If you can keep the toes from coming together and placing the weight on the ball of your toes....you will stop! It looks something like this..../ \

Then you want to try and place the weight all on the right foot and stop with your left skate by only doing a left foot "Snow Plow" It looks like this..../ | But turn that left skate more towards a "T" configuration.

Once you do this, the right skate will start to turn as well. Remember to bend your knees and then stand to shift that center of gravity, then start the snow plow.
