Use this lunchtime drill to keep your weight forward. Then take it to the slopes to power through every turn.
THE BACK SEAT: It might have been cool in high school, but it’s dreaded on the slopes. “If your weight is over your heels, you can’t use the skis’ shape to your advantage,”says instructor Megan Harvey. Shaped skis are like front-wheel-drive vehicles: You want the mass of the drivetrain up front in order to pull and steer you through a turn. To keep yourself in a forward position, practice this drill during your lunch break: Stand in your boots on a flat surface and move your weight over the balls of your feet.
