  • Outside Ski Turns | USSA - Foundation
    Perfect Execution Inside ski carried off the snow 100 of the time A deliberate weight transfer can be identified when the skier transfers pressure to the new outside ski Prior to the turn the new outside ski is skied for two ski lengths to indicate balance is solely on the new outside ski After turn completion the outside ski is skied for two ski lengths to indicate balance is still 100 outside ski dominant Turns are mainly carved Speed is consistent throughout entire maneuver Turn shape is relatively round Ski poles are kept off the snow except if used for a pole plant Kid Friendly Start Instructions Ski eight round carved GS turns with all of your weight on your outside ski Lift the inside ski off the snow for the whole turn Between turns step onto the uphill ski and lift the downhill as you traverse before you start into the turn Your poles are only used for pole plants do not drag them or use them for balance Your speed is the same for all of the turns DOWNLOAD DRILL DESCRIPTION updated 11 05 13 SKILLSQUEST SCORING TABLE Coaching Points While this drill fits in SkillsQuest as an edging drill it also has significant components of pressure and rotary skills This drill should be used often in this phase and in the next phases of the ATS progressing into more difficult terrain Progressions to prepare for this drill could include standing on one ski in a straight run stepping from ski to ski in a straight run traverses while lifting the uphill ski traverses stepping from ski to ski and 1000 steps stepping from ski to ski through turns This drill can be done in a training course If athletes are struggling with rotational balance while doing this

  • Pole Jumpers | USSA - Foundation
    Land on both feet simultaneously Skis do not touch poles Economy of movement from the jumping skier Kid Friendly Start Instructions Ski straight down the hill Jump over the poles without your skis touching the poles Keep your skis the same distance apart even when you jump and land Jump and land with both feet at the same time Jump from your legs keeping the rest of your body quiet DOWNLOAD DRILL DESCRIPTION updated 11 05 13 SKILLSQUEST SCORING TABLE Coaching Points Start with dye lines instead of bamboo or plastic gates to jump over for young skiers just starting this drill Move to poles when they are comfortable with timing and have enough jump height to clear a pole Skiers in this phase are still developing their vision skills their ability to see the distance between them and the pole and react with proper timing will be enhanced with this drill Don t expect perfect timing especially when changing slopes distances or speed A common mistake when setting this drill is using terrain that is too steep such that the final poles come up too fast It may be OK to use slightly steeper terrain for training but increase the distance and reduce the number of jumps at this age so that speed is managed With the 8 meter distance as prescribed in this drill the challenge for the initial jumps is clearing the pole while the challenge for the final few jumps is quickness A great way to re use broken gate shafts that haven t lost much length is to screw about 15 of hose that maintains bendability but won t crack in the cold to either end and use these for pole jumpers Drill a hole slip the hose end in on one side and secure
