CHALLENGE

Dropping your inside shoulder

Many advanced skiers incorrectly tip into the turn by initiating turns from the top down rather than the bottom up. This tends to cause excessive rotation of your upper body. Your skis are then slow to react and you’ll feel like you have sluggish, even clumsy feet. You can make decent long turns this way, but you’ll lack quickness in tight spots.
