Ski "Randonnée" in Konsberg Ski center.

Yesterday we joint the group A who where in Kongsberg Ski center for their lesson of snowboarding. We went to do some kind of alpine skiing: called "ski randonnée". The idea is to go up with your skis like in cross country skiing, but instead of wax to not slip down, you use some "skins", you scratch under your skis when you go up, and you take it off when you go down.

The difference with cross country skiing is that you can go up in real deep snow, and much steep hills. The other difference is that you can fix you shoes like alpine shoes to go down.

This video shows you how easy it is to go up :)

And this video you can enjoy my fall when I came down, Like you can see it really looks like alpine skis when we are going down
