How to ski powder

Powder Extreme’s top tips for skiing powder

  • Rent or buy a pair of fat skis – you will progress faster, fall less, conserve energy and have more fun
  • Avoid getting forced into the back seat – keep pushing your hands forward and down the mountain at all times and never give up the battle to stay centered over your skis or your legs will be shot after just one run
  • Let your skis run – turning gets easier if the skis are moving at a good speed through the snow, if you ski too slowly turning becomes almost impossible
  • Make bigger turns – make wider, more rounded turns (don’t rush it) and slow your rhythm down compared to skiing on the piste
