In this ski lesson from the creators of the Ski School Apps ( ) ski instructor Darren Turner explains how to do a snow plough when skiing and sets you up for the next lesson, where you will make your first snow plough turns on skis. A flat area and then a gentle slope are the best locations for this demo, you’ll also need a buddy.
