Turns on deep snow

Ski Turns on deep snow

When you meet on deep snow, it will be necessary, that you make use of the edge of your skis to turn correctly.

The action of your legs will be same like in any other type of surface; however the pressures that you will feel under your feet will change. You won't feel the pressure just below the side of your exterior feet; rather this pressure will be distributed for the whole plant of his feet.

According as you go creating the platform, the pressure will disappear moving toward the back of his feet. It is fundamental to learn to control this pressure, for this never we should incur in the error of joining legs because; it will be a loud disablement for your progression. The action of every leg should be independent.

Skiing on dust snow

Try you place yourself center position on the skis, applying pressure along both feet. When skis will be a little separated, Don't join them not to hinder the advance later.

Begin to slide, pushing downwards straightening up his legs. Fold your legs and go back to push downwards, as you did before. You will begin to sense that you catch on rhythm and that you are bouncing through the dust.

The moment that you feel comfortable with this sensation on the rebound, it will be when you will have to try to accomplish some small spins. For this, you should follow the following steps
  • While you sink, turn the legs as well as both knees very softly.
  • You will have to begin to feel the pressure under his feet, under the inside of a foot and the exterior of the other one.
  • Lean your pole and go back to bounce, turning to the other side.
  • Do not make the mistake of turning too much with the feet, perhaps think that you are turning too little, but you will verify that when you observe your footprints in snow it is not that way.

Skiing on potholes

The technique used to start with will be the following:
  • You should permit that your legs bend at the potholes, in order that when they come out of them they come back for themselves to the initial position.
  • The legs should be flexed, so that they soften undulations giving the necessary levelling to body.
  • You should try to hold the pressure under his feet all the time.
  • Place your pole just before the crest of every pothole, it will help you to have the head perfectly placed on the same level that the hand upon crossing the pothole.
  • In the top of every pothole, you will have to see the tension in your thighs and in the stomach
You will have to stretch his legs at the hole to maintain your body on the same level and to give space to his legs to shrink on the following pothole when coming out of a pothole.

Skiing at slopes

When you be going to slide over slopes of great inclination, it will be convenient for you to take the following into account:
  • Before beginning to slide, sink your knees in snow, in such a way that you may be left in front of the maximum line of slope. At that position, try to adapt to the situation, to the equipment and to the ground.
  • Sink and push the heels inside snow, such and as you come doing normally.
  • Lean on the walking pole and extend the bounce until the line, rotate your foot and turn your knees while he goes back to sink.
It's very important that you maintain the trunk looking toward below of the slope, something that claims more relevance according as slopes are more.
