Pole Planting

Ski with light ski-poles that have a comfortable finger grip and hold the grips firmly as you plant them. Check with a ski shop that your poles are the correct length. For bumps skiing, ski with slightly shorter poles. Don’t jab your ski-pole, but rather touch it gently in the snow and use it as a timing maneuver. For the up-unweighted turn, plant your ski-pole as you lower your hips.
