These sports, taken to the most crucial extreme, are considered adventure travel par excellence.
Extreme skiing and snowboarding hint at a degree of danger that surpasses that of regular and common trails.
Extreme skiing consists of going down quite a steep mountain with abrupt land, with nothing but your skis.
People who practice this activity have to deal with the fact that the land is not clean, therefore they have to use this technique in its maximum expression, giving priority to safety rather than to downhill speed.
Extreme skiing is practiced in the mountain, outside the scope of ski stations, so it is necessary to know the environment, the kinds of untouched snow, meteorology and climbing techniques.
Those who wish to discover new sensations having fun in the powder snow may have a raid into snowboarding. It is not necessary to know how to ski in order to perform this activity. Snowboarding movements are totally different from skiing movements. They are simple and easy to learn.
Just like extreme ski, you can choose the path along which you want to go. It also offers the possibility to make jumps and free falls that may amaze audiences with a great show.
The best way to do these sports is by practicing periodically in order to improve the technique and demanding from yourself only what your body can give.
