Interesting facts about ski

Skiing is one of the fun sports in recent times among everyone. Kids are very much interested in doing this sport. This popularity is because ski can be played only during the winter season that is the perfect time where everything sets up. It is designed as a narrow strip of semi-rigid material worn underfoot to glide over snow. There are many different types of the ski which are used for a various style of skiing. The technique is fully sketched into ski so that the player can rule the game as they want. Ski is board is basically made of wood, in the 20th century the ski technology was adapted by Nordic to enable skiers at higher speed. To advance the technology they allowed for the development of special skis skating and even ski jumping.

How they developed

Asymmetrical skis were used by Finland and Sweden, on one leg the skier should wear a long straight marching ski and on the other leg used a shorter ski for kicking. The bottom of the ski will be either plain or it makes be covered with animal skin to maintain long ski and also for supporting the skier’s weight. Single long ski is a traditionally used which has only one pole was made especially long 3-4 meter used to slide into packed ice and to protect from ice cracks. Modern skis which are also called as cambered ski this arches up in the middle under the binding that spread the weight of skier evenly across the length of the board.

Early style skis had to be thick enough not to be downward and sink into the snow. But in recent times skis are designed to make possible to build a thinner, lighter and be flexed easily to absorb the shock of bumps. The design includes a side cut that narrowed the underfoot while tip and tail maintained wider. Skis were handcrafted out of a single specific hardwood such as Hickory and Birch because they have the density and ability to handle the speed and shock resistance factors associated with this racing. The two different layer of wood is laminated to each other where the top layer softwood is pasted on the base of hardwood. The glue used has no resistive power that leads to failure in those days. Later they developed strong, waterproofed glue that stopped the problem of splitting and warping, therefore it built much tougher laminated ski.

In the history of skiing, many types of skis have been built, designed differently according to their needs. Alpine ski has evolved enormously since the beginning of the modern sport. At an early period they used only wood but as technology, improvised people started to adopt various techniques for their convenience. And introduced steel skis which have steel edges, camber, side cut and possibly reverse camber. These skis are used only specific uses such as freestyle skiing, alpine touring ski, and monoski. Nordic skiing is not used for ski lifts to get up hills, and so they designed lighter so that it will be used for walking. Cross-country skis, Skating Skis, Ski jumping and Roller skis are different styles of Nordic each one is customized accordingly to have a long, wide and classic sliding.
