Improve your Parallel Skiing using a BOOTY BAND

If you want to improve your Parallel Skiing and take it to the next level, this is the video for you. Note that in this lesson we strap your feet together with a Booty Band (Resistance Band) so it can feel a bit uncomfortable and even be a little dangerous so please be careful. If you are just starting out maybe this is not really for you just yet but keep it in mind and try it later on as you become more skilled.

Before you write this off as being Old School and Outdated please check out the video. Chris is a 17y old jr racer and if you haven’t seen any video of him skiing yet please check them out here on my channel. He really rocks both on course and off course. He has made tremendous progress in two years.

So he is very good at carving but there are many areas where he lacks technique and confidence. Basic parallel skiing and nailing that Open Parallel Turn or the Parallel Christie so to speak is one. Nailing the Open Parallel Turn would give him access to advanced Bumps and Powder and open up totally new opportunities around the mountain. Note, being able to ski the entire mountain in a safe and controlled manner should be the target for all of us.

The challenge here is to use synchronized leg movements. No stemming or stepping or wedging. Not before you strap your boots together like this will you ever know how much you move your feet around to compensate for bad balance and flaws in your technique. This is exactly what happen to me as well. It was really an eye opener for me. I was cheating. So was Chris and everybody else we have tried this drill on. Your first sensation will be that you have absolutely no clue as to how to make that first turn. That is a good sign because there is an easy solution. You need to initiate the turn with an Up-UnWeighting move in order to pivot your skis into a skid/drift. Or if you carve simply just tip the skis on edge. The narrow stance will force you to balance correctly over that outside ski. It really has many benefits. Nowadays I always carry a Booty Band in my ski jacket.

Have fun but be careful. Please read the Disclaimer at the end of the video.

And yes, this is my first voice over so please give me some feedback on that as well. Do you want voice over or text on the screen or both (subtitles).
