**Hok skiing isa sport that combines alpine skiing and snowshoeing. The skins under these skisallow you to move faster than with snowshoes and provide a good grip, especially duringthe ascent. The gliding technique is not too complex to master and although agood physical shape allows a certain ease, you can slide without too muchdifficulty only after a few minutes. Balance and synchronization areput to the test, especially while going downhill, but the effort is rewarded tothose who know how to be persistent.
Period of time:
Early January to late March / earlyApril, depending on the snow conditions
Hok skiing rentals includes:
The 125 cm Hok ski is the best substitute for snowshoeing. It is easy to control andto use for a skier with less skiing experience.
The 125 cm is more suitable for general use and as a replacement for snowshoes.
The 145 cm Hok ski has a little more of a “ski” feel and is more suitable for thosewho wish to use Hoks in a more top-down manner. The 145 cm has a little moreglide to it and offers more buoyancy for deep snow and taller skiers.
The 99 cm Balla Hok is an ideal ski for a child who is learning to ski. It is slowerthan an ordinary ski, but it is stable, simple to use. The Balla Hok,especially when combined with a universal binding as proposed, can fit for a 5years old child but can also fit for an 8 or 10 year old, depending on theskills of the child.
