Nordic skiing has been around for about 5,000 years. It likely developed as a method for hunting. Skis were carved out of wood. In Scandinavia, skiing was a major mode of transportation before it became a sport. Alpine skiing required more sophisticated bindings to hold the toes and heels to the skis. These were developed in the late 1800's. Downhill skiing originated in the European Alps.
Alpine Ski Poles. Our ski poles for men give you the perfect balance of low weight and durabilty. Like our skis and boots, they are designed and developed in-house at Atomic in Altenmarkt.
Depending on how house-proud you are, you can either wash down your skis in the shower or outside using a garden hose. Give the skis a good clean with water and your cloth, but avoid power hosing the bindings. You don’t want to push water into the binding mechanism. Once your skis are dry, give them a gentle brush with the grain of the bases.
