Beginner Snow Skiing Lessons : How to Carry Ski Equipment

Beginner Snow Skiing Lessons : How to Carry Ski Equipment


Hi! This Is Dave Smith with Hillcrest Ski
and Sports in Gresham, Oregon on behalf of Expert Village. In this tutorial we will cover
beginning skiing. In this clip we’ll cover how to carry your ski equipment. Some ski
shops sell devices to help you carry your ski equipment, but if you’ve got 2 hands,
arms, and shoulders, you should be able to do the trick yourself. Let me show you a little
trick for carrying boots. Most boots have Velcro straps near the top. These make for
good handles that you can put over your shoulder. Undo both straps and then crisscross the straps
of each boot. Now you can place the boots over your shoulder and don’t have to worry
about carrying them with your hands. Next, grab your poles in one hand your skis in the
other. Alternately, you can carry your skis over your shoulder if you’re going a long
distance. When carrying your skis over your shoulder, it’s important to make sure that
you have enough clearance when you make turns so that you don’t knock anyone out.

  1. I love these guys – they demonstrate mistakes!
    Carrying the skis over the shoulder – the toe binding should be behind the shoulder, and you pull down on the tips – that way you dont need to worry about clearance, because the skis stick up over your shoulder at such an angle that people behind you are not in any danger anyway.

    Expert village? I hope their doctor knows what he/she is doing, because the resident ski experts are rubbish!
