Practice schedule

First, let’s begin with “side-slip”.

Side-slip (on the slope)

Lift the top foot.  Side-slip on the bottom foot (board).

(from you. left is top. right is bottom. The boards will slip to the right.)

CG (the center of gravity) is between your legs when you stand on the slope.
The in-edge of the “bottom” rises (or works, or take effect) not to “side-slip” biting the snow surface.

足を上げる。(1)

If you incline the head and upper body to the “bottom” and CG move to the “bottom” foot, the edge spontaneously lies down (flatten) and the board begin to “side-slip” to the “bottom”.

CG stay above the bottom foot or little beyond it.
Side-slip the bottom foot to the bottom,  then CG return above the bottom foot.
So you can recover the balance again.

If the bottom foot doesn’t side-slip, you’ll fall down to the bottom as CG pass over the bottom foot.

谷に体重移動。滑り出す。(1)

You slip the bottom foot (board) more so that CG move to the top, and then raise the edge.
Then you can stop the side-slip.

If you raise the edge without return CG to the top, you’ll fall down to the bottom.

止まる。(1)

You’ve done well this practice, haven’t you?

Because the edge spontaneously lie down (flatten) if you move CG to the bottom.
And, even if CG move to the top more, you can put your top foot down and you get not to fall down.

There is little change of attitude when you stand on the bottom foot.

Watch video. ↓

“outside foot loading”, “bottom foot loading” are the basic of ski.
You load the weight like that unless you know that.

Lift the bottom foot.  Side-slip on the top foot (board).

First, you stand on the slope normally.
You’ll become this attitude spontaneously.

As the direction of the slope change opposite to the above, please switch your point of view=^^=

(from you. left is top. right is bottom. The boards will slip to the right.)

ふつうに立っている。エッジも立っている。(1)

The loins and the knees incline to the “top”.
The head and the upper body slightly incline to the “bottom”.

CG is between the legs.
I load my weight on the top foot more than the bottom seeing this photo.
Or side-slip to the bottom occurs.

You see the edges raise to the top.

• Now, you change the attitude to opposite.

Incline the loins and the knees to the “bottom”.
Incline the head and the upper body incline to the “top”.

上体を山へ。横滑りがはじまる。(1)

Please make this attitude extremely however it is extraordinary.
You can’t side-slip on the top foot unless you make this attitude.
You would fall down to the top without side-slip if you’ve done halfway.

CG pass over the top foot to the “top”.

You see the edge lies down (flatten) and the board incline to the bottom.
The in-edge (big toe side) is lower than out-edge, you know.

Then the side-slip occurs.

When you need to stop the side-slip, you must incline the head and the upper body to the “top”, and move CG extremely to the “top”.
So the out-edge (little toe side) spontaneously raise up and bite the snow surface to stop the side-slip.

I say it’s super difficult. (^^)
It’s no problem if you can’t this at the first time.

ひげおじさん
It’s very important to monoski (out-edge ski, inside-leg ski) away from the common knowledge and the sense of the normal 2-legged ski.  Therefore you must practice and practice side-slip on one foot (especially on the top foot) again and again.  You need to be able to side-slip on one foot in order to step forward!

Failure cases:Lift the bottom foot.  Stand on the top foot (board).  Fall down to the “top” as the edge bites the snow surface.

You must fail like this at first.

(from you. left is top. right is bottom.)

エッジが引っかかって山側に倒れる。×

The head and the upper body stand erect, you see.
Human beings always unconsciously tend to stand the head and the upper body opposite to the gravity.
You don’t want to fall topsy-turvy (I mean hit your head first upside-down), do you?
You are programmed to act like that.

The loins and the knees incline to the “top” therefore the board stand (the edge takes effect).
You can’t side-slip the board as the edge bites the snow surface.

CG pass over the top foot to the “top”.  And then, you’ll fall down to the “top”.

It can’t be helped that the knees bend to the “top” as you’re just falling down.

ひげおじさん
It’s the instinct.
You always unconsciously tend to stand the head and the upper body opposite to the gravity.  When you stand on the slope, you’ll slightly incline the body to the “top”.
It’s normal and natural “auto execute program” to live, but you must withstand to it to “inside-leg ski” or “Monoski”.
As it’s a extraordinary attitude, you must be aware of it.

さっちゃん
Incline the loins and the knees to the “bottom”.
Incline the head and the upper body to the “top”.
