Travel across the hill, with both skis tipped onto their uphill edges. Keep more of your weight on your downhill ski. Each ski should track and not slip or skid sideways, losing the edge. Stand in a balanced, upright position with the uphill ski and the uphill side of the body slightly ahead. Target and side cut traverses.

Key Performance Focus

  • Body faces intended direction of travel
  • Skis maintain a parallel attitude
  • Skis leave two clean lines as they travel perpendicular to the fall-line
  • An ideal amount of pressure control and edge control will prevent the skis from turning up the hill
