Top – Powder Skiing Tips

How to ski in powder snow – Tips for skiing powder… and leave uncertainty behind.

#1 Two footed approach – weight on both skis…
Ever had a problem when your outside ski plunges into the snow and runs away – The solution is to ski with a little more even pressure on both skis which will help to create a larger platform to stand on.

#2 Round turns and finishing turns to control speed…
If you try to turn your skis too quickly across the fall line in deep powder… the result will be a face plant. Instead try to make your turn shape ski round like the letter “C” this means at the end of each turn, continue turning further around the arc.

#3 The Rhythm…
Rhythmical turns will help you take the energy from one turn into the next… you’ll be bouncing right out of the snow.

See this Video – “How to ski powder”:

#4 Tight core…
Keeping a tight core will stabilize your upper body and minimize instability and loss of balance when you hit that unexpected bump.

#5 Powder skiing is just like skiing the bumps…
The difference is, you will need to extend your legs through the middle of the turn as you push your skis into the snow. This will compact the snow until the rebound – it pushes back on you. Then you flex your legs just like in the bumps.



#6 Wider stance…
The trend amongst ski instructors these days is a bit wider stance. This may be more stable!

#7 More inclination, less angulation…
In powder is no need to lay hard on the edges like on groomed run. This means that turns in powder can have a little more lean with the whole body and a little less edging with the lower joints. BUT – do not lean to much and be aware for not rotation with your upper body (do not swing your arms!!)

#8 Terrain…
As said before, powder will slow you down. So ignore your instincts! The steeper the terrain, the easier it will be to ski.

BUT SAFTY FIRST and RESPECT your LIMITS

Have fun and enjoy the powder snow
