we're on the same page then. I do not feel there is a clear way to convey the idea of inside foot tipping tothe LTE, to children. I'd love to hear if someone has some good approaches for this with kids. Telling them how to tip their skis has been covered many ways of course... We have many visualizations for how to tip or untip, but anyway, never mind, seems like nobody gets my question.
My eleven year old has an annoying habit of trying to scrape the snow off the top of one ski with the other whilst on the lift. I'm sure most kids do this; snow on their skis bugs the little OCD darlings. She does it by tipping the LTE across the other ski. I got tired of the scratches on her skis one day and told her to stop. Being a kid, she got off the lift, picked up one foot and tried to scrape the snow off whilst skiing. Perfect turn. Now she just "scrapes the snow off" to initiate her turns.
