What is the nosepress turn?

When I started to actually lean forward parallel to the decline, I realized it was a lot easier to turn which helped with not using my arms..
I was scared I was going to plant over my nose until my instructor dude showed me a nosepress turn.. wow, my mind was blown.

|Officer Shred||Holding onto the pants is a great exercise. It encourages lower body steering and correct stance.|

I‘ll definitely try this at the NEXT season! Thanks.

Just a quick tip on how I reduced my arm movement during riding...
When you get comfortable with your turning/skidding/carving techniques, start riding with your hands on your thighs. You can even grip your pants too. It's really sketchy at first, but this forces you to balance without the use of your hands. There are times when you will sway your arms though. That is unavoidable. But practice will make you keep it to an absolute minimum.

Today I went to loveland, co and practice the "push and pull" and try to keep my arms and upper body relatively still. I would say, the feeling is fantastic!!I'm far from real push and pull (especially from toe to heel), but I begin to realize how "beautiful" it is. I even got some attentions from other skiers and riders!
Thanks wolf and Shred!!

I'm not sure I understand right. The "retracting you legs" thing, does this look like "cross-under"? If you can give me some video example, it will be very helpful!

No problem I'm happy to help.
Make sure you read those articles too.

Exactly!!! That's my problem. It seems I try to use my back hand to keep balance. Now I know it's inefficient for turning and looks awful. Thanks so much!
