hi this is Harold harp and today we're going to introduce to you how to learn quick short turns with rebound energy what most recreational skiers lack is tip pressure in short turns on steeps ice and in bunks the quick energetic turn uses a slicing action of the ski and typically tail so here's how to practice the right approach we'll start implement first you must have strong edge hold at the end of each arm to achieve strong edge hold you need early ski tipping and hold pressure on the ski start by trying to retract your legs and recipe at the end of turn like I'm demonstrating in this video this is similar to my top and change exercising the essential to you as you hop and get your skis light pull your feet and boots back with strong leg retraction it's amazing how much energy you can release on whiskey with proper timing of that retraction movement after you can hop between arts use the pullback movement to lift the tails of the skis and press the tips down as I'm doing here in the still photo make sure you have a good edge hold and good edge grip pull your feet up off the snow bend your knees and pull the feet back to lower the tips on the slope hold your body forward and keep your feet back to engage the tip of the skis so there you are if you can get those two movements and start pulling back your feet struggling to get short energetic turns you're on your way to ski on all conditions have fun with us and we'll see you again on the slopes next time thanks bye now

    So basically your movements simulate a bump ski move or part of the dolphin tun used to ski bumps, as it gets the tip on snow after the cross over. If you use the ski rebound and keep your hips over your feet with shin on the boot tongue you should be able be in the same position. Good drill to show how to get up and on the shovel of the ski and engage the tips at the start of a turn.

    Harald, thank you! Your easy teaching style and presentation worked for me. A week into skiing and I am so excited about my ability, and how fast I have learned practicing what you teach on your vids. A ski instructor said he was watching me and will put me in the intermediate beginner class if I sign up!  You're awesome.

    Great skiing worked on this with the team this winter. As a matter of fact our season theme was edge hold. We make Quick Carved Turns to ski moguls. This tech also is done when cresting the moguls to get your skis back down on the snow on the backsides of the moguls.

    This video is for advanced skiers only. It requires basic PMTS movements and practice. So don't expect to be successful if you are using steering, leg rotation and extension.
