1. TURN SHAPE
As a skier, it is important to be tactful with your turns. Focus on creating turns that are smooth, round, and constant in shape. Take as much time during the first half of your turn as you do during the second half. Allow your turn to happen, without rushing from one end to the other.
"Imagine that you are standing in the middle of a clock," Ryan said. "When you point your skis directly downhill, you are facing 12 o'clock. As you make your turn, point your skis towards 9 and slowly hit all numbers, 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3, before starting your second turn in reverse order, 3, 2, 1, 12, 11, 10, 9. Allow the same amount of time pointing at each number. This makes for smooth, round, consistent turns."
