Definition Of Snowplough
1. The snowplough is a term used to describe a turning and stopping technique for beginning skiers. By positioning their skis in a “V” shape, where the front tips of the skis are together and the tails are wide apart, with their knees rolled inwards slightly, the skier is able to brake and turn easily. By applying pressure to the inside edges of their skis, the person is better able to control their speed and therefore they’re able to make slower turns and come to a complete stop if need be.
It gets its name for the “V” shape of a truck’s snowplow.
