    Hey! Thank you for this useful video. By the way, I hear lots of people keep on talking about Avalorexon Training Program (do a search on google), but I'm not sure if it is really good. Have you considered this ski training called Avalorexon Training Program? I've heard several amazing things about it.

    Actually if you look at the girl in the video "How to master skate skiing in one day", that is exactly what happens to me (!), and also in the left foot.

    Thanks for the tip. I tried to do as you suggested previously, and it seemed to work better, but it felt uncomfortable. And I tried to avoid it since I read that it was import to land in a flat ski.

    If your left ski slides you are not edging the ski enough. It could be related to your feet….is that foot "flat"? Sometimes people have found that with properly fitted footbeds that this solves their problem. Otherwise try more edging of the left ski by rolling your ankle inward before you push off. Hope this helps.

    I keep sliding my left ski sideways. I wonder why that is. should skiers' feet be slightly curved outwards so that the skis are slightly curves and not fully flat against the ground?

    Within CANSI we teach this as a the first skating technique mainly since it promotes good balance-the key to all skating. Sometimes I find that if a student learns offset or V1 first they get that timing grooved in and can't change it so they offset everywhere. Having said that you can certainly learn the others as well since they are useful in different sections of the trail.

    Cheers,Keith

    All of your videos are extremely helpful, thank you for posting them. I had a question about 1 skate: Should a beginner spend time learning this technique or would they be better off mastering v2 alternate and v1 first? Thanks.
