The completion of the turn is where many skiers unravel. It is crucial to avoid reaching for the handle at this point. Prematurely reaching for the handle will rotate your upper body into the turn, causing your hips to fall behind your feet. This will result in diminished forward speed. Instead, keep your inside hip rotated forward as you ski your free hand back to the handle. You will now be hooked up with your
hips stacked atop your feet, ready to accelerate.
