We gonna take a look at line choice. Massively important.
We gonna take an average slope, like a blue run down here.
For the few obstacles on that and try look at a few ways to make it as easy for you as we can.
Looking ahead is the key and exactly the same as driving.
The faster you're skiing, the further you're looking down the hill.
Ski it as a slope, not just think about one turn and then the next, give you much more time to react to obstacles, trees, people, anything.
So let we go.
So there's my first turn. I'm already aware of the trees on my left and a slightly steeper pitch on the right.
I'm looking down the hill and I'm thinking where I'm gonna to be in the next few seconds.
Where you're looking is extremely important.
Stop this focus on just looking for the next turn.
Turn the eyes, look down the slope.
You gonna have much more time to avoid obstacles and you gonna start to ski it as a slope.
If you seek any flat, carry the speed onto it.
The flip side of that, if you seek any steeper, control your speed before you're on it and you'll have a lot more chance skiing it in control.
The first turns here I'm looking a couple of meters in front of my skis.
I haven't got a lot of idea what's coming up at me.
Now I'm going to start to keep my eyes much more down the slope and cause I'm looking where I'm going, I can anticipate the flat and start to let it run.
I hope you found that useful.
Remember if you are having problems, go back a step and try to link those turns together and make everything nice and smooth.
Rolling those edges on will help with the control and then try to look further down the slope.
Remember don't get obsessed with the individual turns, ski it as a run.
Next time we gonna be looking at engaging those edges a little bit earlier in the turn, skiing some steeper terrain and exploring the mountain a bit more.
The snow is great and I'm going to go for a ski.
