Getting Up

Everybody falls and everybody needs to get up! Its essential to learn how to get up easily and safely. Place your skis below you so they are perpendicular to the fall-line. Sit as far forward as possible and when you roll up, continually lean your chest forward. Use your poles to help pull and push yourself up by pulling with one hand on the top of the grip and pushing with the other hand on the skipole shaft near the basket.
This Video Tutorial is from the “SkiTips 1” App for iPhones and iPads and can be found in the “Learn to Ski” eBook, both available on the Apple AppStore. The App comes in four languages – English, French, German and Italian.
