While some winter sports may be easy to learn, there are others that are extremely difficult to learn. If you want to learn certain winter sports, it takes a lot of time, a lot of patience, and a lot of practice. Here is a list of some of the most difficult winter sports to learn.
Ski jumping is the sport that involves a skier flying down a long elevated chute and soaring through the air for hundreds of feet, looking like a flying squirrel in the process. For people who master ski jumping, the sport is the ultimate thrill. However, it is extremely difficult to learn, and it is very easy to get injured doing this sport. It requires an incredible amount of technical expertise. It is definitely one of the hardest winter sports to learn.
Aerials, like skiing, involves flying down a steep hill and launching one’s self off of a ski jump. However, with aerials, the goal is to go as high as possible and to do as many tricks as possible before hitting the ground. Also just like ski jumping, it is incredibly difficult to learn and extremely easy to get injured doing. So, only attempt to learn aerials if you are a supremely gifted athlete and do not mind getting injured.
Luge is another extremely dangerous and difficult winter sport. Lugers fly down an icy trail going incredibly fast. The slightest wrong move means falling off of the sled and slamming into walls of ice that are very hard and that do not give at all. It is really difficult to both keep your composure and to master the technical skills that are required to prevent falling while you are luging. However, if you can master this sport, it is a lot of fun!
