ya thats pretty much it... keep forward pressure on the tongues of your boot and dig your edges into the ground
Oh Here we go. Not really the site to ask how to learn to ski...
Does anybody have a video of an alley-oop carve?
just keep a lot of pressure on the front and let your skis do the work dont force it cus then it will just be uncomforatable and much harder. your skis have edges for a reason so use them. dont be afraid that you are going to fall or anything.. just have fun man!
you know your edging when you dont fall on blue ice while going fast
No hate, but looking at the basic skiing technique of park rats, many of them surely could use a basic course. You see way too many people nowadays that can do a cork or pretzel but are unable to carve. :D
so true. i see so many people who spend all day in the park and once they are out on the other trails they dont know what to do
Then put your own words in your mouth. Be specific, your mother is purchasing an ounce of what from your grandmother? I hope it's an ounce of cyanide to poison your breakfast tomorrow you feisty little tart.-El.Gato
Carving is using the sidecut of the ski (the hourglass shape) to make a turn as apposed to pivoting the skis like windscreen wipers. You do it by rolling onto your edges with most of your weight on the outside ski this will then flex your ski. Can be great for helping your spins while going up to the lip of the jump
