CHALLENGE: Can't stay balanced on your skis

Many factors make your skis slow down or speed up unexpectedly: a change in slope pitch, the texture of the snow, the reaction of the skis coming out of a turn, counterproductive body movements. Keeping your eyes (and mind) out in front of your skis to anticipate what's ahead may not be enough. Missing a turn entry can cause you to fall behind your skis. So can a sudden, late edge engagement, which can cause your skis to jet ahead.

SOLUTION: Move away from the hill to start your turns
