Fit Ski

can some one give me tips on skiing please?

Hi, I'm going skiing in Austria next February with some friends and I have never been before. I want to be able to look like I know what I'm doing and learn quickly but I can't afford lessons :(
I would really appreciate it if someone would give me some hints or tips on how to be a good skier :)

There are 4 basic skills for skiing.
Balance, steering, edging and pressure. These are explained in most ski teaching manuals from most ski schools or teaching progressions. How they are applied varies from country to country. You should be able to purchase the basic books on Amazon or Ebay. The basic skills are put together with timing.
To prepare yourself for skiing, practice balance on one foot in well fitting ski boots and be able to hop to the other foot with your eyes closed, keep your chin up while you do this. Practice developing strong core body exercises. There are many teaching videos and books for sale and on line. Pressure the length of the ski into the snow through the edges. Steer the length of the ski with your leg with the knee flexed. Learn to skate, like roller blades. when you have these basics under control, remember that skiing is a dance with a slippery slope and with gravity. Go to a ski shop and get your boots properly fit to your foot. Save as much money as you can and take a series of lessons from a qualified professional instructor. This is for your own safety and the safety of others. Trying to learn to ski without lessons is like trying to drive a car on a major highway without reading the driving manual or taking any driving lessons. Spending a 100 E$ for a day class lesson is cheap insurance against a broken leg or injuring someone else.
If you insist on skiing without lessons please let me know in advance so I can be safely somewhere else.
