The Basic Skills of Skiing
You have to learn three things in order to ski – stand up, turn and stop.
To stand on the skis you need to create what is known as the ‘snowplow’, by standing with your feet shoulder-width and finger-pointing your toes into the (forming a V shape). Then, slightly bend your knees to create a more stable position, arms spread wide to give yourself more balanced, and leaning slightly forward – as opposed to lean slightly backward. Moving forward / down does not matter as your skis will automatically do the slightest slope.
