Losing a ski in deep snow can be tricky. First, you have to find your ski. Then you have to put it back on — or help your child put his or her ski back on — in soft snow, often on uneven terrain.
Skiing at Alta this winter, we watched a friend tomahawk, bounce up, grab his ski, click in and be ready to ski again, in just about five seconds.
He put his ski back on by sticking the tail in the snow at an angle and keeping the binding out of the snow. Lining up his boot toe, he leaned forward and clicked in.
Within minutes, he was skiing powder again. It was a wonder!
Here’s how to do it.
