Tree Skiing Control

When skiing trees, keep your feet and legs together, tip the inside ski first, but keep them close. A wide stance only offers skis to become independent minded, especially if they are at different angles in the snow. The last thing you want to happen in the trees is skis going in different directions.

Thats a really good point. I have been working fall line turns alot here at Snowbird this winter. With so many enjoying medium and long turns in trees and chutes, I have been playing with fall line turns either in tree or next to them.

The in South Chute in Wlibere Bowl, for example, been skiing sides sometimes even steepest sections. close stance works!
