Mini skis and Mobile Ski Jumping Hill
Mini skis is great, cheap and fun equipment to use for children who wants to try skiing for the first time. You just need normal shoes and some snow in your local community, school yard or in the street. You can also use them as balance training in the ski club. We also have had a lot of school projects with mini skis and the mobile Ski Jumping Hill. Below you will find images and videos from different activities on mini skis and video from the project 'Dream Day at School'.
The National Team in Ski Jumping in Norway also use this for fun training and balance training. See the video greetings from their mini ski training in november 2013 and from the womens activities in 2012.
