Use A Shadow To Check How Your Skiing

You can judge your skiing form while skiing alone. You just need a little help from above.
There's something about many skiers. While they enjoy all of the time on the slopes, they are constantly making adjustments to get better. When skiing with friends, they may tell me one or two things that I may be doing sloppy. But when I am alone, I do a lot of self analyzing. Especially on days like today when the sun was shining bright. If the sun is at your back, you have a great visual to your form. I often watch my shadow and take a look at what's going on. Is my upper body turning too much or bobbing? How are my shoulders angled? You can learn a lot by watching. And another benefit is that it keeps your attention down the hill which is where your upper body should be going anyway.

Happy Turns!
