Practice Snow Plowing

Michael Doyle
Spend time stopping, and turning, from the snow plow position until it becomes easy, and until you are comfortable enough to increase the length and grade of the slope where are you skiing. You can also learn these steps, or practice them without using any ski poles. However, I like to see people use poles because it gets them used to holding the poles while moving and aids balancing while moving. Practice and enjoy the day!
