Lessons we learned from Frank

We took ski lessons from Frank C. while at Copper. Here’s a few lessons we learned from him as he tried to help us ski with “Elegant Power” down the steeps. This is mostly so that I can remember next year when we come back to ski again, but if anyone else benefits, yay! šŸ™‚

  1. Keep your body facing down the fall line
  2. Hold your hands forward in the same position as you would holding a bike handlebar
  3. Use your hands to steer, pointing where you want to go
  4. Roll your ankles to turn carving skis
  5. Use flexion extension to speed your feet movement
  6. As you complete the S of your turn, roll your feet to begin the next turn to keep a steady flow
  7. Use the mountain, not your muscles
