Once you’ve explored gliding in a wedge, you’re ready to learn how to make basic turns. You’ll learn how to control your speed and direction by the shape of your turn.
Tips: While practicing the wedge turns, steer using your legs and feet, not your upper body. Keep skis relatively flat and maintain the size and shape of the wedge. Keep an athletic stance with weight centered over your feet: Leaning back is the most common mistake skiers make.
