    Started out well, until it got steep and 2:09 and then the guy is just bunny hopping into turns, which is pretty much the exact opposite of carving.

    You turn on the inside edge of your downhill ski. Don’t over complicate it. Inside edge, downhill ski.

    my description of carving: So you know how you use your skis to gain momentum by pushing off of them side to side. do that but mix it with your turning.

    NO you do not initiate the turn by putting weight on your toeside edge on the outside leg. You start the turn by using the little toe – side edge from the inside leg in relation to which way your turning then you let the outside leg naturally follow

    I like that they added the section 2:12–2:16 although it is not "carving" it is still an essential skiing technique when the terrain gets more technical and pure carving generates too much speed.

    For everyone wondering about that trick at 0:06, Stomp It Tutorials just made a video called 5 tricks you can do anywhere, they call it a worm turn, although I'm sure there is other names. They talk about it about 3 minutes into the video. Keep skiing!

    Unfortunately, the ski video recommends what's called an "up move" to transition from one turn to the next. You're gonna be quite limited in where you can apply that technique. It's fine on gentle, intermediate terrain on good snow. But when it gets steeper or icier, there's gonna be problems. The technique described here is neither fast enough nor nimble enough to ski the terrain the way you would like to. Instead of standing up at the end of the turn, flex to release. For more, search youtube for "retraction turns."

    beginners tip #1: find some soft, spring corn snow to practice on. The way most resorts groom their terrain, it's boring for experts and way too hard for beginners.

    Everything from 2:09 onward (steep terrain) has nothing to do with carving… No idea what you call it in english, but its not carved.

    The most important tool a ski instructor can have is the ability to take what they are doing, come up with a way to explain it in a way that a student can understand and feel. Still haven't heard it.

    I can ski but can't carve. Everytime I try to carve and roll on my knees and ankles I fall. What should I do?

    "The more force you put through the cuff of your boot the tighter your turn will be" – no, that's called boot crushing and it causes the outside ski to down-stem through the end of the turn.

    Great stuff! Thanks for sharing. I would add one more important insight – to not rotate nor counter-rotate upper body.
    For medium to long turns upper body should always follow the skis. When it comes to short turns upper body stays still.
    I can not wait to test my new gs cheater skis 🙂
