HIGH ALTITUDE SKI TOURING

Skiing in the mountains is a very open affair, where you always have to adapt to the changing conditions and types of snow.

When skiing on the mountain, you can use a situation to your advantage or disadvantage. To use the situation to your advantage, you need to adapt your technique and tactics to your own ability as well as to the conditions and type of snow. This is what makes a good and effective skier.

Try all of the below in different snow types and conditions on flatter and steeper slopes on the mountain.

  • Produce different sizes of turning molds
    Shorter curves, then longer
  • Rounder, then finish your rounds
  • Ski slower and faster
  • More sliding than steering/curving

 

By experimenting on your own, you can develop a new feel that you can use to your advantage when skiing on the mountain in the future. Join us to learn more about how to use a situation and the snow conditions to your advantage so you can have fun no matter what the mountain has to offer.

This is the speed at which the turn/change of direction is easiest, the movements are free, and you are balanced throughout the turn/change of direction. Here you ski at the optimal speed to achieve our goals at your own level. The optimal speed will change as you improve your balance and confidence and your all-mountain experience increases in different and varied snow conditions.

This is the speed at which you can easily move and change direction without losing your balance. One should ski at the appropriate speed to achieve your goals at your own level. Your optimal speed will change as you become more aware of and in control of your body. The shape of the turn (radius) when changing direction is also very important, it also affects your optimal speed. It should be noted that the you will start to become more aware of how to choose the most effective line and shape of the turn while being able to assess the type of terrain and snow. One should ski at the best speed for ones ability so you don’t lose their balance. One is always changing ones body movement and posture, to stay in balance for the situation one is in on the mountain. At the same time, one will try to keep ones center of gravity centrally above their feet in order to get ones own best position over the skis (optimal alpine position/balance (Diagram 1)

The shape of the curve/direction change is also important. This also affects our optimal speed when turning/direction changing. It is important to choose the most effective line (gliding, gripping, or carving) and shape for your speed, snow type, and skill level so that you can ski at an optimal speed for your ability while staying balanced.

You are constantly adjusting your movements to stay balanced. Try to make constant movements at the same speed you are going down the hill and try to keep the body moving forward with the feet to keep the balance over the feet so you can change direction at any time on the hill and steer the skis while turning/changing direction.

In the short time that I and my daughter have gotten to know Toby, he continues to show his love for his work, the love and passion he has for skiing and helping others develop .... I feel privileged to have met Toby and I would like to say that I am confident that wherever Toby goes and whatever he does, he will inspire and motivate others.

Toby has already twice spent four weeks helping to run an annual alpine skiing exercise for around 120 British Army soldiers. ... He has added real value to so many different elements of our ski training and race training. We enjoyed his company very much and could benefit from his wealth of experience in various areas of the alpine environment. He is a true professional and is so versatile that he has improved the experience of our entire team on the hill.

I just wanted to say thank you for the great training week in Pitztal. Her coaching was excellent and I accomplished much more than I expected, especially off the slopes! You helped me develop my basic skills so that you could guide me safely through a number of more challenging conditions. I found the video analysis particularly useful and felt that at the end of the week I had a better idea of how to improve my own skiing in the future. The great snow and beautiful hotel were an added bonus!

Great 3 days in Hintertux. Focused on the core issues, clear in message and delivered with humor! I have the feeling that I have improved significantly. As Arnie said, "I'll be back!"
