Advanced Lessons Lesson #5.3 – Dynamic Turns
Now that the turns feeling a lot more dynamic, that nice, smooth edge to the end and that good confidence start letting your body fall down the slope you’re going to find that the speed will start increasing. And think of it exactly the same as a bike, the faster that bike is going to be going around the corner the more lean and angle they’re going to have going around the corner.
20 miles an hour same bike at five it’s going to be more upright and you’ll start to feel that with the legs. But don’t let the shoulders fall onto your side, keep that slightly more upright.
You can see here that I’m not going particularly fast, but my legs are leaning over more than my upper body.
As I increase the speed the legs lean over further but the upper body remains more upright, if you compare the two you can clearly see the difference.
Start to change the rhythm of your turns and really play with the terrain. Look ahead, anticipate what’s coming, and adjust your turns to see. Just have fun with it.
Now that you’ve got the skills to ski happily around the mountain on all peace, just keep practicing them. Remember if you find something is not working, don’t look for a complicated reason. Go back a step, get the basics right, and I’m sure you’ll come back stronger. Next time we’re going to be looking at specific skills that’s really going to take you on another step and we’ll start exploring much more of the mountain. We’ll see you next time.
