Arresting

(Sport: Skiing - Nordic Skiing)

Definition

Stopping a slide down a steep slope by using the ski poles as a brake. Taking the hands out of the ski straps and holding the poles across the chest while forcing the bottom two inches of the sticks into the snow. This results in the upper body weight bearing down on the poles. Although it might not completely stop the descent, it will certainly slow it down.
