In skiing, we have to support our torso on top of our legs as we curve back and forth on edge in our turns. Knowing how to arrange the pelvis on top of the stance leg is critical for best edge grip, best balance, and stability in varying terrain. This video shows you, on-snow and with indoor training, how to CB and CA at the level of the pelvis for your best skiing performance.
