How do you turn on Altai Skis?
  These skis are easy to turn because they're short. The best technique is called a Telemark turn. One foot is held ahead, with knees bent, the way you see ski jumpers land. With a little more than half your weight on the back ski, you can slightly turn the lead ski. Then by shifting more of your weight to the front, you will follow the lead ski around in a graceful curve. Like anything else, it takes a little practice. Here's a youtube link that will help you learn: Telemark
