In terms of active steering movements on our skis. Broadly speaking the lower half of body is the key area. From the hips down to the feet, these are our steering components. The upper body, from the waist to the head, broadly speaking, these are our balance components. In order to produce a given type of turn we blend our movements together. The lower body producing active steering, and the upper body in sync subtly balancing out our steering movements. So that we can stay on that sweet spot over our planks, and continue steering the skis in the way we want.

With a significant pause in the sport we love, it is not just ‘on-tap’ like so many things today. The summer is an opportunity to keep ourselves in shape and prepared for next winter. So that we can enjoy every moment of the winter to its fullest. So lets discuss how to prepare for skiing and the winter ahead while we have time off.
