CHALLENGE: Weight too far inside

For newcomers, skiing can seem counterintuitive. If you want to turn left, it might seem natural to lean to your left. This works at first-until you lose your edge and tip over to the inside. Worse, it leads to the hard-to-break habit of standing on your inside ski. To turn left properly, you need to apply pressure to the inside edge of your outside ski, which is about to become your new downhill ski.

SOLUTION: Transfer weight with more authority.
