In this first video of the three-part series, you will learn to engage - to finish each turn in balance, with your edges gripping, and your skis parallel.
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, this step-by-step video will show you how to finish each turn with your skis parallel. If you are a more experienced skier who is just learning PMTS Direct Parallel, this video will show you the easiest way to integrate the movements of our technique into your skiing.
"...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!!!
