We call this linked stopping and is the most powerful method of skiing available. Want to ski a steep black run, then this is your method. It's so powerful that once you are a little more confident it's too powerful for most situations. This liked stopping is in fact to key to extreme skiing! Watch any ski movie and if it's crazily steep this is what they will be doing. Linked stopping
The great thing about this type of turn is that it's a real defensive way of skiing. Linked stopping an advanced turn that can help you out of all sorts of difficult situations, particularly, ice, steeps, narrow, or any combination. All of these conditions are dangerous with the snow plough as you have little control and it wont stop you!
To recap what we have learned, how to stop with our skis across the hill and our upper body relaxed and facing down the hill, how to ease our weight forwards by relaxing our upper body and moving our hands a little forwards. During all of these exercises our skis have remained parallel and our body in a relaxed neutral position with our weight generally in the centre of the ski. Compare this to traditional plough technique where our skis point in a triangle wedge shape, weight way too far forwards with shins pushing hard against the front of the boots, and leaning side to side to turn but in the opposite direction?
