flocon
Flocon lesson

play 1• Series of 7 to 8 snowplough turns with the skis brought back to the parallel position in between, over a suitable marked out course.

play 2• Elementary direct line across the slope following a roughly straight trajectory.

play 3• Test of balance when skiing while facing down the slope (with little jumps, from one foot to the other or over little bumps, etc.) on a gentle slope.

- Can control his/her speed and cross the fall line using snowplough turns.

- Retains his/her balance while sliding faster with skis parallel both across and down the slope, on both skis or from one ski to the other, over smooth terrain on a gentle slope.

- Can brake and stop and is starting to be able to sideslip.

1ere-etoile
1ère etoile lesson

play 1• On a moderately steep slope, series of elementary sideslip turns over a suitable marked out course.

play 2• Direct traversing line following a curved trajectory.

play 3• Step turns on a gentle slope (starting off at an angle).

- Can complete a series of elementary sideslip turns taking into account external factors (terrain profile, other users, snow quality, etc.).

- Retains his/her balance when sliding across gentle to moderately steep slopes.

- Is starting to be able to sideslip (uphill swing, at an angle).

2eme-etoile
2ème étoile lesson

play 1• Series of around ten perfect elementary turns over a suitable marked out course on a moderately steep slope.

play 2• Basic direct line passing over hollows and bumps.

play 3• Basic skating step.

- An complete a series of smooth elementary turns, crossing the fall line with skis parallel and can complete turns with an uphill swing taking into account external factors (terrain profile, other users, snow quality, etc.).

- Can ski over hollows and bumps, across or down the slope, while retaining his/her balance.

3eme-etoile
3ème étoile lesson

play 1• Series of around ten basic turns imposed by 10 to 12 poles on a moderately steep slope.

play 2• Basic single garland on a moderately steep slope.

play 3• Perfect direct line to build up speed, finished with a braking sideslip, all on a moderately steep slope.

- Can complete a series of short- and medium-radius basic turns with skis parallel, taking into account and compensating for external factors (terrain, users, type of snow, etc.).

- Can maintain his/her balance in a schuss over varied terrain (hollows and bumps).

- Is improving his/her lateral balance using successions of sideslips interspersed with direct traversing lines (garlands).

etoile-bronze
Etoile de bronze lesson

play 1• Non-timed line assessed by the pupil's ability to complete perfect basic turns, with two changes of rhythm on a varied slope (alternating medium, short and medium-radius turns through 15 to 20 gates).

play 2• Basic wedeln.

play 3• Passage over bumps with slight take-off on prepared piste or terrain (skiercross-type run).

- Can complete smoother basic turns by reducing sideslip.

- Can ski using high-speed and broad turns taking into account and compensating for external factors (terrain, users, type of snow, etc.).

- Can maintain his/her balance in a schuss when taking off from rounded bumps, on piste or in a specially prepared area such as a skiercross courses.

- Is getting used to skiing in all kinds of snow.
