Every skier was once a beginner. And every skier had to go through the very tough and sometimes hurtful process of learning how to ski and gaining the basics of a good ski technique. This process does not happen in one skiing season and should be a gradual process, meaning you should take little steps in order to gain the best ski technique posssible. This means that as a beginner you must start with the basics and then gradually progress the intermediate and then to the advanced ski technique. If you follow these tips, you will be sskiing like a pro in no time.
Here are some moves that fall under the begginer and intermediate catagorie.
Ski tehniqueParallel Turns
This part of ski technique is extreemly important because it will eventually be able to handle the hardest of slopes. This move is aimed at allowing the skier to perform rapid side-ti-side turns in fast succession as the skier is traveling at high speed. When a skier is using parallel turns, he is actually facing pretty much straight down
The idea of parallel turning is to allow a skier to perform rapid side-to-side turns in quick succession while travelling at high speed. In parallel skiing the skier is usually facing pretty much straight down the slope and changes the angle only to slow slightly and to navigate around objects such as trees, bumps in the slopes (known as moguls) and other skiers.
Unlike snowplough or stem turns, in parallel turns the skis always remain… parallel. It is a considerably harder technique but it yields the most impressive results. Parallel skiing takes a good deal of experience to master and should only be done by skiers who have first worked through the other techniques thoroughly. A novice or intermediate skier trying to show off with fancy parallel skiing without a solid foundation is a risk not only to himself but, more importantly, to other skiers.
Once parallel skiing is safely mastered, the true joy of skiing can be discovered. Whizzing down hill at speed, confident in your abilities to deal with a variety of terrain – the slopes are yours to discover! A truly polished parallel turning technique will make you stand out from the crowd.

Skiing Moguls
Moguls are bumps intentionally placed or left in ski slopes to make the sport of skiing more challenging and fun. You will generally find moguls on harder runs, called black runs, and they can be a variety of shapes and sizes. In order to ski moguls, you need to be a good parallel skier. Do not venture out onto moguls unless you have the requisite skill as they carry many dangers. The nature of large bumps means that other skiers (who may be descending at considerable speed) may not be able to see a novice in trouble until it is too late. The difficulties of skiing in moguls mean that it is easy to ski out of control and injure yourself by falling on uneven terrain at speed and from a height.
Once you have mastered quick successive parallel turns and red and black runs you may want to challenge yourself further. In that case here is a guide on how to ski moguls:
