Pete Webster – Mountain Adventure Centre backcountry instructor getting some turns in on our rental Karhu skis & Alpina BC boots. Below are a few tips from Pete on how to get some quality turns on light touring (skinny) skis.
” First and foremost its all about controlling the trailing ski to do this you want to weight your inside ski as you go into the turn.
As you are coming through for your first lead change start to pressure your new inside ski earlier than normal. To achieve this your hips need to be further back while still maintaining an upright position, when doing this be careful that you don’t fall into the back seat.
As you can’t rely on the equipment to hold you in there use your core strength to maintain stance. Keep you upper body down the fall line and let your legs do the turning!” Pete Webster APSI level 1 Telemark Instructor
