Rebecca Corbally

Here Rebecca is skiing one of her first red runs and making a nice job of it. She has fundamentally good technique but need to adjust her upper body position. Excessive bending of the knees is forcing her weight backwards and making her ski on her heals. Also she is rushing the beginning of the turn with excessive ankle rotation instead of waiting for the edged ski to make the turn. She has good separation of her upper and lower body with her shoulders facing down the hill during the turn.

1) Bring your hips forward more over your knees.
2) Edge you skis more to initiate the turn instead of using ankle rotation.
3) Try to get you head more over the downhill ski.
