A New York investment professional, Keefe Gorman serves as a managing director at Merrill Lynch. Outside his career at Merrill Lynch, Keefe Gorman likes to snow ski.
To improve your skiing skills, keep the following in mind:
- Extend your arms forward. In addition to adding more stability, extending your arms ahead of your body helps you accelerate. You gain more speed the farther you stretch your arms forward, according to Billy Kidd, an Olympic medalist.
- Fix your stance. Proper body positioning helps you avoid fatiguing your leg muscles prematurely. Fight the urge to position your torso too forward or back, and work on keeping your legs directly underneath your torso. Your shoulders should point downhill to enhance control.
- Keep your knees bent. Squatting slightly helps you maintain control as well as prepares you to ski over uneven terrain. Bend knees enough that your heels stay in the boot’s heel cup. In doing so, you also correct your stance.
