4th Day Judo-Chop Ski Pole turns

On our fourth day of skiing Grandma decided we needed to learn something new. So after we took two runs down boulder she stopped us at the top and showed us how to do ski pole turns without the ski poles. This teaches new little skiers how to make smaller turns on the hill instead of going all the way across each time. The boys got this down pretty quick and all day they worked on it. Here is video of each of them practicing their ski pole turns. As you can see it resembles a judo-chop because of the force of their arm as it comes down. LOL
