Abstract

The aim of this paper was to rank the most important didactic exercises for teaching the basic ski turn. Participants included 307 ski instructors and assistants teaching at different professional ski levels and coming from different countries. Participants were asked, via online survey, to rate the significance of exercises included in the formed model of the most important didactic exercises for teaching the basic ski turn. This model consisted of six different variables. The participants were divided in three groups based on their skiing ability level. In accordance with the study objectives, the rank-sum values (SR) of the most important didactic exercises for teaching the basic ski turn were calculated, as well as the appropriate empiric level of significance (p), which was calculated by using a nonparametric equivalent to post-hoc analysis, i.e. the Kruskal-Wallis test (H-test). Statistically significant differences were obtained between the values of ranking the most important didactic exercises for teaching the basic ski turn (H=138,62; p<0,001). The results of this study provide an accurate and scientifically-founded didactic setting for teaching the basic ski turn. This study sets foundations for the possible direction of future studies in terms of constructing measuring instruments. The practical application should provide better selection, as well as wider choice of modalities and training exercises in the process of training alpine skiers of various ages and different skiing ability levels.
