Ski Lesson Stationary Release The Key to Starting Parallel Turns
Your lesson will help you to release to start a turn, then continue the releasing action of the free foot to engage the stance ski and bring you through the fall line without pause or hesitation. Practicing the Stationary Release will develop your confidence in the movements that start turns and engage your skis. On steeper terrain, it’s important to use simple and effective movements to start and link your turns. A shaky, hesitant start will cause you to accelerate beyond your control. The movements of the Stationary Release will engage your skis early, without twisting or sliding, so that your turns and speed are controlled. As well, simply alternating the actions of one free foot and then the other will lead to rhythmical turns without hesitation, pause, or traverse.
