How to Jump on skis Part 1
This is a sample from our full tutorial packthe one hour long Shredder Beginner Pack! thats now available at stompittutorials so the first thing we are going to go through in this tutorials is popping how to pop of theground and get some air this is essential to get the height you need off jumps thenwe go through ollies which is a fun but tricky technique which is very useful to get ontorails or jump over stuff and then in part 2 we go through how to hit the kickers Thedifference between ollying and popping is that when poping you take of from the flatbase of the ski while ollies you do it from
the tales of the ski. Stand shoulder widthapart and bend down then pop a lot. When you bend down make sure your body weight is centered.A fter trying this a few times try it with a little bit of speed when you do this withspeed really make sure you pop straight up and land with your skis flat again when youlanded popping with speed it is time to move onto ollies ollies are different from popping in the way that you have to use your arms a lot moreand you have to lean back so you roll of the tails from this angle you can really see howI take off from the tails here. If you take off to hard from the tails that will resultin a nose heave landing, if you land on your
noses it is not so good if you do it off abigger feature. In order not to land nose heavy ollie up and level out and fall down and landflat on your skis again once you got this down its time to try it with a bit of speedactually I think itÂ´s a lot easier with speed see here I use the arms I roll of the tailthen up it takes quite a lot of effort but it is an important technique to learn. Notice the body weight is over the tails bending the skis the legs are still a little bit bentand pushing up then I extend the legs fully in the end. When you got this try jumpingover a pole on the ground then have a friend hold it up for you. In how to jump on skispart 2 we will go through how to hit your

The Steepest Race in Europe Red Bull 400 Planica 2013
My first goal is to get into the finals. The second goal is to get into the top 10. It was extremely hard. My legs are burning so much. She did it this year. Next year everything might be different. I had to sprint at the end. I had to fight and it turned out great! Last time, the race was in September. It's May now and my legs are just not working yet. I had the feeling we were running quite slowly. We started attacking Arslan together and I really wanted to pass him too in the last 50 meters, but there was just nothing left in my legs. As we were approaching the final part, I was concentrating on conserving my strength for the final few meters.
Arslan started to slow down and I felt he could be beaten so I pushed as hard as I could.
Red Bull 400 The hardest 400m Run in Europe
I am fascinated by their courage, the determination and the level of fitness they need to overcome this steep hill. Back when I was still a skijumper and we started building Planica, it was even steeper around 45 degrees on the steepest part. The profile of the hill today is more beautiful and not as hard, but it's definitely not easy to conquer. I can remember doing the measurements, when I had to crawl up the hill and barely held on. These guys will be running up the hill today and I think that's fantastic. I was third last year and then second this year in Kulm. The polish competitor who won in Kulm is also coming. Then there are our guys: Nejc Kuhar, Simon AlicÌŒ and a couple of others. It's going to be a tough fight to get into the first ten. Second place again. It's better than third and worse than first place. I hope I can get the first place one day.
Your legs become heavy and you move with more and more difficulty. You don't know what to expect of your breathing. It's extremely hard. You can just hope to make it to the finish line. If I didn't compete in the relay race as well, I might have been able to get closer or possibly beat Arslan today. I think he wasn't that strong today.
