Lesson Lexicon: Angulation

In skiing, there are two ways to put your skis on their edges: inclination and angulation. Angulation happens when you tip different body parts in different directions and different amounts to create complementing angles. In addition to the lateral movement required for full-body tipping or banking, angulation involves fore/aft and vertical movements achieved through flexing and extending your joints, especially your ankles, knees and hips.
