Skiing is an ever changing canvass. One day there’s fluffy powder, another hard Snow, yet another and comes a new set of conditions.
Conditions have a huge impact on our skiing whether it can be measured in personal satisfaction, falls, tiredness or mental tension.
To mitigate these negative feelings, it helps going back to skiing basics and the technical, or “nuts and bold” aspects of the sport. Beside just the right amount of speed that help us turn more effectively, what’s the most important one?
Upper body anticipation or “Pelvic Thrust”, as I call it. It’s a counter-intuitive move and needs the skier’s full attention, which is why I take the time to remind all of us, skiers!
