With your skis on your feet, in your garden or house (if there's room) or in the park on grass, astroturf, sand or snow.


Today we explore how to get up and down those tricky hills


Let the ski roll on to one edge by rolling your knee

to the inside of your ski.

Use for good grip uphill and extra control downhill.






An edged ski bites into the surface to give more grip and control when using across the gradient of a slope to go up or downhill.













The point of the V should be downhill.












Use just enough edge control. Start with 10-20 degrees.












Squeeze knees closer together and forward. V point downhill.








Easy? Really?

Go steeper.


Good luck, keep practicing, get quicker, go lower, small steps climb big mountains.
