Right Side V-2 Alt

Left Side V-2 Alt

V-2 Alternate, aka "Open Field"

The V-2 Alternative means you glide on one side and pole, and then glide on the other side without poling. There are two videos with the V-2 Alternate, showing poling on the right side and poling on the left side.

V-2 Alternative is a high gear. It works best in flat sections with good glide and downhills. It gets the name Open Field, because it works best in sections of the course that are like fields...flat areas. To ski the V-2 Alternative, you need to have good balance.
