Synchronized skiing involves 2 or more skiers where a lead skier sets the pace and the following skiers emulate the moves of the leader.
Shown above the right skier is the leader while the left skier is the follower. The right skier sets the pace in a rhythmic fashion while the
following skier copies the exact moves of the leader. The leader must be rhythmic and predictable in making turns. The follower must watch the leader,
initiate turns when the leader initiates and complete the turn when the leader completes the turn. This is a great exercise in consistent timing and
copying the turn sequence of another skier which sharpens reflexes.
The skiers above are skiing 180 degrees out of synchronization or "aceing" the turns together.
