  • Off-piste is a very broad subject and what we're going to look at today

  • is something you'll find a lot of around the mountain

  • and that's tracked out powder stuff that's had a lot of traffic over it

  • and people skiing down. It's really important to keep the basics

  • of what you've learn't on piste

  • the techniques exactly the same we're going to look at some tactics

  • to help you get this sorted and a good strong body position

  • Quite a challenge but really good fun. Everybody's dream is to ski powder

  • but the reality is when you come off-piste a lot of the time is going to be this

  • crud or chopped up snow.

  • Each turn might feel different so having a good solid body position

  • is going to really help and absolutely no hesitation

  • between the turns as soon as you're ready go for the next turn

  • Trust the skis they're going to cut through this stuff

  • My arms are in front

  • and a good strong pole plant is helping me link the turns

  • once I finish the turn in control

  • I fully commit to the new turn without any hesitation

  • be really conscious about how you are standing

  • keep those arms in front and line yourself up nice and smooth

  • the chest can face towards the tip of the bottom ski

  • but if you start to lose your inside hand

  • and getting loose, too much twisting and loosing that balance

  • you're going to really struggle this snow. Keep the hands there

  • Keep yourself lined up.

  • I'm staying in control so that I don't panic at the start of the turn

  • and feel the need to throw the skis around

  • Remember, smooth round turns

  • So it's not about being relaxed and floppy and too loose

  • but if you're really stiff and rigid every single bump

  • and rut you're going to hit is going to really throw you off balance

  • and adjust what's happening. So keep yourself firm but don't go rigid.

  • Skiing varied snow like this

  • is excellent practice for your skiing in general.

  • From piste to powder it's all about getting the basics right

  • and crud will highlight areas you need to work on

  • Have faith in the skis

  • even though the snow looks really choppy they will cut through it

  • sometimes the snow might look quite flat but underneath it could be quite choppy

  • keep the position there, relax those legs and let them absorb everything.

  • There are obstacles down here so I'm looking ahead and plotting my run

  • Knowing where I'm going will give me a lot more time

  • and let me ski the whole slope as a run

  • Keep these tips in mind

  • and you'll find you'll start enjoying the crud instead of trying to avoid it.
