    Turn shape controls speed, not turn size.

    On step 5 to roll your knee out on the inside ski push down on your baby toe. It will tilt the ski so a person can bring the rear of the ski in like spreading butter with a knife.

    I must say it's really a good vedio for the beginner, that makes me open my sight! I have bought the ski board, and last week, i got 3 pair total free ski carrier straps, but i think i don't need all of them, so if someone also wanna ski, i can send him/her for free. LoL~ Have a fun~ Contact me: [email protected]

    Does the young ski instructor give private lessons ? If so, how can I contact him?

    I took a private lesson at Sunshine AB/CAN and learned the 'staircase' technique: Imagine you're going down a staircase sideways. Keep you your upstairs hand a little higher than your downstairs hand…with that forward – angled lean you're in about the right position and on both edges. Be sure you can see your hands a bit in front of you and you probably won't end up in 'the backseat." That's all I know, and it helps me. Hope it helps you too!

    Also if they can’t ski parallel they shouldn’t be used polls (I know that the people in this video can ski parallel)

    Really good guys, good camera work; your wunderfull voice's, the sound of boots clcking into skis, the sound of snow were enough music, the backing sound track was hellish. The human voice is way more, way more.

    This is really good! Thanks for sharing! I took my first ever ski class last Saturday (02.02.19) with ski instructor. I am intermediate level in snowboarding (I can do black slopes), but first time in skiis. I was able to do parallel turns within 40mins following the steps of this video. My instructor was not so technical as in the video and the my instructor's tips were not as detailed. It is good to have instructor though, at least for security/safety and to have two eyes looking at you for body posture correction (like leaning forward, etc..). I am very impressed by Stomp It Tutorials, really good job guys. Thanks!

    Just wanted to say a sincere thank you for this tutorial. I went from knowing nothing to parallel skiing's in one day by watching this video and going step by step until I mastered each one. The next two weeks in Mammoth and steamboat will be so much more enjoyable because of you.

    I’ve been skiing since I was like 5 and I still can’t fucking do a parallel turn

    I’m 50 and been skiing 8 years and can’t do anything more than steep blue or single black diamond runs. Do you have to take on skiing as a child to do better?

    the yellow ski instructor is obviously used to teach kids only, and it takes them like 4 days to do that turn… too slow damn it

    These are old fashioned techniques that will hinder your progression later on as you become a terminal intermediate. The best way to learn parallel is to ski in parallel from the beginning.

    On a very gentle slope, traverse the fall line and slowly lighten the downhill ski onto its little toe edge while holding the uphill ski firm. By doing so your body will naturally fall over the unweighted ski and the uphill ski will turn without any leg twisting. Slowly add weight to the new uphill ski, lightening the downhill ski as you complete the turn, returning to a traverse. Then reverse the roles. Then try to string the turns together.

    Guess what? Parallel! Wedge be damned.

    Great tutorial, will be practised in Valfrèyus tomorrow.
    The turning skill is a ticket from the beginner slope to a blue pistes. It can be achieved in approx 10 hours. Good luck and enjoy to all!

    I'm getting ski lessons but find it sooo hard to go parallel when turning. The other ski (where there's no pressure) just doesn't want to move. After turning I end up not skiing straight across the slope, but more going downwards which makes me go too fast and lose control sometimes. Any tips? When my teacher does it it seems easy but I don't find it easy at all

    Either this is a lot of Showing or when they try to teach, it is describing the RESULT of doing something they Aren't telling you. Which means, More Showing! Example. When they tell you to flatten the inside ski, the flattening of the inside ski is a RESULT of balancing on the outside arch and keeping your upper body facing and leaning down the hill. This pulls the inside hip up and the ski just slides along next to the outside ski. Teach the body position and weight change and all that other stuff happens on it's own. Teach Just the result, and the body won't be in the right position to make it happen. It's all right in here. https://www.patreon.com/JB91710

    THIS IS the single best ski educational video on this subject I’ve ever seen. I was trying to find a way to show my siblings how to ski like this. I couldn’t teach it. I have no idea how I learned nor had a way to teach it.

    A good way to start to learn faster parallel skiing is to pick up the up hill ski on the turn

    All good but sometimes a few drills will help to get parallel such as tapping the tail of the inside ski or doing fan progressions which may start with tapping the tail of the uphill ski while traversing and then starting earlier and earlier in the turn. This gets em' balanced on the outside ski and lightening the inside ski so they get the sense of being able to move the inside ski around.
