Winter Is the Time to Learn How to Ski or Snowboard!
The sports that make both small and big feel free and happy
In the midst of a beautiful snowy winter, we want to challenge you. Imagine that at very moment you are descending with ski or snowboard on a white slope in the mountain, and along with this a pleasant feeling of freedom and genuine happiness grasps you. How do you feel? If you often think you want to do so and experience exactly these emotions but something stops you every time, the following lines are right for you. The freestyle and freeride skier Tony Cheresharov and two snowboard instructors, Martin Antonov and Petar Parvanov, tell that the first step to such a challenge is much easier than you think.
Although the focus of the three athletes is in different directions – Tony is a professional athlete, Martin trains adults and Peter trains children, they are unanimous in their answers to the most common questions relating to skiing and snowboarding. They all share the view that, in order to start practising either of these two winter sports, we first need motivation. This is where the key to progress lies.
Perhaps it is at this point that you are wondering how motivation is most important, since winter sports also require equipment that costs considerable financial resources. Here again, the boys bring professionalism and confidence to us telling us that ski schools offer complete equipment for rent at affordable prices. According to them, it is not important whether we go in for skiing with brand new equipment or rented but how we feel while learning to go down the snowy slope.
Once we try, probably one of the sports we will like and want to develop more in it, Tony, Martin and Peter are convinced. Then there will inevitably come a time when we will want to invest in personal equipment. However, they advise again not to invest all our money but to choose what we need at an affordable price.
As our loyal assistant, of course, comes the MultiSport Card which gives us various opportunities to practice winter sports (see all tracks below). The best part is that we can do it with the whole family because for the youngest enthusiasts there are active children’s cards. What better way to spend a great weekend in nature with our loved ones?
Here we come to the question of whether sports are appropriate for children. All three guys strongly recommend that you take your kids skiing or snowboarding because as they ride, they feel really happy and learning something new but in a fun and entertaining way. In addition, children approach without fear which is a prerequisite for rapid progress and even greater brilliance in the eyes when it is present.
We end the conversation with the question of what winter sports give to those who practice them. With a broad smile on their mouth, Tony, Martin and Peter share that skiing and snowboarding give them everything – friends, an extraordinary connection to nature, a different worldview, freedom, peace, a true happiness. And you – are you ready for the challenge of finding them personally?
