All Extreme Sports and Activities in Patagonia

Ski - Snowboarding

Ski - SnowboardingThese sports are considered adventure travel par excellence. Extreme ski consists of going down quite a steep mountain with nothing but your skis. People practicing this activity have to use this technique in its maximum expression, giving priority to safety rather than to downhill speed.
In order to practice this sport, it is necessary to know the environment, the kinds of untouched snow, meteorology and climbing techniques.
Those who wish to discover new sensations having fun in the powder snow may have a raid into snowboarding. It is not necessary that you can ski, as snowboarding movements are totally different from those of skiing. They are simple and easy to learn.
Just like extreme ski, you can choose the path along which you want to go. It also enables you to make jumps and free falls that may amaze audiences with a great show. The best about these sports is to practice them periodically so as to improve the technique and not aking more than what the body can give.
