CSW # 5: "Push your skis (some
say 'cut' them)."
Water-skiers when snow-skiing speak of "cutting" their skis,
meaning (I think) that they push them to the side with the legs, usually with
most weight on the back of the skis. It's a method that works for them, but a
snow ski that is pushed is likely to be moved out of its designed turn arc and
end up skidding sidewise until it gets far enough out to be tipped at the angle
that catches the edge. Carving, a much more efficient and versatile maneuver
that is a great deal more fun is either compromised or made impossible by
pushing. Tip the skis or turn them with the legs to get the skis into a position
where they will do the work for you. Your legs will last longer.
