    APPENDIX ON ALPINE SKIING FUNDAMENTALS ADDED TO ALPINE TECHNICAL MANUAL PSIA’s Alpine Technical Manual now contains an appendix on the Alpine Skiing Fundamentals, which goes into depth about the fundamentals that will help you take your skiing – and your students’ – from good to great. PSIA’s Alpine Skiing Fundamentals are: • Control the relationship of the center of mass to the base of support to direct pressure along the length of the skis • Control pressure from ski to ski and direct pressure toward the outside ski • Control edge angles through a combination of inclination and angulation • Control the skis’ rotation with leg rotation, separate from the upper body, • Regulate the magnitude of pressure created through ski/snow interaction. The appendix explores the history of and need for the five Alpine Skiing Fundamentals, how they apply to the Skills Concept, and how the fundamentals influence alpine ski teaching. All new purchases of the digital edition include the appendix.
