This is your very basic form of skiing which doesn’t mean it’s not a lot of fun. You go down a slope in a reasonably straight line using skis with fixed-heel bindings. It’s the preferred method for the majority of people who go on ski holidays and essential for beginners.
A variation on Alpine is slalom skiing where the athlete has to twist and turn around a series of narrowly spaced gates. It’s a real test of skill and control and a big favourite with spectators at the Winter Olympics.
Every resort will have different types of Alpine skiing slopes ranging from the very easiest (blue) to the most advanced (black). That means there’s somewhere for everyone to enjoy their winter sports experience.
