These 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.

We were surprised by the renovated Primeros Pinos snowpark, a winter sport training resort ideal for the people from the high valley.
Approximately 65 million years ago, a large percentage of vegetables and animals suddenly became extinct. It was in the late Cretaceous period and there are various theories about it. Some scientists attribute this event to a gradual process that finally led to selective extinction. Others assert that a catastrophe, such as an asteroid hitting the Earth, caused these species mass extinction.
Those who wish to experiment something new may choose a horseback ride over mountains, amidst forests, along beaches or across streams with the whole family enjoying beautiful moments.
It is ideal to go on these excursions guided by the local experts and on docile Creole horses.
If you are going on a short excursion, it is not necessary that you can ride. A quick theoretical chat with the guide will be enough for you to get used to the reins.
