Loving all these fun little teaching tools utilized at Sunkid leisure facility in the Austrian Alps. I’m kinda jealous of that V-Pizza Snow Scooter…I wonder if they make it in adult sizes?
The Sunkid hand ski is a methodical aid for beginners and advanced skiers. With the help of these visuals, the learning of elementary skiing techniques is implemented intuitively and playfully.
The V Pizza:
The V-Pizza helps children that are more secure on their skis and able to use the snowplough a little. Placed between the children’s skis, it keeps their legs in the snowplough position. Since the V-Pizza also has a steering rod, the young skiing beginners can hold on to it. This will automatically make them bend their knees.
The V Fly:
The V-Fly subsequently teaches the children to swerve “in the blink of an eye”. The skiing instructor steers the V-Fly into the desired direction while moving backwards themselves. The pupil will instinctively “bend their knee” on the side to which the skiing instructor pushes the V Fly.
