Michael Rogan is SKI Magazine’s Director of Instruction, head coach of the PSIA demo team, and a Special Project Coach for the U.S. Ski Team. In other words, he’s the guy who teaches Olympians how to ski and teaches ski instructors how to teach skiing. Asked to define his personal skiing style, Rogan says: “I like to side on accuracy, precision, and athletic.” SKI has yet to find another skier who can carve as precisely as Rogan in front of a camera.
The short-radius turn is an advanced technique ideal for steeps and bumps. It’s also fun.
