CHALLENGE: Too little pressure on the outside ski

Your skis were just sharpened, you're edging, but your outside ski keeps skidding and drifting away from you. Frustrating. Truth is, sharp skis, a high edge angle and even a well-positioned torso don't guarantee grip. It's a combination of edge and pressure. Speed can help you here by throwing more pressure against the edge. Be stronger with your outside leg.

SOLUTION: Move inside and stand against your outside ski.
