Punching

To help bring your skis out of the snow when skiing in heavy or wet snow and breakable crust or in deep snow on a shallow pitch, you can punch your arms up in the direction of the turn, timing the punch with your up-extension movement. The punching action can be used with the basic down –up-down turn or combined with many of the other powder turns such as the jump turn and the jet turn.
This Video Tutorial is from the “SkiTips 3” App for iPhones and iPads and from the “Powder and Off-Piste Skiing” eBook, both available on the Apple AppStore.
