I stumbled upon a a great You-Tube channel The Freestyle Underground and was intrigued by it’s mission to document the skiing moves of a forgotten generation of freestyle skiers.
Ski ballet was showcased for the 1992 Alberville Winter Olympics, and the event was in fact held here in Tignes. The slope, purpose-built for the event, is no longer in use since the sport has fallen into decline.
I’ve been working on a few of these ski tricks, mainly as beginner slope ‘show-off’ material, and was delighted to find some new learning material online.
Have a look at this you-tube clip, and gather some ideas for your next ski trip!
