Lesson Lexicon: Down Stem

Lesson Lexicon: Down Stem

Need a moment? Control your speed and gather your composure with this easy move.
posted: 10/14/2009

A downstem is a delay tactic of sorts. Push the tail of your downhill ski out slightly to create an immediate but brief skid. Use it like a brake check at any time, in any place, when you need an extra second to scout a roll, check your balance or set yourself up for a turn.
