Imagine yourself with airplane wings carefully balanced on your shoulders. The key to a safe flight is to keep your aircraft pointed down the hill. Your legs will be doing all the work, so try and keep your upper body quiet and smooth. The airplane should move gracefully down the slope, gently banking, and riding up and down as you weight (compress) and unweight (extend) your skis. 25 Toy train tracks Do you freeze between turns, holding your compressed telemark position for a long traverse before you get the gumption to extend and turn again?

Let's start with the downhill foot, also known as the outside or front foot. Your knee should be directly above the toes of your front foot. Both the ankle and knee should be bent, giving you a forward cant. Your front boot will be hidden from view by your knee when you are in a good tele-position. Now the uphill foot, also known as the inside or back foot. This foot is bent at the toe with the heel lifted off the back ski. You support half your weight on this foot, so stand on the ball of the foot and not on your tippy-toes.
