Off piste is a very broad subject.What we're gonna look at today is something you're gonna find a lot of fundament.And that's tracked out powder,stuff that has lots of traffice over it and people skiing down.It's really important to keep the basic of what you got on the piste.The technique is exactly the same.We're gonna look at some tactics to help you * and good strong body position.
Quite challenging,but really good fun.Everybody's dream is to ski powder.But the reality is when you come off piste,a lot of time,it is gonna be this crud or chopped out snow.Each turn,my feel's different.Having a good solid bodyposition is gonna really help.And absolutely no hesitation between the turns--as soon as you're ready,go for the next turn.Trust the skis,they're gonna cut through these stuff.
My arms in front and a good strong pole plant are helping me link the turns .Once I finished the turn in control,I fully commit to the new turn without any hesitation.
You're really conscious about how you're standing.Keep those arms in front and line yourself up nice and smooth.The chest can face towards the tip of bottom ski,but if you start to loose your inside hand and getting loose,too...too much twisting and losing that balance,you're gonna really struggling the snow.Keep the hands there.Keep yourself lined up.
I'm staying in controls that I don't panic at the start of the turn.I feel the need to throw the skis around.Remember. Smooth, round turns.
It's not about being relaxed and floppy and too loose.But if you're really stiff and rigid.Every single bump and rock you're gonna hit is gonna really throw your balance.And that's what's happening.So keep yourself firm , don't go rigid .
Skiing various snow like this is excellent practice for your ski in general.From piste to powder,it's all about going the basic ride and crud will highlight areas you need to work on.
Have faith in skis,even though the snow look really choppy ,they will cut through it .Sometimes,the snow might look quite flat but underneath,it could be quite choppy.Keep the position there,relax those legs and let them absorb everything.
There're obstacles down here.Some looking ahead and crossing my run.Knowing where I'm going would give me a lot more time and let me ski the whole slope as a round.
Keep these tips in mind and you'll find you start to enjoy the crud instead of trying to avoid it.
