Three types of advanced short turns!


These three different types of turns are pointed out here to give skiers an insiders view of how professional skiers change their approach to achieve and apply versatility.



Bullet Proof Short Turn. This is a tight forced lower radius arc, and with a transition without a traverse. Great warm up and tight spot one groomer width turn.





A more rounded developed arc, with an obvious flexing retraction of the legs. If you want to be secure on steeps and great for speed control.




A quick rebound turns, not really creating a round arc. These are high energy turns for a short burst or two, not an all day type of skiing short turn.
