Starting the season right is the key to a long season of fun on the mountain. Getting your feet dialed in so you can balance on top of your skis or board makes for much easier skiing or riding.
Here are a couple of thoughts that I use to get my center.
1. Simple sport. Keep your body over your base of support.
2. Balancing on the side of the ski is what makes them carve and hold, if I push or try to edge hard, the ski breaks loose and chatters.
3. Explore a range of movements. Modern skiing allows for a lot more variety of movements. Do what it takes to make the ski or board do what you want. Ski and ride with intent then try different movements to accomplish the task.
4. Early season conditions exist. Give yourself a break on your ability and slow down.
Just a couple of quick thoughts. More specifics to come. Happy skiing.
