Backcountry Skiing: Skin Track Corners and Kick-Turns

Kick-turns can be difficult for first time backcountry skiers working their way up hill. There are a lot of variations to the turn, but the goal is always the same: change direction.

The American Mountain Guides Association and Outdoor Research teamed up to make a video on this subject. The following video not only talks about the basics of making a simple wishbone turn, but it also goes into some skills that an advanced skier might employ leading a beginner up the hill.
