I've just started skiing, I've been four times without any tuition and I think I'm quite good for a beginner.
My problem is turning right. I can turn left, and to be honest right when I have to, but my ski seems t ...[text shortened]... free, you only pay for the lift. What does it cost in the Alps, for example?
Turning left for a right handed person is always easier... even on a bike I power slide better turning left.
What you need to do is watch your feet and see what you're doing right when you ARE turning left. Try to reverse that and do the same thing for turning right.
Whatever edge you are catching, just try to lift that a hair. When I turn, I don't even put my inside ski on the ground, I power off the outside ski.
So, take a look at yourself, and try to do the same thing when turning right. You'll get it, but it will never be as easy as your left turn.
Good luck. For 8 bucks you should have plenty of time to figure it out.
Also, if you make a friend on the mountain, you can ask them to watch you and tell you what they think you might be doing wrong.
