Agressive carving

    Third level. Agressive carving. Introduction.

    You have mastered the carve turn and can do it confidently and leave two sharp parallel track on the slope. However, things do not always succeed. That slope is very icy and skis do not cling or the slope is too big or something else, and it all goes wrong. And skiers, who ride better than you, it is very often on the slope. Why? Because you and I have learned and mastered only basics of the carve turn. Now it's time to dive into the world of the expert carvers.

    Third level. How to identify the problem area and how to work on it.

    At this stage, it is already impossible to make a sequence of exercises that will suit everyone. We need to work individually, accurately determining the direction of the work. That is, a clear understanding of what and how to correct and improve. Let's define the main points.

    Third level. How to make a training plan

    All skiers anyway while paying technology development skating. To a greater or lesser degree, but pay. And everyone wants to be paid to training and boring exercise less time, so that more remained to just ride for pleasure. Let's find a solution how to spend less time on exercise and to get the maximum effect.

    Third level. Variety of technical exercises and what is progressions.

    Difficulties and interesting activities in improving skiing techniques is that you have to do exercises that can not be obtained from first try. And no other way could be. If you do easy exercises there will be no progress. But what if the exercise is too hard to do. We can use progressions in that case. What is progression? Let's find out.

    Third level. Begining to work on the slope.

    Once we have sorted out all the introductory we can move on to practice. As promised let's make some progression, or a sequence of exercises that may be suitable for most skiers are in the learning stage of carving in its base amount and hwo want to progress further.

    Third level. Development of the forward displacement. Exercise "crossbar".

    To begin let's feel this longitudinal displacement or forward displacement deeply and determine it for oursrlves approximate boundaries of fixing the sensations in the legs and around the body. Because it is not only legs control the skiing.

    Third level. Development of the forward displacement. Exercise "Sunny"

    This exercise looks easy but it is able to infuriate even the most patient skiers. For its implementation needs a gentle and clean slope. It is possible to do this exercise on other slopes but in the begining we nee a gentle one.

    Third level. Development of the layback. A bit of theory.

    If we talk about modern techniques of skiing, the layback is the main part of the alpine skiing and basic element of the whole technique. More precisely, it is the main purpose of the intermediate alpine skier. It is not clear, but let's sort it out because it is an important question.

    Third level. Development of the layback. Learning to control the inner leg - "Scraper" on the inner leg.

    The main practical problems prevent displacement inside the turn is inner leg. More precisely, not the ability to manage it and feel the download. There are a lot of reasons for this phenomenon and, unfortunately, avoiding them was very difficult at the early stages of learning. It was easier to ignore them at the moment and deal with them now. Let's start and do the first exercise.

    Third level. Development of the layback. Learning to control the inner leg - Sliding turn on the inner leg.

    No need to be a conductor of the universal consciousness on the guilty earth to remember the first part of our tutorial, and a sequence of exercises after walking exercise "scraper" to guess what will happen now. Yes, we continue to slide the turn on the inner leg. Our task is to teach inner leg work in the turn as well as the outside.
