I just wondered if anyone could help me out with an issue I had recently this season. It was my first time back on the slopes for a while and a little out of practise. I wanted to get some turning practise in.
I went skiing with a friend and the nursery slope was really too flat for this and the blue runs were too narrow. So I went on a wide but probably a bit too steep red run with a friend who is a better skier than me. I was skiing fine a few times and then my friend was giving advice - not sure if it was correct.
Well something happened to me a few times during my turning and this has never happened before! I ended up turning round so much I started to go backwards. Also a couple of times I ended up in a backwards snow plough shape. I fell over a few times and just got on with it and had a few good runs. Could someone explain why this would happen so I can avoid it and also know whether perhaps my friends advice was partly at fault? I also intend to take some more lessons when I can.
