You get sucked down the fall line. That string (gravity) wants to pull you down the hill. Don't fight it! If you get out of the fall line or hold a turn too long, that string will get stressed out and torque you off balance. Don't let that happenembrace gravity and ski the fall line. Page 35 35 A flashlight in your belly button As you ski down the hill, you want to keep your upper body facing down the fall line. Think of your belly button as a flashlight that you must keep pointed directly down the hill.

So how do you accomplish this incredible feat? Basically by doing knee bends. When you bend your knees, the weight of your body begins to move in a downward motion (compression). It's this transfer of momentum to the skis which ''weights" them and causes them to bend underneath you. As you reverse this by standing up again (extension), your momentum takes an upward trajectory and 'unweights' the skis. Another way to think of this is as a coiled spring. As you compress (get shorter by bending the knees) the spring pushes down on the skis, weighting them.
