Step 5The Perfect Slope

Now you are in control.  Time to find your flow.

Traversing – Start by traveling perpendicular to the slope using the sides of the trail to assist you in making your turns.

Turning – Flatten the downhill ski and steer the uphill ski to start your turn. Then steer both feet until you are traversing in the other direction across the hill.

Speed Control – The further you turn up the hill during a traverse the slower you will go. It’s okay to ski slow as your skills start to grow! Always be in control and feel confident before starting your next turn.
