Skiing must rely on equipment. On the basis of the general improvement of people's safety, skiing technology and equipment production, modern skiing puts forward high requirements for skiing equipment. For amateur beginners, one might think that there is a set of ski gear.

In fact, this is not right. The equipment you use directly affects your learning to ski. A good set of gear can make you learn to ski faster.

Let's take a look at what equipment do you need for skiing?

1. Ski suits.

Ski suits are generally divided into competitive suits and travel suits. Competitive clothing is designed according to the characteristics of the competition, focusing on the improvement of sports performance.

Travel clothes are mainly warm, beautiful, comfortable and practical. Ski suits are generally brightly colored, not only for aesthetics, but also for safety.

If skiing in the mountains, especially on the steeper slopes, away from established ski slopes, it is easy to cave in or become disoriented, in which case brightly colored clothing provides a good visibility for finding.

2. Ski goggles.

On sunny days, the snow on the pistes reflects the sun, making it feel like the light is strong, so you need to use ski goggles to block the light.

3. Snowboards.

Skiers should generally use shorter skis, which make it easier to learn some ski movements. If the skis are too long, it can be difficult to improve a beginner's level of skiing, especially when learning to turn and slow down.

For general beginners, men use 170-180cm skis, and women use 160-170cm skis.

4. Snow poles.

It is used for support during takeoff and body balance during taxiing. The length of the general ski pole is 90-125cm.

5. Gloves.

Ski gloves should be made of impermeable fabrics with good heat retention, otherwise the gloves will easily get wet when skiing.

6. Hip protector.

Choose something that is breathable but not sticky to the skin and has strong resistance, because such a butt pad can effectively relieve the impact of falls.

What are the benefits of skiing?

Enhance the balance ability of the human body: The essence of skiing is to master the process of balance, to find a balance point in the constant switching of the center of gravity, so as to make beautiful movements.

Enhance cardiorespiratory function: Skiing is an aerobic exercise like running and swimming, which can enhance cardiorespiratory function.

Only strong lung capacity and good cardiovascular system support can maintain long-term skiing conditions.
