To carve in English means to sculpt. Carving is an Anglicism that refers to a skiing technique. This technique consists in anchoring the edges of your skis in the snow, by applying strong pressure on the downhill ski, i.e. the lower one or the outer ski, if we consider that the ski that is more towards the piste is the inner ski. Carving is a turning technique that involves "cutting" through the snow using the edges. Once you've mastered the technique, carving can feel like you are skiing on rails! You will discover an exceptional gliding sensation.
