Screaming round in a perfect arc with not a centimetre of side slip, banked over at 45º,catapulting round the turn and exiting faster than you went in; then looking back to see two perfect knife tracks in the snow the sensation of carving a ski is just awesome!
The truth is that thanks to modern skis, you can start tracking around on your edges after just a few weeks skiing. Its the next level thats tricky. Why do you lose it the moment you ramp up the speed? How do you take up those extreme angles without skidding out? The distinguished team of Peter Hart (presenter and coach), Sean Langmuir (former Olympian and BASI training manager) and Amanda Pirie (former World Cup racer) have the answers. And they don't focus solely on carving. They also show how to vary and shape your turns to control speed and cope with every eventuality on the piste.
The film is packed full of extras including bundles of advice from the Ski Club of Great Britain. Piste Performance, the second instalment from the Skiing Skills collection, was filmed across the Alps by award winning Acrobat TV. A high speed, 1000 frames per second camera was used for the first time, producing breath-taking action sequences and offering a detailed insight into the skills needed to master your piste performance and carving.
