so many no longer feel as if this world is a place they can call home the only question is: where do they go from here? As many are currently searching for answers. Here is my response: many needs to go to God.

If we as people, no longer feel like America is home we should be willing to do what is necessary to bring healing to this nation. 2 Chronicles 7:14 King James Version (KJV) say, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

With all the turmoil going on in America today some feel like what is there to look forward to? Some want to go somewhere new away from America overseas but all American people need to do is turn to God, seek forgiveness, and pray, God will be available for us. He is faithful and just and will forgive us. Also, he will restore this world from evil things that are making us miserable, and even the danger that is hunting those we love.

I know the idea of the necessity of God may sound like a myth, but God is the answer. For the Americans who no longer feel this world is home because of the many evil things that are entering the head of a human being as man. And to the ones who want to get away from it all as they don’t have an answer as to what to do to find peace, I offer a solution. Yes, God is the answer to all who are seeking peace. In Him is where the rest is, He always available and he never gets tired of hearing his children prayers or helping us.
