Wedge Christie

As a turn is completed, a new turn is started with a rising motion by steering both skis towards the fall line, resulting in a wedge relationship. The skis become parallel through more active steering of the inside ski, using rounded turn shapes and no traversing. The parallel matching of the skis may be demonstrated in a variety of places in the turn, including the beginning, middle and end depending on speed, terrain or intent. A pole touch is optional.
