Where’s your focus in all these? In your boots and on your working ski.
When linking turns, transfer your focus back and forth to the working ski. As you transfer to the new working ski at the start of a new turn, shift your focus to the new big toe edge and new working boot. It all happens at the same time.
STEP 11: LEARN TO PARALLEL FROM A PRO
To perfect parallel turns, take lessons from a pro. Some ski schools use a direct-to-parallel method of instruction that bypasses the snowplow or wedge turn. Traditional instruction builds parallel turns from wedge turns.
In North America, look for ski instructors certified through the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) or the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance (CSIA).
