REACH, BUT DON’T REACH
The goal is to feel like you are skiing away from the handle as opposed to simply pushing the handle away from your body. This will help ensure you continue your outward direction even as you move into the turn. As you release the handle with your outside hand, direct your reach toward your direction of travel (forward) and allow separation to occur by rotating your inside hip away from the handle, toward the outside of the turn (counter-rotation). The positioning of your free hand is up to you; just keep in mind that it is always in your best interest to eliminate wasted movement.
