The ideal first skis to teach beginners - they strap onto any shoe or boot and work great on hard frost and snow. Mini skis have a heritage dating back to the 1970s, when they were developed in Canada and became popular in Scandinavia and the Alps. While your deep stabilizer muscles are at work keeping you upright on the short skis, you’ll intuitively bend your knees to further improve control as you move. They're safe for girls and boys of all ages and perfect for Alpine and Nordic skiing practice, the garden or day trips. Also great fun for competent skiers who love to practice tricks and jumps. The classic Nordic design, versatility, quality material, variety of colours and our money back guarantee make this the perfect gift!

Description

Perfect for Technique! Team Magnus mini-skis help develop optimal skiing posture from the start. Our classic beginner skis have the ideal design to build perfect technique for downhill or cross-country skiing. Thanks to the short 65 cm length, the beginner instinctively hones core balance. Longer skis allow for lazy, upright habits, and are best introduced later. Ski poles are avoided in ski schools and for beginners, as they detract from building intuitive balance and add a risk for learners.

Simple to Use! Our high-quality ski straps are made in Sweden with a highly secure buckle. The skis attach firmly to any shoe or boot, which gives a good sense of control. The weight, at 0.6 kilograms for a pair, is very low for such robust skis. This allows for easy transport and carriage. Because the Team Magnus mini skis work well for all kinds of footwear and sizes, sessions can be kept brief and fun which is highly motivating for kids as they learn how to ski.

Versatile! The durable HDPE plastic skis can be used to train on frosty grass or to practice in deep snow. Thanks to the generously sized straps, quality buckles and round tips, Team Magnus skis are suitable for toddlers as young as 3 and up to adults with a shoe size 10 (UK). Depending on your style of footwear, you can use the two different slit options on the skis to optimize the strap positioning.

Robust! Team Magnus mini skis are made in Scotland in top grade HDPE plastic, lightweight for children to carry but rugged enough and wide enough to handle weight up to 80kg. The durable nylon straps are made in Sweden with long-lasting stainless steel buckles for safety. Our skis are a quality product which will be used year in, year out as you build confidence and develop your ski tricks!

Ideal Gift! Mini skis are a highly respected way of introducing skiing skills to kids. They’re mostly used by older kids with strong skiing confidence for casual tricks and jumps. A great gift for children who are about to experience their first holiday in the snow, or for older kids who love a fun challenge and have the skills to cope on short skis. Available in 8 different colours!

A ball
We had a ball on these last weekend. We've seen similar in the Alps and they're such a laugh - we used them before the snow rained away. didn't even have to get in the car!

Perfect for learning and for outdoors fun
3 boisterous kids, a cold frosty day. Options: a day in front of the TV squabbling over the remote or the games console. Or, some fun with stumpy skis that will soon expose poor skiing techniques. All done on a gentle slope in the back garden. Brilliant. The Scandinavians think it is a good fun way to learn and practice - so do I now. And, the kids are still outside with rosey cheeks and smiles.

Avoid deep snow
Deep snow in the Perthshire alps had us racing up the nearest hill to test out our skis. I think maybe a smaller slope might have been a better place to start. One of the boys made it look fabulously easy as he slid off down the hill like a rocket. A few wobbly game adults gave it a try but the skis are seriously fast on the powdery snow. When we've used them in the past on light snow and frosty grass they were much easier for cautious souls like me. I loved watching one of the boys slide down the hill in what appeared to be his boots - white skis - BRILLIANT!!

Rory age 7 had a fantastic day last week in the garden on Team Magnus stumpy skiis. He found them fantastic on shallow snow and easy to move on and carry around. He said there is nothing negative about the product and couldn't believe five hours had passed playing on them! THANK YOU TEAM MAGNUS

Absolutely brilliant!
My 3 children were given these as Christmas presents last year and we have been waiting for snow ever since! We were initially confused by the straps but my 11 year old daughter soon sorted us out. The skis didn't come off at all and the children have had hours of fun. They were easy to use for a 6, 9 and 11yr old. Team Magnus - my children are so glad we have discovered you!

Unique, UK made and brilliant!
I met Team Magnus recently and found out how the husband and wife started their business over 1 year ago with some great products designed by themselves. after just 12 months they have an amazing range with my favourite being the stumpy skis. I bought several pairs for the family for christmas as they are unique, simple, inexpensive and useful.. I have also been told that if I ever manage to break one through normal use Team Magnus will replace free of charge.. How often do you hear that these days? Team Magnus has a fantastic product range that deserves every success and credit.
