hi I'm Marianne from the Jackson ski touring foundation I'm here with skiing in Hampshire with the cross-country ski tip of the day today we're going to talk about enjoying the down hills you may find yourself sometime coming along the edge of the hill and wondering the best way of dealing with it well there's two possibilities one way is to stay in the tracks and enjoy the fast ride down the other way may be to take it a little more carefully a little cautiously using a wedge we're going to demonstrate both for you today in both cases you want to just make sure that you keep your weight a little bit more forward don't stand up too straight a little forward keep your knees bent alright and Emily will demonstrate now if you prefer to take the hill a little bit more slowly a little more carefully you don't have to stay in the tracks you can come out of the tracks and use a wedge or a snow plows to control your speed take it as slowly or as quickly as you like Emily will now demonstrate

    The hill isn't nearly steep and long enough for me to have issues.  Usually the problem is you are hitting 15 to 20MPH att the bottom of the hill, and there is a sharp turn, and you can't keep in the track as you lean to make the turn, and slide off the trail heading straight, or if you lean to much you might wind up on your side when your skis leave the track.  If there is no skating track, and you can snowplow hard down the hill, you possibly destroy the classic track.

    This video currently has 0 likes and 3 dislikes. I personally thought it was professionally done and reasonably informative for its short duration. Can someone please share what they dislike about it? I am just starting out and don't want to learn incorrect techniques. Thanks!
