I am well balanced when traversing down gentle to moderate slopes.
I start side slipping (rounded and diagonal).
2nd star class
I got my 1rst star.
I can link advanced plough parallel turns (I cross the fall line with my skis already parallel and I use skidding for completing my turns) taking into account the terrain, other skiers and the quality of the snow.
I stay balanced when riding bumpy sections whether traversing or straight downhill.
3rd star class
I got my 2nd star.
I can link basic parallel turns of either short or long radiuses adapting my skiing to external elements such as terrain, other skiers, type of snow.
I am well balanced when shussing on varied terrain (bumps and troughs).
I improve my lateral balance by alternating side-slipping and straight-running while traversing (garlands).
Bronze star class
I got my 3rd star.
I refine my turns by skidding less.
Using shorts swings or long turns I adapt my skiing to external element such as other skiers, terrain, quality of snow.
