CERN Ski Club site dead?

Post by Whitey » Tuesday 3 March 2009, 11:35

Hello All,

is CERN ski club site, http://club-ski.web.cern.ch/club-ski/sn ... tutor.html, really gone forever? :cry:

The site had some really good hints and tips and animations about the swiss technique. Is the content nowaday available in somewhere else?

Thanx!

Hello,

The instructors at CERN are my friends. I have been teaching snowboarding in this Club for 15 years. So I asked them to find a solution to make their great and famous Tutorial pages available again. Those Web pages have been a reference over Internet about the Swiss rotation technique for many years.

So we are working on the question. Thank you!

A big "HURRAY" for the cern snowboard website.
It was through that site that I discovered a link to this rather incredible place, which showed photos of snowboarders that clearly had lost their edge and had fallen horizontally on the snow.
Until I looked at the short films - and then I realized that they did not fall down at all. It was their technique, which they called "extreme carving"!!!

And the rest is history :)

Ciao to all.

Famous animated GIF pictures

The following animated pictures are very famous and it would be sad to lose them.
My friend James Purvis made them 10-15 years ago already when appeared the first animated GIF pictures on the net. :bravo: He is working in computer science. He also wrote most of the texts.
