  • In short turns it's important to keep the upper body calm and facing down the hill.

  • Watch how my feet are turning but my body remains calm. The arms are in front and I'm

  • looking down the hill. A great exercise to help you achieve that, is take your hands

  • out of your straps, hold your poles about halfway down and put the handles together,

  • making a nice arrow.

  • Now put some smooth turns in, keeping that arrow facing directly down the hill.

  • Start on a nice easy slope, but it's going to be a really good guide for you to keep those

  • arms in front, and keep that chest facing down the hill.

  • This might feel strange to start with, but give it time and it will become easier.

  • It's a really good way to train the upper body to remain calm. I now have the poles back

  • but the same rules apply. My body is calm, my skis are turning beneath me with a good,

  • constant, rhythm.

In short turns it's important to keep the upper body calm and facing down the hill.
