  • A really common problem with the pole plant is focussing just on the hand that's doing

  • the planting. So people think yes I'll get that hand and give a good solid pole plant

  • but forget what this uphill hand is doing.

  • So this hand is going to go in to the snow but I'm going to let my uphill hand trail

  • behind me and it's going to take my shoulder and make me twist. You've got to keep those

  • hands in front, and as that pole is coming forward, this hand is still ready for the

  • next turn. There, not there. Let me show you what I'm talking about.

  • So on these first few turns I'm reaching with one pole and letting my other hand go behind,

  • but it's also taking my shoulder, remember body position is key, keep both the hands

  • in front and as you pole plant the other hand should still be nicely in front of you.
