Big Mountain Men: Jack, Mateo, Lennon, Sam Day 6

Great day for skiing and racing with great friends. So glad to get to ski with these young men.

We’re still playing with how we balance along the length of our skis. Playing with the fact that our skis go faster if we pressure the tails of our skis but we loose a certain amount of control. When we pressure the front of our skis we get more control. The trick is to find the balance right over the sweet spot right in the middle of the length of our skis. We get there by moving our feet forward or backwards underneath our bodies with our ankles and legs.
