Hi my name is Steve Nichipor. I'm a professional mountain guide with Bretton Woods Ski Resort and I'm going to show you how to ski like an expert. Skiing like an expert can take years of practice but one of the great things about skiing is that it's fun at any ability level. When working on your skiing technique, it's usually better to practice on easier terrain. Pushing yourself on more challenging slopes is great but you will have a hard time learning new movement patterns if you are challenged. Expert skiing is characterized by relaxed centered stance, appropriate for the terrain, fluid parallel edge changes and an ability to vary turn shape fluidly as the terrain changes or when you want to ski faster or slower. Your upper body should remain facing down the fall line with your center of mass moving across your skis. Sharper turns should be made by increasing the edge angle of your skis allowing them to carve rather than skid. A great way to test your ability to make expert turns is in a NASTAR or recreational racing course. Dynamic carved turns will be faster than skidded ones so as your ability improves, you will see your times get faster.
