  • Hi, I’m Tobin with Section 8 Snowsport Institute. We are here on the Hintertux Glacier in Austria

  • and today I’m going to give you a quick tip on how to improve your short radius turns.

  • So one of the key skills in short turns is having the ability to turn with the lower

  • body. By that I mean turning with the legs. Keeping

  • your hips stable and turning the leg in the hip socket.

  • A great drill to work on turning with the legs is called javelin turns. I’ll show

  • you a quick demonstrations here on how to do it.

  • The trick with a javelin turn is to pick up your inside ski and then steer the outside ski,the

  • ski that is still on the snow, underneath the ski that youve lifted up.

  • One thing I notice is a lot of people will often try to lift this ski up and twist it

  • over their outside ski, so rather than doing that, make sure you are steering your outside

  • ski underneath the one that youve lifted up.
