Once you feel happy about committing to that lower ski,
you might find that top ski wants to come in and be much more parallel.
Let it happen.
A parallel turn wasn't invented by scientists,
if you're doing a good snow plough turn and your body position is working for you,
the ski will come in parallel.
The basics still apply.
Keeping those hands in front.
Once you've turned and committed to that downhill ski,
you can just feel that ski come and drift in.
So I'm going to commit to that right foot and feel the left ski drift in.
Nice and smooth.
Don't force it
and once it’s come in parallel
don't stand on to it, stay on the downhill ski.
We want to fully commit and balance on the downhill ski.
If the ski doesn't feel ready to come in,
don't force it, wait until it feels ready.
If you're having trouble getting that ski to come in parallel
don't just keep forcing it, Look at your body position.
If I twist myself and try to force the turn,
I'm going to pull that uphill ski more onto the edge and it's gonna stick.
And the harder I pull the more it's going to jam into the snow
Keep you body nice and straight,
looking for that next turn
and it will even help to open that knee
and let the ski slide in nice and smooth.
Feel the weight come off that ski and open the knee.
It shouldn't feel like something you've got to force,
it should happen quite naturally.
I think that was a really good day.
Now you should be feeling those skis coming nicely parallel at the end of the turn and much less strain on the legs.
It's really good for you to get a much longer run and have more time to get those turns working.
Next time our focus is going to be on keeping those skis parallel from the beginning to the end of the turn, all the way through,
picking up the speed slightly
and even finding some steeper terrain.
