TURNING TOO FAR
While it is important to rotate your hips and shoulders so that you can see where you are going, turning too far can cause issues as well.
MINIMIZE ARM MOVEMENT
If you are learning how to ski backwards to do tricks on the jumps and rails at the terrain park, it’s important to keep your hands in front and not tucked behind you.
You can use your arms for momentum by keeping your hands in front of you when it is time to hit a jump especially if you plan to twist around from skiing backward to skiing forwards or vice versa. If they are too far behind you, then there will be too much arm movement before you do your trick.
SAFETY TIPS TO SKIING BACKWARDS
When you are starting to learn how to ski backwards, it is essential that you begin on either a bunny hill or a non-crowded, groomer-type run. Follow the rules of the slopes, yield to the downhill skier and always be aware of those around you. Through this tutorial, you will learn how to turn your body so that you have the most visibility of the slope in front of you.
