SKIING &
SNOWBOARDING

Exaggerations

Many of the positions shown in the diagrams and animations on this site have been exaggerated so that the leans and weight changes are easier to see. Although this does not convey the correct skiing/snowboarding positions, this site is more about showing how skiing and snowboarding work, and often to be in the right position it will feel like you are in the positions shown. In reality very small movements and weight changes can make a very big difference, and most skiers and snowboarders do not realise what effect they can have, or how small some of the movements they make really are.

This site is intended to be used in conjunction with ski and snowboard lessons, and therefore if you are trying to lean or move more than is needed, your instructor should quickly pick this out and help you correct it.
