"To keep your little skier in balance, coach them to keep their hands out in front of 'em, rather than down at their sides (or worse, behind them). Being in balance means staying nice and stable right over the middle of your feet. If your hands slip down by your pockets or behind you, then you're in the back seat! This means you are leaning too far back on your heels and your leg is pushing against the back of your boot. Just imagine your hands on a steering wheel to keep you in the perfect skier's pose!"
