CHALLENGE

Stuck in one turn shape

Everyone has favorite pitches and snow conditions, but some experts have favorite turn shapes that they use to excess. It may feel wonderful, but if you only make long arcing turns or short slalom-type turns, you'll be a one-trick pony. Real experts do it all: They blend all types of turns and turn shapes depending on terrain and snow quality. The key to versatility is to understand the transitions between different types of turns.

SOLUTION

Blend edging and steering to match the situation
