yen's is super jealous about us forming so much without him today are you struggling with this yes yeah I'm a jealous you're not in charge today I haven't charged under right till my face first [Laughter] hi do you want to learn to carve like that I've got you the guys to teach you or we are so gonna teach you most of him I'm not used to being inside Viki yes cuz I grew up learning to ski all alone so I developed a bunch of common mistakes and I first corrected it in my early twenties when I was asked instructing that's why we're today gonna do some carving with ker hello what's cool about this is that when I have problems with a trick I sometimes ask this guy for advice and he's as passionate about turning as I am about analyzing tricks that's why we've got him here now you get to turn to turn yeah pretend like I'm about to do the play right yeah we just did there sailrite's is going for Swedish meatballs now when starting with anything in the part on the slopes basic position is where all stems from really don't get right it's something you want to have put it down hit with skis you imagine you've got a bit of string tied in your head like under your skin and then someone's pulling up in that so you're gonna go onto your tiptoes almost then I let go of the string and a relax the ankles flex first so the shins are rested against the front of the ski boots the knees can then flex properly to allow the hips to stay over the set to the ski with a slight bend in the waist through our feet we can be looking for like a nice even spread of pressure around all four corners of our feet and our shins should just be as I said before rested against the front of my ski boot there and this is the foundation that we want to work from when going through some of these carvings tips so now that we've established our basic position on the skis we can start to look at which parts of your body are moving to begin steering the skis yeah that's really important because many people just tip in when I ski instructor beginners just tip and that's not where that turn starts now we turn with their legs and other body wow it's a really subtle small movement yeah we're imagining we're bare feet on a wooden floor and we're just rolling onto the big toe side over a downhill ski in this case the left one and on to the pinky toe side over uphill ski in this case the right it's very subtle so we avoid using the knees now as you get better at it then you move much quicker through that little movement from the ankles to really practice this duje times we traverse across the slope using just the ankles this is to make sure that you're not skidding out you can look at the tracks behind you after you've done a turn and see if there to clean cups so we've got the feeling for what it what it's like to carve for the skis slicing cleanly through the snow using Molinari ankles going one directional bit of slope now we want to link them together what's important to say here yes is these are it's very small movements and there's always a tendency to try and do things really quickly but you just got a little bit a little bit more a little bit more and the skis then towards the edge nicely also as we've released the edges to move into the next turn the release and the smoothness of it is as important as the application of ruling on to the edges so really have some patience and let the turn exactly we've had a bit of time practicing using her ankles in isolation and you'll probably find that you need automatically want to come in and join the party to help out yeah definitely yeah because as soon as you twitch the feet let you come with it and it's exactly that you know your ankles go in the continuation is your knees moving in towards the snow almost to kiss it like when you're right in if you were racing motorcyclist they do drag their knees in the ground almost that crazy so the knees go in towards the hill and in this case my left shoulder and all down underneath my left armpit I'm gonna start to contract the muscles so you get a little pinch around about your waist you feel that yeah you see a lot contracting these muscles is gonna pull your upper body further down the hill so that allows us to stay balanced it's still very subtle we're only doing as much as we need to the respond to the forces and for you watching why we want to get more and it's to get more power over the turn when we get faster a steeper slope there's more of Mother Nature yeah to have to deal with she's a she's a feisty girl isn't she so to deal with this feisty girl and her g-forces it's important that we use all these techniques in a fluid motion where you start off using those ankles to get the skis on edge and then that is followed by the knees or tipping in to and then lastly feel a pinching motion that makes your body turn like this so that you put more force on the outside foot give you fast hard carves like this no matter if you're into park riding or free riding make sure to perfect your carving technique and it's gonna open up the mountain to a whole new playground but I got yams in my pocket all right let's keep rocket thank you guys so much for watching hope you learn a lot and thank you so much for joining hey thank you for having me in yeah happening thank you for listening to my dulcet tones and if you enjoyed learning through kur and me in this video let us know in the comments below if you want to see care again because here's one of these go-to guys I have when I think about a trick and I can't really

    4:30 This is a perfect example of what is wrong with the World's ski teaching methods. He is describing what the body looks like when you are doing Other things with your body to allow your skis to turn. Not What to do, just what the end result Looks Like and then tells you to do what it looks like instead of Teaching you how to ski.

    Ski Carving as apposed to balancing on flatter sliding skis is accomplished by keeping your body from the kneecaps up, going down the hill when your skis are going across the hill. As you finish a turn and you are ready to start the next turn, which is as the skis pass under you from one side to the other, you have to stop your upper body's lateral travel while allowing your skis to continue across the will. You think of getting your body to stay in the fall line.

    There are no good demonstrations here of what I'm talking about but if you go to any Reilly video and slow the speed down to 50%, you will easily see what is going on. My comments are on a lot of his videos. A way to visualize what I'm talking about is this. Imagine there is a bungy cord running down the hill from top to bottom and it goes through your chest. As your skis make a turn across the hill, that cord is being pulled to the side. That cord is trying to keep your upper body in the fall line and the farther your skis go to the side, the more your that cord is stretched. When you want to start the next turn, get off the downhill foot and let that cable pull you into the fall line. let it snap you back.

    What happens is, your hips are no longer over your feet and your feet are still going to the side so THAT, is what puts your legs at the angle that rolls your skis over so they make the next turn. You don't steer or think of rolling your ankles over. The travel of your hips down the hill and feet across the hill are what allow the skis to get on the new edges. All you have to do to get this started is, Get Off Your Downhill foot. You are Balanced on your downhill or outside ski through a turn. When you Suddenly pull your weight off that foot, it's like cutting a wedge in a tree. As you, fall down the hill, your feet roll over.

    This is what you think about when you want to make turns.

    "You are standing on the pedals of a bicycle with your hands on the handle bars. You point the front tire down the hill and pedal by removing your weight from one foot and then the other."

    This is what you think about when you want to Carve turns finishing with a Left turn on your Right foot.

    "Plant your right pole down the hill, get off your Right foot, lift your Right "Cheek", and set it on the Edge of the Right Barstool." By doing that, you are getting your upper body Back into the fall line so your legs angulate quickly and the ski get hard on the edge.

    Keep It Simple Stupid!

    it would help so much more if you guys wore some type of spandex / Freddy Mercury outfits.. so that we can exactly see the angulations of the legs and upper body (instead of those big gore-tex bags you are wearing)! Just for teaching purposes 🙂

    I learned to ski with a help of this and other videos on youtube, on 3rd day I was riding on blue trails, doing proper parallel turns.
    Also I noticed that many people who are skiing for years can't explain what exactly they're doing.
    This video is great!
