using your poll get you round bends more effectively it helps you keep your balance when you're taking pressure off the ski and turning it remember the skis always turn around the pole so the pole has to be placed on the inside of the curve in the first exercise position yourself at a place with plenty of visibility beside the piste and poke your pole into the snow around 15 to 20 centimeters behind the tip of the ski with parallel turning and carving use the so called forward and upward movement to take the weight off the ski and make it easier to turn and change edges in the next step you'll learn how to time the use of the pole with the forward and upward movement for this stand at an angle to the slope again during the forward and upward movement move your pole forward and place it in the snow at the highest point and during the movement downwards you bring the pole back behind you again now you can practice the first two exercises while moving along it's an angle to the slope first only use the pole and then combine it with the movement upwards now I can try to integrate the use of a pole into the parallel term during the forward and upward movement bring the pole forwards that is at exactly the same time as you change edges place the pole into the snow between the tip of your ski and the binding and during the movement downwards you move the pole to the back again let's repeat that once again move the pole forwards change edges and use the pole at the same time then during the downward movement move the pole back the Burg FEX ski Academy wishes you lots of fun and success with your training in skiing

    Hahaha. Honestly, ski poles are a marketing scheme. This video is a prime example of how useless they are. They're completely unnecessary and hinder a majority of skiers. Don't be a sucker.

    So the answers are, lead with the inside hand and arm, face you lifted edges at the end of the arc, "That is the upper body counter", an tap the pole below the skis toward the falline. That's the way the best skiers in the world do it.

    First of all if you move the arm and pole swing forward to the tip of the ski your upper body turns square to the skis. Which is rotation. And with this you can't hold an edge on steeper terrain or in bumps. The up movement is really destructive because it stops the transition to the next turn. Lots of extra movements for no benefit to becoming an expert.

    No. Actually it is correct. Pole plants vary by technique of course..but what is being shown here is the basic fundamentals of carving turns. Skiing at high speed or in powder is NOT what is being taught here.

    Totally incorrect for efficient skiing. Forward and upward pole swings create rotation and loss of control of the outside ski at speed or in powder.
