REACH FOR SUCCESS Instincts are supposed to keep you safe. But on steep terrain they can get you in trouble. To initiate a new turn you must let go of the old one. Ignore your impulse to cling to the security of the hill and commit your body down the fall line.
CENTER JUSTIFIED Imagine standing barefoot on your skis. If you’re not centered, you’ll slide off. Try to feel the bottom of your entire foot against the ski.
SUPPORT SYSTEM A blocking pole plant stabilizes your upper body so you can shift your hips over your downhill ski to initiate the turn. Engage your core for extra support.
