They can also traverse the slope with medium speed, can rock back and forth during turns, can exaggerate up and down movement to engage hips, knees and ankles and can navigate bumps and obstacle courses while maintaining parallel turns. This athlete is looking to become a better overall skier and wants to learn different skills such as racing and terrain parks. These skiers will work on adapting body position to terrain, and changing flex in the hip, knees, and ankles to make equipment work for them in varied terrain.
