Tutorial on alpine skiing. Second level. Carving basics - Introduction.

Before you begin to engage in the development of carving for yourself you should clearly understand the following points:

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Second level. Carving basics.

So, you have mastered the previous course and can confidently ride a parallel ski hills without losing any integrity and not receiving moral and psychological overload. Of course, sometimes on very steep slopes you anxious, but you already know what to do and how about to go down. Now it's time to move on and develop the next increment of the ski technique.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Second level. Mastering the carve arc turn.

The first thing we need to learn is the foundation of carving - carve arc. This is the element on which the whole modern technology is based and which is nessesary for correct application and use of modern skiing. I have to say that everything we will deal with at this stage will be different from what you already know only that ski would move without cross slipping. Everything else will be same.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Second level. Learn how to unload a leading skiing at the end of the turn.

With the hope that you have mastered one curved arc and your traces is straight and parallel tracks of the same radius, we can continue to move to the tops of technical skiing.

What to do: to the previous exercise, you add folding outside leg to the end of the movement of the arc.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Second level. Learning the skill to enter the turn.

After you mastered the exercise in elementary carved arcs you can move to the binding of these carve turns in the path and start to go down the slope, not across. But in order to get it simply and effectively, it is a difficult one to master movement - forward move of the inner legs on turn entry. Let's work out the issue.

We have mastered the kind of arc and even bend legs at the end of the turn and get flat skis after the turn. Now let's get ready to bind turns. It is not difficult.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Second level. Simple carve turns.

We now turn to the immediate outbreak of turns and construct a sequence of elementary movements in the simplest of their implementation. Or, we need to try to make a bunch of turns at conducting skis to get not one arc across the slope, to have a few arcs along the slope interconnected.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Second level. Learning of skill of ligaments the turns.

So we learned how to do basic bunch of carving turns. Let's learn how to make it more dynamic and examine how we can do it on steeper slopes.

Now we need to gather all the skills that we have obtained in previous exercises in one single move. Carve turn, displacement of the inner leg forward, bending the supporting leg at the end of the turn and we need to learn how to unbend outer leg at the entrance to the new turn. More precisely, do notjust straighten it, we should move body forward and into the turn so that the leg had no choice but to do as an unbent.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Second level. Conclusion.

Now, when we gathered carving turn you need to understand what to do next to improve and develop your skiing technique. Let's answer on this question: what to do next?

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.3. Semi carving turn or drift. Introduction or why 1.3?

At the end of the first level it is time to move on to the next level of skiing - carving. It have it own technique and we have some exercises that works and allows you to master this technique. However, practices showed that not all skiers are ready to learn carving technique.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.3. Semi carving turn. First exercise "bulldozer".

First, let's master a very important movement and obtain a most important skill in alpine skiing - learn how to dose the load on skis. For this there are not easy one, but a very effective exercise, "Bulldozer".

For this exercise, we need a medium stepness slope without fresh snow. It is also desirable that it will be hard enough, but not icy. It is important.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.3. Semi carving turn. Scond exercise "Herringbone".

Next we need to learn how put skis on the edge while riding by moving it from flat position. Many skiers mistakenly think that to edge skis they should simply put it to one side. This is not true. It must also be load correctly. And that we are going to learn.

We have one exercise "herringbone". It called "herringbone" because when it done you can see what tracks is similar to herringbone branches. Youcan do this exercise on any slope, what's doesn't matter. But it is better if it is not too steep and not too gentle. Anyway, it would be better if the slope is prepared.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.3. Semi carving turn. "Step into the turn".

Now let's put all obtained in the previous exercises skills together and obtain new complex skill that we need. Not easy to do, but very important progression.

Note that in classical training schools there is an exercise "turn from the stop." It is very similar in appearance to what we are going to do, but in fact nothing in these movements is alike.

For this exercise, you need an average steepness slope without hillocks.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.3. Semi carving turn. Body align.

Now we are going to do an exercise that is not directly related to the movement which we trying to master, but very useful. From practice sessions on a slope with real people we know, what the previous exercise inevitably leads to the same mistake, to the reversal of a body into the turn. This mistake is unpleasant and disgusting, pulls a lot of unpleasant moments, and we should get rid of it immediately as soon as it appears. If such a rotation of the body doesn't appear, the exercise is still worth doing. It can't do much harm as other exercises and in any case will be useful.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.3. Semi carving turn. Semi turn - Put all together and go.

Well, we come to the final part of this tutorial section, and now we have to put all that we have learned together and come to what we talked about, and that showed in the first chapter of this part. Now let's not waste time on repetitive description of semi carving turn, but simply note the specific technical points which facilitate your understanding of this technical element.

Now we need to master how to move by semi turn. To do this, select the level slope with medium steepness. There is no needs to choose gentle slopes, because we will need some dynamics.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.1 - Expert sliding turn. Introduction.

In the previous part of the tutorial, we learned basics of how to make simple sliding turns. Now you can move on and learn some more elements of technic, which accurately be useful to you in alpine skiing.

Many skiers at this stage believe that further development is not necessary, because it is already doing well: "Well, we're able to go down any slope ... Why do we need to do more exercises, we skiing don't worser than others" . This is quite a logical question.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.1 - Expert sliding turn. Development of skill of forward displacement of internal foot in the beginning of a turn.

Well, let's start. The first thing we should learn is how to offset the inner foot forward in the beginning of a turn. It is very difficult and very important skill witch is necessary to perform small-radius turns. Let's see how itto learn it.

We will not go into the theoretical aspects of this motion because in this section we do practice.

Let us turn to practice and analyze the exercise which will help us to master the displacement of internal legs. Exercise called "scissors."

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.1 - Expert sliding turn. Development of skill of unloading backs and displacement of the body forward.

In last part, we work out the displacement of internal foot forward in the beginning of a turn. Now let's work out the development of useful skills of transfering body forward and unloading the backs of skis.

Why we need this? As we know from theoretical part that is necessary for turning the skis by unloading backs and for speed control. Let's learn how to do it in practice.

To do this, we need an slope with medium steepness and any width. We won't do any turns, we will just slide down doing some manipulation with skis.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.1 - Expert sliding turn. Prick of the poles in the beginning of a turn.

In last exercise, we felt some pleasant moment in which after ski block, on the exit of a turn, throws us to a new turn. Now we need to learn how to use this momentum and use it properly. Let's master a new movement and learn how to send the body into a new turn.

There is nothing difficult. We need to learn how to do feet movement, but not as part of the exercise, in skiing. And not just in skiing, at the moment of inertial effect our body was ready to enter into a new turn in correct position.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.1 - Expert sliding turn. Exercise "Shaolin".

Well, we have learned how to shift the body forward and expand it into a new tur in the ski block position at the end of the ski turn. Let's now add another useful move.

Now learn how to shift the body into the turn to create angle between skis and slope. In this position skis better cling to the slope, and it allows us to more confidently and aggressively control the speed and direction of our movement.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.1 - Expert sliding turn. Body rotation.

In theory, we already know that in order to get a more efficient turn of small radius we should transfer body weight to noses, releas backs and turn skis by the body rotation. All clear on the theoretical level, but in practice it doesn't always done for the first time. Let's ease the practical development of this movement and make simple and useful exercise.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.1 - Expert sliding turn. Work of hands in sliding turn.

After mastering the bodyrotation turn we can put everything together and get a basic picture of the expert sliding turn. Let's do that.

Again, choose the slope where you can safely and confidently make sliding turns of medium radius. And we begin to move. Now our task is to gather all together but keep body rotation into the turn with poles in the standard position.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. Level 1.1 - Final position.

Then we mastered the basic framework of this expert exercise and get some riding figure from our last exercise of this course, we have to understand what to do and where to go next. Let's summarize and understand the perspectives of the development of your skiing technique.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. First level - From the ground to the first turn. Instruction for skiers with pictures and videos.

So we bought the entire inventory, learned the theory of skiing and it's time to move on to the mastery of all the techniques, which we know. But, as always let's start from a few basic points of mastering skiing techniques. Typically, a lot of errors in skiing newcomers make because of a misunderstanding of the process of learning.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. First level - On what skis you should star and do you need poles and helmet.

The question of choosing skis is quite complicated and requires special attention. Details we wrote about this in the section of inventory on our site. If you wish to look into the issue in a serious way can do it immediately, or use the six-step strategy of choice of skis. Now we are skating and only note key moments.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. First level - Choosing a place for training.

It is very important to choose the right place for training. Basically, you can learn to ride on any slope in any conditions, the only question is the effectiveness of employment and it's progress. Well-chosen slope will help you to progress. How to select it, and that is important? It's not difficult, let's see.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. First level - What is the wedge, and why we need it?

You bought whole inventory and come on slope. All the exercises we will consider from the moment of lifting to the top of the slope. Let's go.

What is the wedge? This is a complex position. Although many sources in the ski areas are considered only wedge position at which the noses of skis together and backs divorced. But this is not quite true. Wedge pose consist of many parameters. Let's try to define them and articulate.

Look at the pictures and let's try to list and analyze all that we can see on it:

Tutorial on alpine skiing. First level - First movements in the wedge.

The main task at this stage is to learn how to go down the hill using wedge, and to feel and understand what and how our actions affect on the interaction with the ski slope and that it leads to. But let's not deal with the theory and physics, and move on to practical training.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. First level - Speed control when moving in the wedge.

Now let's add to our sliding down in a wedge some dynamics and, at the same time, work on speed and skill of management control of skis. We don't want to use wedge whole life, right? Somehow it is not very fashionable and beautiful.

Next, we develop the skills of skiing will help of one good exercise "lamps". We need the same slope as the one on which we started, but this time it will be better if the slope will be a little longer. All the same, we will start to drive, not just scrape.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. First level - First turns and exercise "Compass."

Now we need to learn how to turn. Don't ride only straight lines. Let's do some simple exercises that will help us to learn some moves and get some sense of that will help us to master the technique of turns. That feeling is very important in alpine skiing. Never seek to learn skiing through an understanding of what you should do in theory. Always gpay attention to the feel of the action.

Tutorial on alpine skiing. First level - First turns and exercise "mill".

When you have mastered the exercise "compass" and learn how to draw smooth circle and, more importantly, experience feeling of transfering body weight on one leg and on the other, you can move to the next exercise, "windmill".
