Verbier How to ski steeps

Powder Extreme’s top tips for skiing the steeps

  • Keep a strong core – separation of the upper body becomes critical and the steeper it gets the more your upper body needs to be angled down the mountain (which is the last thing your mind is telling you to do!)
  • Strong pole plant – keep both hands strong, in front of you and down the mountain and make a really strong and definite poll plant
  • Don’t stop – the first turn is always the hardest so just keep turning and try and find a rhythm.
