Setting an Edge Unweighting a ski by a sudden down movement at the end of a turn. The weight on the ski then increases and brakes it against the snow in preparation for the next turn. An edge set is used in short turns The angle of an edge set in relation to the fall linewill vary according to the degree a skier wants to brake eg: on a very steep slope the angle would be 90 degrees to the fall line, and on a blue run perhaps only 30 degrees.
