6. Practicing stopping on snow (96 kB) [Index] - [<<] - [>>] - [All for February 23th, 2005] - []
Somewhere on Rapa Zapezii, a bit further up than Poiana cu Urzici (or Morarului), practicing stopping from a fall on snow. We've learnt to stop when falling from various positions (face or back front; head or legs first), with or without iceaxe as help.

Here we practice stopping with the iceaxe. Myself (in the front) have some speed and soon will start the moves to stop; Rudolf is a bit in the back and prepares to come as well after I'm done.
