Side Step Climb

This is the easiest way to climb up a medium or steep slope. You also learn how to understand and feel where the fall-line of the slope is and how to use your feet and ankles to make the ski edges grip the snow. When climbing, place each ski down on its uphill edge and keep your body in a good traverse position with your chest turned toward the fall-line. Practice on the side of a slope.
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.
