“This simple exercise will set you up with a whole slew of skills required for nice smooth French Fries (parallel) turns.
Start in the mountain stance with your skis across the fall line. Most of your weight will be on your downhill ski while your eyeballs and the jacket zipper are pointed down the hill. Slowly get TALL and gently roll your ankles a little downhill. Your edges will release and you’ll start to slowly slip into the go line. To stop slipping slowly, you’ll need to get SMALL and tip your shins uphill to get your edges to grab the snow.”
