Advancing Turns: Point Your Way Down the Ski Slope

Prepare to Turn

Mike Doyle
Once you have developed confidence in being able to go into the snow plow position, it is time to move into more smoother turns.

This can be done by pointing in the direction you wish to turn. To begin this exercise, start on a gentle, easy slope where you can comfortably slow your speed by using the snow plow position.

With skis flat on the snow and in a natural shoulder-width, hold your poles so that they are down but still in your line of vision, and let gravity start you down the hill.
