The Star Turn

The Star Turn is an easy way to turn around when you are standing on a flat or gentle slope. To turn, leave the ski tips in place and step the tails around. If turning on a slope, be sure to place your skis down on their edges so they grip and when you cross the fall-line, take a big step and roll your foot and ankle of your stepping ski inwards so as to place your ski down on the uphill edge.
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.
