Let's look at where we are at in the front to back of our weight is on our skis.
In position 1(see above)
lean back so you are over you heal and front part of foot is lifted.
Lean forward so heal is lifted and you are over your toes.
Now come back a little so you are on the ball of your foot, no weight on the heal and toes of your foot.
This is the idea place from where you should be skiing from.
Let's take this a step farther
Repeat drill above but do it in position 1-5. See how being lower in your stance affects where you are at front to back.
Let's take this idea to moving on our skis.
- Double poll or find a small hill that allows us to glide along playing with the drill above. See how this affects the feel of your skis.
- While skating or diagonal stride where are you landing on your new ski?
- While loading the old ski to transfer weight to the new ski, where is your weight at?
