Turn of the one-legged ski

3. Top foot > Top foot (out-edge > out-edge) : Switch the board

Now, here we are the end of lessons of “one-legged ski”.
To be frank, it’s very difficult!

Even though “top foot ski” is unusual, furthermore you need to switch the board to inside the turn just at the turn. (^^)
That inside-foot will become the next top-foot.

I mean, out-edge > out-edge!

So as not to let the edge bite the snow, you need hips and knees incline to the bottom throughout.
The head and the upper body must incline to the top.

When turn, hips and knees must incline to outside of turn throughout.
The head and the upper body must incline to inside of turn throughout.

The direction of body shift 180 degree at the turn, the head and the upper body also switch to the other directions.
Switch your thought, please.

It’s ordinary you can’t do this at first.
Don’t worry about it.
If you can do this easily at first, you don’t need this textbook. =^^=

It’s important that you don’t let the edge bite the snow especially out-edge.
To lay down or flatten the board and release the edge, you must do is:

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

when turn

Incline the hips and the knees to the “outside of the turn”.
Incline the head and the upper body to the “inside of the turn”.

Let’s begin!

First, traverse on the top foot.
This is the same as the lesson of “top foot > bottom foot” at first.

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

1. 斜滑降。腰と膝は谷へ。頭と上体は山へ。

1. Traverse.  The hips and the knees incline to the “bottom”.  The head and the upper body incline to the “top”.

Prepare to turn.

2. ターンの準備。沈みこみ。重心を谷へ。上体をターンする方へ。

2. Prepare to turn.  Sink down.  Shift the CG to the bottom.  Twist the upper body to the direction of turn.

  1. Compress the whole body and sink down.
  2. Shift the CG. Incline the head and the upper body to the bottom.
  3. Twist the upper body to the direction you want to turn i.e. inside the turn. In brief, face to the “bottom” and consequently you’ll get this attitude.

I wrote 1.2.3 but do all the same time, not in this order.

As you begin with traverse, you face to the bottom just before the turn, but when short turn, “the head and the upper body face to the bottom throughout”.
To turn is only below the hips.
Only below the hips and the board turn right and left, while the head and the upper body face to the bottom throughout.

Imagine the scene of “Mogul ski”.
It’s a good idea to watch Mogul ski at YouTube.

• moment of turn

Extend into the sky as you can.  (Reduce the load.)

3. 伸び上がり。抜重。ひねりの解放。エッジの切替。

3. Extension.  Reduce the load.  Release of twist.  Switch the edge.

Extension and reduction the load let the board turn freely.
Release of twist of the upper body turn the board itself.
Reduce the load, at the same time make the board parallel to the snow surface, then the edge will be released and the board will turn easily.
Even if you reduce the load, the board can’t turn unless the edge hold to bite the snow.

the edge has already switched from out-edge to in-edge in this photo.

Until now, it’s just the same action as the first lesson “top foot > bottom foot”.
So about the attitude.

From now on, it becomes difficult.

• Switch the board (Ride on the other board)

Extend and land with inside foot (opposite to the beginning)

From now on, it’s the same attitude of “bottom foot > top foot” lessoned above.

4. 内足に乗り換え。雪面を捉えるために沈む。

4. Switch on the inside-leg.  Sink down to catch the snow.

Just have switched from outside-leg to inside-leg, though it might be little difficult to see.
From left to right, here.

It’s the most important point!

Switch outside-leg to inside-leg (right leg here) and sink down to catch the snow, very immediately switch to “incline hips and knees to the bottom, head and the upper body to the top”.
Most of you stand the upper body straight up, causing out-edge of the inside-leg (to be top foot after : right here) to bite the snow, and then fall you down to inside the turn.

5. 腰と膝は谷へ。頭と上体は山へ。内足スキーの姿勢。

5. Hips and knees to outside, head and the upper body to inside.  The attitude of inside-leg ski. 

It’s an extraordinary attitude that head and the upper body incline to inside.

6. ターン完了! 腰と膝は谷へ。頭と上体は山へ。

6. Turn has completed!  Hips and knees to the bottom.  Head and the upper body to the top.

I say again and again, however please forget the normal ski =^^=

This is the basic attitude of “inside-leg ski (out-edge ski)”.

I’ve you waited.  Now, let’s go to Monoski.
I’m hungreeey!
Well!  Let’s have a lunch at the rest house.  Then, we’ll change the board and begin to Monoski!
カツカレー 800円

Katu-karē (Curry rice with fried pork cutlet) ¥800

It’s a “Katu-karē” one of the dishes in this restaurant at the lakeside in the “Ombara ski area” where Ojisan often go to Monoski.
Foods of ski area are often said that “expensive, little, undelicious”, but “reasonable, enough, delicious!” here.


Japanese most popular dish.
It’s a curry rice mounted by fried pork cutlet.

“Katu” is from “cutlet”, but only fried pork in Japan.
“karē” is from “curry” hot spiced soup originally in India.

I’ve never met the one who didn’t like this dish.

Why not try it, when you visit to here in Japan?
