10 Ways to Improve Your Ski Performance

71271073-56a87e893df78cf7729e5632
  1. Focus on a point:
    A good way to quiet a critical mind and to allow your body to perform without interference is to focus on a distant point to ski to, to turn to, to hit to, to run to, etc…
  2. It’s natural to make mistakes.
    It’s an integral part of learning. Your body is simply adjusting to new movements.
  3. Stop comparing your performance with everyone else’s.
    You will always be better than some and not as good as others.
  4. Learning new movements may feel uncomfortable.
    When learning new movements and/or attempting to change existing body patterns your body will often feel uncomfortable. Don’t worry, it’s normal. The uncomfortable feeling will gradually disappear.
  5. Notice things you are doing successfully.
    Each time you find yourself downgrading your performance, immediately find something that you are doing that’s working, there is always something. Focus your attention of what is working rather than on what isn’t.
  6. If you feel tired, don’t stop, just slow down
    Repeatedly tell yourself, “I’m going to stop being tired.” This is how you train yourself to perform well, even when you are fatigued. It’s also a way to develop a “second wind.”
  7. What to do when you find yourself struggling and unable to relax.
    Picture yourself performing smoothly, rhythmically, and with ease
  8. When you feel tense.
    Ask yourself: “is it necessary for that part of my body to be tense?” If it isn’t say to yourself, “it’s okay, you can let go, you can relax now.” Say it as often as you feel it is needed, let your body take the time it needs to relax.
  9. Play with people who want to succeed.
    It’s much easier to perform when in an atmosphere where you are not constantly criticized by others.
  10. Challenge yourself.
    Play with people who are more accomplished than you.
