You got snow plough mastered
You feeling very happy and confident, you can control you speed and that plough
maybe even change the size a few times.
Once you got that dialed, you can look a chance to change direction, and doing some your called “snow plough turn”.
Everything being even at your snow plough, the ski wants to actually go that way, this ski wants to travel in this direction。
if you keep everything even, the weight nice and centered,
you count each other that you got a straight line.
What I’m do here is do what exactly I've done before.
Start to slide, pushing into a snow plough, and very very slightly push more on my right leg to actually change the direction and turn to left.
Let’s have a go.
So hands in front, looking forward, and Im gonna start to push more with my right leg and it start to wing, and take around to the left, so another go.
Make sure you start out a snow plough, pick up some speed, and turn the right ski more, and gently change the direction,
we are not linking the turns yet, we try it to the left, we now gonna try it to the right, so that’s left leg is gonna push out lightly harder.
Again, trying watch！
I’ve got a calm upper body, not twisting. I’m just pushing harder with that left leg. Gently let the turn work.
It’s not power steering, it won’t happen in split second, progressively, think it’s nice smooth turn, and rather than a sharp one.
Let’s go again. You probably find that one direction easier than the other, that’s normal, but keep practicing and remember , turn the foot and the ski will come around
It’s now we can start putting the turns together, and actually linking them down then down the hill. Don’t think of it as massive change direction.
Turning to the right ,turning that left ski, straighten up
spend a moment facing down the hill, then you can actually start your next turn.
We want to avoid feeling of trying to turn one fast sweep.
If you look back tracks , you gonna see a nice smooth ”s” shape, as it supposed to “zig-zag”. Let’s have a go.
Push back of left ski, and start to turn across the hill,
from here I can start push out back of right ski and point down the hill,
if I keep pushing that right ski, I’ll gradually turn around to the left
Remember , we want a smooth “S” not a “Z”.
Now we are linking the turns,
Remember the basics: my arms in front, I’m looking ahead , and make smooth gently movements.
Well done, first down skis. You should be feeling some control using the snow plough, and just have an idea, changing directions, gently down the slope.
The next time we gonna find much longer slope, not any steeper, but gonna give you more time to get into run
and I’m gonna really work on your turns and feeling that extra control, we are going to look to lose that snow plough towards end of the turn.
