In the last session we were looking at just introducing the feeling of rolling our edges on through the last part of the turn
Today we're going to take that on a step
and make it happen earlier , link those turns together much better
picking up the speed,and really changing up the shape of the turn that we're doing
Let's get started it
Up until now we've been fairly patient through the start of the turn
Today we're going to start replace that patience with much more commitment at the start of the turn
The way I want you to think of that, is almost imagine that there's a door below you
and as you start that turn you're not you not only going to be patient and let the skis come round,
you're gonna to try and let your body go towards that next turn
much more commitment.
There.So I'm going into that next turn with commitment ,
I feel the edges build up through the last part of the turn,
and then go into it with commitment.
A great way to feel this happening is by focusing on the downhill legs,
so the ski with the weight on it.
Rather than trying to straighten it and push away from that next turn to come around the next corner ,
we're going to soften it .
What I mean by softening is bending it slightly ,and feeling the weight coming of it
and allowing your body to then fall in towards that next turn.
If I push off in a straight kind of aggressive way,
my body's actually going away from that next turn.
We want them to go together.
I can feel my leg softening as a lift the weight off the downhill ski
and my body moves towards the next turn.
My turns are starting to feel a lot more dynamic ,
since I finished one turn, I'm starting the next.
My body's moving towards the next turn with much more commitment
You should be feeling the ski working much more for you now.
A nice smooth edge at the end of the turn and then a confident start to the next one.
Let's try some shorter turns.
