• I have obtained Ourson level.
  • I control my speed and traverse across the slope using snowplough turns.
  • I remain balanced while sliding faster with skis parallel both across and down the slope on both skis or from one ski to the other, over a smooth terrain on a gentle slope.
  • I can brake, stop and start again myself.

Test :

  • Series of 7 to 8 snowplough turns with the skis brought back to the parallel position in between, over a suitably marked out course.
  • Parallel direct line across the slope following a roughly straight trajectory.
  • 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.



For 7 to 12 year olds

  • I recognise my ski equipment.
  • I can put on and take off my skis alone.
  • I control my speed and make turns.
  • I move around on skis in different ways over varied but almost flat terrain.
  • I can ski in a direct line facing down the slope and finish with a snowplough turn.
  • I earn my "Ourson" medal.

Test :
  • "Snaking" line of snowplough turns around 4 to 5 poles.
  • Ski with skis parallel straight downhill and stop using a snowplough turn.
