An implement operating like a plow, but on a larger scale, for clearing away the snow from roads, railways, etc.
Also referred to as wedge. It is one of the first ways we learn to stop. It is when your ski tips are almost touching forming a triangular shape (aka - Pizza). Also the piece of machinery that clears the roads after a snowfall so we can get to the mountain.
To put skis in V-position to turn or slow down.
A converging ski position also known as the "wedge," which is formed by opening the skis in a V-shaped (tips together, tails apart) and rolling the skis onto their inside edges. Snowplowing is the simplest method of controlling speed.
Often the first technique a beginner learns. The front tips of the skies are almost touching as the back tips are bowed outward, creating friction and helping with balance and control. Even advanced skiers use the technique at the beginning of runs while they put on gloves or adjust goggles.
a vehicle used to push snow from roads
A means of slowing or stopping on skis in which ski tips are pointed inward, tails outward, and pressure is put on the inside edges.
A method of stopping in which the front tips of the skis are brought together, almost touching, while the tails are spread outward.
A snowplow (or snow plow, US English; in UK English, snowplough or snow plough) is a vehicle, or a device intended for mounting on a vehicle, for removing snow and sometimes ice from outdoor surfaces, typically those serving transportation purposes. In many cases, pickup trucks are outfitted with plows from brands such as Western, Meyer and Fisher, to fulfill this purpose, and some regions that do not frequently see snow may use graders and other equipment to fulfill this task. However, it is common for areas that regularly receive large amounts of snow every year to use specially-designed winter service vehicles whose primary purpose is to move snow and otherwise improve roadway conditions in cold weather.
