Build a turn with inside ski tipping movements.

When asked what I focus on in a series of turns or a ski run, this is how I describe my approach. It usually surprises people.

The inside half of the body creates efficient movements and angles, not the drive for pressure on the outside leg and knee. 

Focus on the inisde half of the body that creates the next turn.


                                              Starting out I split or divide my body in half. Study these photos. Since I know that the initiation of a turn involves a release of the old outside ski of the last turn; I focus on that half of the body which will be on the inside of the next arc. I always think in the future not in the moment whcih always triggers my next turn. 

Here the inisde foot tipping movement is the ficus. 

When you begin to realize you can simplyfy your thoughts and movements by focusing on only the half of the body that creates the next result; you can stay ahead of the disruptions a slope can deliver.

Tireless man.True perpetum mobile!In PMTS, nothing is hidden and teachers know, how to transfer knowledge.Beside that, they keep reminding you, through social media.
How much more, does a skier need?
