Short turns! Use PMTS movements to learn the bulletproof short turn and apply it to ungroomed slopes. The Expert Skier 2 video follows the Expert Skier 2 book closely, working on the PMTS technique you need to be a solid skier on ungroomed terrain. It shows you how to build that technique and how to apply it to bumps, powder, and steeps. As well, you'll learn how to really carve - not just edge better, but really lay it over and leave grooves in the snow!
