How to Downhill Ski

Video transcription

Hi, I am Rob Browning, and we are here at The Canyons Ski Resort in Park City, Utah. We are here today to show you how to downhill ski. When downhill skiing, there is a couple of items that you are going to need. Those are ski boots, ski poles, and skis, along with appropriate winter dress and apparel. You want to stay warm while you are up on the slopes. When downhill skiing, you want to maintain good balance and stay under control. One of the keys to helping you do this is the Stem Christie Maneuver, which will be demonstrated. So, the Stem Christie is: as you are initiating a turn you plant your pole, begin to turn around your pole, lift your uphill ski leg, and move it over next to your downhill ski leg.
