It’s going to take a few days but hopefully, you’ll soon feel more comfortable either skiing or snowboarding. This is when the latter sport starts to reward the beginner for their patience. The balance will start improving and the faster the board goes the easier it is to turn.
With skiing, the beginner has happily mastered the technique of the straight skis and the pizza which has the tips together and tails of the ski apart. They then have to move onto the more complicated snowplough where one ski has to turn in order to change direction. It requires symmetry, balance and quite a lot of practice. Our snowboarder is now zooming ahead while our skier is being left behind, still struggling a little on the beginner slopes.
