What do you think needs improvement in your carving, BSB?  What part of the video do you not like, what part do you like?

Bobby,

 

Is this an effort to improve your own skiing? It looks like a great training tool for instructors to practice MA on.

I really like the way you carve and I really like what you are doing with the poles.

You're right Richie, it is good skiing, but watch the outside ski. It isn't without opportunities for improvement.

Actually! I was pretty proud of this little run for a second or two, but they are always place for improvement. I was chatting with my friend when I post this video. He bring me many interesting points and I work with it . This week I totally change my perception of good skiing. I love to push the limits try new things! This is the main reason I bring this video, show that at any level, you still have place for improvement!

 

thank you!

Something funky happening on both the right-footed turns. Alignment issues, or maybe just happening to hit rough terrain on both turns? You would need to study more than just two turns...

Skill = pressure management (fore-aft)

From the start, but most noticeable about 1/6 to 1/3 of the way into it.

Most noticeable on first left turn after transition from right turn (exacerbated by going over someone's tracks, but still would be there without the tracks).

Outside ski tip needs a little more pressure.

Body part? Not used to thinking this way, I would just press that tip down the hill and get some more weight on it, but perhaps a tiny bit less counter and bring outside hand a little more forward?

 

Nice skiing by the way.

Very nice skiing but what I think is remarcable is the extremly well filmed and produced video. Only thing that is technically wrong with the video is the pixel aspect ratio. But that adds to tipping so maybe its intentional duck.gif. Anyway, this is a professionally made video. If you check out the credits at the end of the video and also other videos by Skibob75 you can see that they are professionally done. To me it looks like someone that studied PMTS and then made his own video of what he thaught was good stuff. I could be wrong as always.

 

Anyway, cant say much about the skiing. It looks very good to me. But I dont understand the task.

 What changes did you make in your "perception of good skiing" BTB?

 

Here's my take:  In the video, you are making huge movements in the pelvis to initiate edge changes and no little adjustments in the feet/ankles/knees.  You are using up all  your range of movement early in the turn and have no way to adjust for changes in the snow or suddenly developing pressures.  Have you developed some newer approaches or is the video your current "perception of good skiing"?

post #13 of 17

1. Intitation phase of the turn (work to smooth this edge change and movement into the turn)

2. legs/hip (use the full range of your legs by driving the legs to move the hip forward)

3. pressure and edge change (play with leg length and mangement of pressure)

4. I would look to extend the legs sooner allowing them to drive the hip inside the arc and keep you moving with the skis. The lack of leg lengthing limits your ability to deal with the snow irregularities, stay up with the skis and keep consistant pressure mangement through the arc of the turn.

 

Great skiing overall.

I'm not an instructor, but I really don't see a problem.  Whatever you need will come to you.  You will feel it, and then know.  Nice.

Actually I stay a little more square with my ski to not enter too much with my hips in the turns. On the video, I kind of lock in a position and incline on. By staying more square I can use more my ankles and knees to increase the angle of my skis on snow.

Hi Alen! Thank you for the pub! Like you can see the video wasn't on my website when i posted it here. I use it as a tool for instructor to work with and at the same time help myself to improve. Thank you!
