The SKI EASY Kick off meeting was held on February 4 February for those who could attend locally, with a short introductory session on the execution plan for the ski workshop the next morning on a ski slope near the hotel. Teams from Italy (CRMS-FVG), Slovenia (SRC and SITAS) and Croatia (UNIZG- KIF) presented their best practices of ski teaching – early steps in teaching skiing acquisition. While the Italian and Slovenian partners presented the best practices on how to teach children the first steps on snow, the Croatian team presented their practices on how to conduct ski lessons for PE students, with the consecutive goal: to learn to ski and to learn the methodology of teaching skiing. The result of this workshop is video material, which allows us to take further steps in the development of SKI EASY, a unified model for teaching skiing.

In the afternoon, all participants (on-site and online) gathered for the second part – the kick of meeting, where the first minutes were reserved for the introductory words of the project leader, Rado Pišot, and the introduction of the partners’ team members to get to know each other.

In addition, the general information (introduction of the goals, members and objective of SKI EASY Board, planned activities and other important data for the successful implementation of the project activities were presented by Saša Pišot (project coordinator). The most important information on financial management was presented at the end of the meeting by Barbara Pandev (from SRC Center for Project Management).
