So yesterday I went up skiing, and felt like a complete newb again. I wiped out twice which is pretty rare for me, even on the first day when I wasn't skiing anything difficult or doing anything stupid. My wipe-outs were on turns when my uphill ski caught some snow and spun me out. Now last year, I took a lesson and the instructor said my basic fundamentals were good but I needed to focus on keeping both skis on the snow no matter what the conditions. Since the lesson was near the end of the season last year, I really didn't have much more of a chance to work on it. So yesterday I was focusing on that and other basic fundamentals again, and found myself wiping out. What am I doing wrong? Am I not applying enough pressure on the edge of my uphill ski? Thanks.
