Emergency Stop

The Emergency or ‘Ice Hockey’ stop is a very good way to make a quick or emergency stop. It makes use of ‘down un-weighting’ to turn the skis, which is also a useful technique to employ to turn your skis in powder. The sudden down unweighting movement lightens the weight on your skis and makes it easy to initiate a quick turn. This is often how skiers stop at the end of a run.
