Carving – Various Turn Shapes

This demonstration video may appear to be a shameless promotion for Piste to Peak Volume #3. That's because this is the teaser video for it... so I guess it is! We'll document some more specific carving objectives in future posts, but for the time being this demonstrates a fairly broad spectrum of carved turn shapes.  

Demonstration Objectives:

  • Use the ski design (the side cut's self steering effect) to create various turn shapes.

  • Show various corridor widths.
  • Show various degrees of loading and deflection.
  • Link turns from one arc to the next.
