Stein Eriksen, one of the last century’s most loved teachers of skiing technique, was known for his development of the stylish, graceful, effortless turn called the wedel (pronounced VAY-dull). Fluid powder skiing requires quickness from side to side—this is where a tight stance comes in handy, including keeping the skis closer together than one would on a groomed surface. Maintain a smooth upper body, as though you are steering a bike straight downhill while the lower body gently sways to the outside of the turn. When you begin to feel the “bottom” of the snow, do a small pump up to flow into the next turn. When done correctly, you can ski the backside all day without tiring out. So start wedelling today and ski like a legend!
There’s some serious wedelling going on right here! Enjoy a short YouTube-hosted video, posted a few years ago, produced by the Powderhounds, Greg and Lyndel. The Powderhounds may be the most successful ski writing couple ever. Hailing from Down Unda, these two ski like tazmanian devils and, and write the most comprehensive, well-researched powder skiing area reviews we've ever had the pleasure of being subject of, and reading. It’s been simply pure, unadulterated fun hosting them twice, and receiving their well-developed, thoughful and incredibly powder-driven review(s). Read their review of Selkirk Powder
