In this third of the three-part series, you will learn to transfer balance onto the little-toe edge of the new stance ski. This is a key to keeping your skis parallel in quicker turns or more difficult conditions. Using the movements you learn and practice in videos 1 & 2, you'll practice the transfer of balance that is the springboard to short turns, moguls, and ungroomed conditions.
All the Eliminate the Wedge eVideos are dual purpose, suitable for novices as well as more experienced skiers. If you are a novice skier who skis in a snowplow, or a more experienced skier who is learning PMTS Direct Parallel, this step-by-step video will show you how to keep your skis parallel at the start of each turn and establish balance early for the upcoming turn, even in more demanding turns or conditions.
"...I recently purchased eliminating the wedge videos 1,2,3 as well as your video on everyone can become an expert skier 1.
Well! Let me say that you have totally transformed my skiing!!!

*Learn steady balance on uphill, little-toe edge
*Find balance on the uphill, little-toe edge between turns

Transferring balance to the uphill, little-toe edge to start each turn...
*Ensures that your skis stay parallel to start the turn
*The earlier transfer of balance gives you earlier engagement, earlier grip, and lets you tip the free foot more quickly to make shorter turns
