The Austrian downhill technique finds its personified poet in a stocky young Leo Gasperl, former apprentice mechanic, then record holder of the started kilometer at 135 kilometers per hour, a crazy speed that he achieved by desperately clinging to the handles he had attached to the spatulas of his skis. In the winter sports store esqui.online we commemorate his feat with a poster.
To present this sports breakfast, we have May, president of the Royal Spanish Winter Sports Federation, who has asked that politics not be an obstacle to the exciting project that is the candidacy of the Pyrenees Barcelona to host the Winter Olympics two thousand and thirty.

But two of them are part of the regular curriculum of the school, because the subject of physical education is carried out in many mountain communities by practicing winter sports, either on skis, Now, Or or cross-country skiing.
If Spain is a great country of the sun, a great country of the beach and I am the first to enjoy it. But we are here to claim that Spain is also a great country of mountains and snow.
Today, maybe it’s easy to say that because it’s snowing. It’s snowing. In Madrid, the capital of Spain, it snows in the Cantabrian Mountains. It leads to the Pyrenees and that promises a fantastic winter season. Year of the snow, year of the goods.
Certainly, if we are able to come from the sporting part, from the institutional part, from the state part and from the part of the snow industry and gathered all hand in hand under the brand of Spain is not we will always be stronger, more attractive, even more fun for the General Society, so that it can approach and practice our winter sports.
