I can parallel competently (like the CSIA site said that I should be able to do). I can ski down a black hill without much trouble.
I did have an instructor one time tell me to distribute my weight evenly, but isn't the point of parallel turning to shift weight from one ski to another?
What else should I do to prepare for it? I don't think I can afford a one-on-one lesson, but I can definitely go into another group lesson or something. Is it hard?
Also, what would be a good way to practice my parallels a bit more? How can I keep my skis together a bit more closer without losing balance? I find that I can keep my skis close together when I'm skiing on an easy run, but once it gets steep, I start to lose that closeness.
Thanks in advance!
