Try Traversing

“Start in the mountain stance on an easy Green slope. Point your tips across the slope and a little bit downhill. Press your uphill pinkie toe into the snow as you move forward. This will keep that uphill, inside edge on the snow. If you do it right, you can look back and see two parallel sets of French Fries marked on the slope. Do it on both sides.

You should keep your body turned just a little bit downhill. Look in the direction you are skiing, but if you peek down at your skis as you traverse, you’ll see the uphill ski is just a little bit forward. That means you’re doing it right!”
