"Dear Klaus, we got your DVD, from Blue to Black Diamond, a couple of seasons ago and it's been the best investment we ever made in our skiing. We love it, and I never thought instruction on a DVD could be better than it is on snow. One of these days we'll send you a video of our improved style, and you can tell us what to work on. Kind regards, and thanks again. Peter and Terry / Australia"

This lesson is an introduction to carving for intermediate skiers.
It should help people that have not discovered the edge yet to find this feeling. The main goal at this stage is to get the student NOT to turn his feet and slide but carve. To achieve this i am using more inside ski lead and hip counter than necessary as this makes the rolling of the knees easier. Once the student realizes that the skis turn all by themselves these things are reduced to the amount necessary.
Instead of getting the student to edge by inclination – "leaning in" I stress the fundamental basic position. As i want to teach a technique which is consistent and works on the blues in the same way as on the black runs.
