PHASE 4 / 04 / Single Skate Turning
from Rollerblade on 19 May 2023
https://www.rollerblade.com/usa/skate-to-ski/Similar to one leg ski turns, the challenge of this drill is typically in making the pinky toe (outside) edge turn. Making the outside edge turn requires you to be flexed, stacked over your turning foot, and to drive your knee into the direction of the turn. This exercise on skates builds the skills and body position necessary to carve on your uphill ski.If youre having challenges with this drill make sure your skates are securely tightened. Loose fitting skates are almost impossible to balance on. This is also a drill that is easier to perform if you are using molded shell vs soft upper skates due to the support they provide.
