Short Radius Turns

To ski short radius turns, press down on the skis the same way that you do for the medium radius turns but release the pressure quickly as you initiate a turn. Roll your feet across the fall-line and press down on your new downhill ski. The skis will turn sharply, making a tight or short radius turn. The tighter the turn, the slower you will ski. Try to keep your chest constantly facing down the fall-line. You can turn with or without planting your skipoles.
