What is a ski pass?
a ski pass is a card that is usually valid for 6 days if you are staying for a week. This allows you to use any ski lift or shuttle up the mountain for you to ski on the piste (slopes).
at the end of your holiday, you can give it back for your deposit, or keep it as a souvenir.

The oldest and most accurately documented evidence of skiing origins is found in modern day Norway and Sweden. The earlies…t primitive carvings circa 5000 B.C. depict a skier with one pole, located in RÃ¸dÃ¸y, an island in the Nordland region of Norway. The first primitive ski was found in a peat bog in Hoting, Sweden which dates back to 2500 or 4500 B.C. Joel Berglund reported in 2004 the discovery of a primitive ski, or "85cm long piece of wood", carbon tested by researchers in 1997 while excavating a Norse settlement near Nanortalik, Greenland. The primitive ski dated back to 1010, and is thought to be Greenland's oldest ski brought by Norsemen circa 980 A.D. 2. It is centuries old, exact origins unknown. Widely attributed to ancient Norsemen who began gliding on long flat boards to cross vast snow covered distances more quickly. They called this mode of travel "shee" or "skee." Norseman who had to deal with downhill sections carried a stick -- the first ski pole -- which they dragged between their legs as a primitive brake. Lift served downhill skiing evolved in Europe prior to World War I, and became popular in the USA in the 1930s. Cross country and downhill skiing did not become thought of as separate sports in this country until Hannes Schneider brought the Arlberg method to North Conway NH in the late 1930s.

If you are talking about racing, the rules are governed by theFIS. For recreational skiing there are rules of etiquette and in the USA(and elsewhere) safety rules are law in some states (such asColorado's Skier Responsibility Code). SKI SAFETY EXAMPLE (from?) 1. Respect for others Peopl…e using the pistes must behave in such a way that they do notput other people in danger or harm them, either by their behaviouror with their equipment 2. Speed and behaviour People using the pistes must adapt their speed and behaviour tosuit their personal abilities as well as the general terrain andweather conditions, the state of the snow and the density of thetraffic 3. Choice of route A skier or snowboarder coming from behind must choose his route insuch a way that he does not endanger skiers or snowboarders ahead. 4. Overtaking Overtaking can be done from above or below and to the right orleft, as long as the person doing the overtaking allows sufficientspace for voluntary (or involuntary) movements of the person he ispassing 5. Entering a marked run and starting off A skier or snowboarder entering a marked run, starting again afterstopping or moving upwards on the slopes must look up and down theslopes that he can do so without endangering himself or others. 6. Stopping on the piste Unless absolutely necessary, a skier or snowboarder must avoidstopping on the piste in narrow places or where visibility isrestricted. After a fall in such a place, a skier or snowboardermust move clear of the piste as soon as possible. 7. Going up and down on foot People who are obliged to go up or down a piste on foot must usethe edge of the piste, taking care that neither they nor theirequipment is a danger to others 8. Respect for information, markings and signs Users must take notice of information about weather and snow/pisteconditions and respect all markings and signs on the mountain 9. Assistance Anyone witness to or involved in an accident is duty bound toassist, particularly by raising the alarm. If need be, and at therequest of the first-aid people, they must put themselves at theirdisposal 10. Identification Every skier or snowboarder and witness, whether a responsible partyor not, must exchange names and addresses following an accident. (MORE)
Skiing is probably one of the most popularwinter sports. Every year, millions of people would hit the snowy slopes forsome challenge and fun. Skiing is an equipment oriented sport and it would behard to enjoy this activity if you don't have the right equipment.. Skis were originally made from wood.… In themodern days, the common materials are fibreglass and aluminium. Skis are madefrom a variety of materials to provide various degrees of flexibility andstrength in parts of skis. Poles are also used to help maintain balance.. The first type of skiing was cross countryskiing. Skiing evolved from snowshoeing in Northern Europe and Asia where itwas a form of transportation. The Nordic was the first to do cross countryskiing, where they used loose toe straps as bindings on the skis and walkingsticks for balance. Then, downhill skiing came in the modern era. In 1850, aNorwegian, Sondre Norheim constructed a birch binding which allows skies to skiwithout losing them. Norheim bindings provide more control than leather straps,and perhaps were the first stiff bindings. Later on in 1896, firmer bindingswere developed Matthias Zdarsky, the skis allow a skier to turn moreeffectively. With more improvements made to skis, skiing became the popularwinter sports today.. Allskiers should be familiar with the rules of skiing, lack of technique andfailing to familiar the rules of skiing could result accidents. The rules are:. 1. Respect of others. 2. Control of Speed andskiing. 3. Control of direction. 4. Overtaking. 5. Crossing the Piste. 6. Stopping. 7. Climbing. 8. Respect for signals. 9. Conduct at accidents. 10.Skis. 11.Signs. (MORE)
Skiing was invented because some people were having trouble going trough the snow, so they used animal bones that they hunted down.
You need to be more specific with your question - statistic for number of skiiers, acidents, skii lift use, number of resorts, age of skiis. When asking questions of WikiAnswers PLEASE ask specific questions.

There were many changes in skiing. from how the ski was made to to technique. The Ski was originally made out of wood but now a days there is a thin piece of metal in the high tech ones with no wood found in any. Also the binding and boot has changed with the ski. The boots have now a warm linner w…ith a plastic shell with metal buckles. The binding is now made of mostly metal with some plastic. The technique is too much with out going into detail but trust me it has changes a lot! (MORE)

Ski Wax basically helps the ski Glide better on snow. There are some different types of wax, but your basic wax (forskiing/ snowboarding) creates a layer on the base of your ski (orboard) that helps maximize the the film of water that is createdbetween your ski and the snow, helping it to go faste…r, incombination with the small grooves on the bottom of your ski. You can tell if you need wax or not, when the base of your skisstarts going white, at the edges at first. There are differentwaxes for different snow temperatures, but you can mix these or buy'all-round' wax. (MORE)

Skiing was invented in Scandinavia where they used to speak Norse, the word skiing comes from the old Norse word skÃÃ° which translates as a stick of wood
There is no meaning for the word "ski ski" , its not a word. If you mean ski, then that is a sport . You can look it up on google, i dont have the complete definition. Good luck , QuestionGuru12
Yes, they would have skiing in the (biome) tundra. By the definition the tundra is an area with low tree growth and short growing seasons(because of the cold). Because of this the tundra is actually ideal for skiing in.
the places you can go the sites you can see and can be very romantic. but also great fitness and very fun some thing the hole family can take part in. :) x
Yes classic skis work fine if you rnot really serious about it but skate skiis work better
Jumping on skis is one of the many joys of skiing. It can be done by beginners just hitting little bump or an expert doing inverted tricks on massive gap jumps. But basically all of them are the same. First of all you need to go by once first to see the landing. When doing the jump there are four th…ing to focus on; approach, takeoff, maneuver, and landing. At the approach you want to have the right amount of speed, this is some you will just have to feel and will get better at as you get more experience. Generally though you will need more speed than expected. having said that, it's still important to start slow. When controlling your speed coming in to the jump its much easier to slow down then it is to speed up. When slowing down the basic technique is a speed check, this is just a short little turn to slow you down a bit. Its kind of like a fish tail, you just kick out the back end of your skis a bit, the more you do it the more you will slow down. Then When you go off the jump(the takeoff) it's important to pop (push off). This will give you more height and distance, but more importantly it will give you more stability. Without popping it's very hard to execute a clean jump. The pop should take place right as the tips of you BINDINGS go off the lip of the jump. the pop should be a quick sharp movement. Another important thing while taking off is to keep your center of balance forward. This does not mean lean forward from above you hips, it means keep your whole body in a fairly straight line with your legs and body forward. (unless doing an inverted jump, then this is all different.) It is especially important to remain forward when doing a trick like a 360. You axes need to be forward. Now the maneuver is the cool part. You can do all sorts of things. But the important thing is make sure you have plenty of time to spot your landing. DON'T FREAK OUT WHEN YOU ARE IN THE AIR OR YOU WILL CRASH. Then the landing, this can make or break the jump. But if you have put yourself in the right position so far you will find it quite easy. Just bend your knees and land as if you where landing on the ground in shoes. Except don't try to land on your toes. More generally when finding a jump (for beginners) don't pick one with too steep of a take off. It will pitch you backward more and make it hard to land. Further more when picking jump look at the landing if it's flat it may look easier, but it will jolt you hard when landing. A nice smooth DOWN-SLOPING land is much, much eaier and wont hurt. Another important, important thing is knowing how to fall. If you are falling back NEVER put your hands back behind you like a skateboarder. This is how people break wrists and dislocate shoulders. The best thing to do is have your legs hit first and then sprawl out at absorb the impact with not just one place on your body. The best way to jump is when your confident. (MORE)

A skiing holiday is a holiday where you use ski's (long pieces of carbon fibre on your feet) to travel over snow covered ground, whether that be downhill, across flat ground, or even a little uphill.

There is freestyle, where you do tricks off jumps and rails. There is slalom, where you race between two sets of poles. Alpine skiing, or downhill skiing, where you just go skiing for the fun of it. Cross country skiing, in which you push yourself forward on mostly flat terrain using your poles and… skiis. Well, there's some! (MORE)
Where the binding is mounted is all about personal preference. If you ski terrain park, a center mount could be more your style, where as if you ski all mountain, you may wish to mount farther back. Many skis come with a "recommended" line. You may wish to go from there. If you have further question…s, any tech at your local ski shop should be able to answer all of your questions, and mount the bindings for you! (MORE)
The carving shape coming from snowboarding to make more fluent turns so you can keep your speed quiet constant in a corner and are able to accelerate when coming out a turn.
Skiing isn't played. But you do it when it is winter and there is snow on a ski hill
There are lots of ski resorts in Italy, including some of the largest in the world (Dolomiti Superski). Remember that Italy has some of the highest mountain in western Europe, They run almost the whole length of Northern Italy and there are some further south in the spine of the country
This is an extremely broad question, so my answer is very broad. Anywhere with a good mountain and good snow.
Ski is the abbreviation of skiing, and skis are the long pieces of carbon fibre (although other materials are used) that you attach to your feet to glide across the snow. In other words, skis are used to go and ski / go skiing.
Yes, but not like skating. If the ski hill gets icy, you can still carve over it, as long as your edges are sharp.
Ya if you have skis, are in the mountains, and there is snow you can ski anywhere!
DU is a Private university in Denver, Colorado With the nations number one Alpine and Nordic combined Team. they have many NCAA titles.
The basic answer would be yes. This is because you have to buy or rent skis, boots and poles, and you have to buy a jacket, base layer, mid layer, gloves, helmet (this one is NOT optional!!!) and goggles. You also have to get a lift ticket. Skiing is so rewarding, however, that the cost is very wort…h it. It is my passion and I recently got some friends into skiing and for the first time ever they can't wait until winter. It is very fun, gives you a good work out and believe it or not it can be a good way to meet people. (MORE)
One can easily ski in September in the Andes (for example, at Portillo) or in New Zealand. As for the Northern Hemisphere, when September would be late summer, the answer varies. Sometimes, snow lasts into September at very high altitude ski areas with glacial fields, such as Mt. Hood or Colorado's …Arapahoe Basin. More often, new snow for the new season has arrived in time for some un-lifted skiing on snow fields in the high Rockies; "un-lifted" being that one needs to hike up the snow field. Rarely is there enough skier interest to make it affordable to keep as staff around to run the lifts. Un-lifted skiing can also be practiced sometimes in Scandinavia, Austria, or Switzerland, though lately this has been increasingly rare. Especially in the Alps, the glaciers are shrinking. (MORE)
Bindings. These are devices that are permanently attached to the ski (with hidden screws). The boots snap into these bindings holding them at the toe and heel. They are designed to release when the skier falls and there is sudden and/or strong force pulling or twisting them apart, to prevent injury.… (MORE)
Yes, you can, but there's not much snow there, so I'm not sure how easy it is to find a ski resort. Try to check in your local area if there are any skiing places around.
The more turns you make the slower you go. So I suggest the faster you wanna go, the less turns make and drive in a straight row, while this may be dangerous because if you go really fast and there is some bump on the hill, then you can end up with a broken leg.
It gives you something to do during the winter, and its something you can do with friends and family. It helps your legs and little on arms maybe stomach. I have skied for 40 years and was on ski patrol for several. Skiing works your entire body and improves your sense of balance. If you just sk…i the bunny slope, then you aren't going to get that much of a work out. (MORE)
To glide- use polls, keep your legs straight and skis straight and push. To stop- make a pizza shape with your skis or/and use your polls to help you stop. You can also make S shapes to slow down. To change direction, put weight on opposite foot.
It depends what kind.....Cross-country skiing at a good pace (generally on a rolling hills terrain to very hilly) is proven to be the best sport for you. Skate-skiing works nearly every muscle!!

It can be. Alpine skiing means downhill skiing while nordic skiing is cross-country skiing. Freestyle is part of alpine, but instead of just going down the mountain freestyle is specifially jumps, grinds tricks etc.
The plural spelling is skies . A consonant-Y ending to a word usually results in it changing the Y to I and adding -ES. The word sky's is the singular possessive form of the noun sky. The use of the apostrophe S ('s) indicates that a noun that follows belongs to that noun. An apostrophe sh…ould almost never be used to indicate a plural. Example: The sky's color darkened. The noun 'sky' is a countable noun (plural 'skies') as a word used when referring to the weather or specific atmospheric conditions. The noun 'sky' is an uncountable noun as a word for the atmosphere that surrounds the earth. (MORE)
