Skiing right is twice as fast, twice as easy, looks twice as good and is half as likely to hurt.
After you can ski right then you can break the rules.
You can't know (before you know) if you're skiing right. Someone who knows has to tell you.
Use your skis as they were designed. Learn about this then let 'em do their job. Trust your skis.
Follow the terrain.
Obey the snow.
