Artful skiing boils down to this: when, where and how you turn. The “when” and the “where” are totally up to you. The how, though, leaves less room for personal choice or impulse. Steering your skis, no matter when and no matter where, is best accomplished by turning—or, more specifically, twisting—your legs. Doing so without involving the rest of your body is crucial, but it’s harder than it sounds. This month, we show you how to separate the actions of your upper and lower body for strong and accurate turns. In doing so, you’ll separate yourself from most of the skiers out there.
