Chris explains how running the skis straighter up the hill helps the skier get his weight further forward and also creates a greater shin angle, which translates to more glide.
Chris demonstrates three different styles of Offset:
- Older style, feet return close to the midline of the body (not recommended)
- Wider Stance (better)
- Wider Stance with straighter skis (best)
