Equal weighting

o The most important concept for powder skiing is weighting the skis equally and maintaining balance. When skiing a groomed run, you initiate turns by transferring up to 90 percent of your weight to the downhill ski. In powder, this abrupt motion will cause you to fall because one ski will sink into the snow. The skis must be weighted equally, and turns initiated with both skis. Try pushing the skis together at the start of the turn to get used to the feeling. Powder skiers often talk about unweighting the skis at the start of a turn; this leads to an up-down motion through a turn. Unweight the skis by lifting the whole body to make the skis just light enough to turn both together.
