your skiing and the other videos is quite different and people can decide which they like.
But your video on Holiday certainly does NOT look the yellow or the red line painted over the moguls -
it wanders much more left and right (mostly right, but that may be camera angle)
I understand you dont like "slamming the rut" But i think you skiing shows a mix of "stuffing the tips" (left side)
and slamming the rut (right side)
I don't see myself slamming sideways into the rut, but agree in this section, my left turn is usually stuffing the tips, followed by a right backside turn. I'm very comfortable turning either left or right into the mogl face, I don't have a preference and don't think about it. The backside turn is very smooth and sometimes my look like the tails bounce off the rut below, but usually hooks up and finishes before I get that low.
Both the red and yellow line represent the technical line or skiing over the tops. The yellow line is usually a combination of turning into the mogul face (stuffing the tips) linked with a turn down the backside. This is the focus and intent of SVMM. It is quite rare this can be done consistently in natural terrain as it is random, the Holiday video is no exception as the terrain is very asymmetrical, there are no zipperlines longer than 3 or 4 turns. In order to ski a perfect yellow line, a perfect zipperline is required, because I'm only shifting approx. 3' laterally from it. I think my intent and focus is clear in the Holiday video, I'm clearly turning into the mogul face whenever I can and definitely not tracing the bottom of the zipperline.
I talked about the sequence @ :41 and :55 in a previous post, I flew right over the next mogul below me, it certainly wasn't boring let me tell you, regardless of the the "Griz" says. LOL
Regarding the pic from 1:55, I think it would help if the backside turn before it was posted, so here it is.
Clearly a sweet backside turn followed by stuffing the tips into the bump/knob below at 1:55.
I dont have a dog in this fight, but your words and your skiing dont exactly line up.
I think the pics line up with the words quite well, throughout most of the video also. It's not a perfect world Doc, the yellow illustrated line clearly represents the technical line in a picture that is fairly symmetrical for 6 moguls, usually natural terrain is no where near as symmetrical as the bumps or line in the illustration though. Look at how high I go off/over the bump @1:55 and I clearly turned into it. I agree, I did not go straight over it, but look at what is below that thing. I wouldn't consider the bump @ 1:55 anywhere near typically shaped or formed.
The key with SVMM is that transitioning broken lines is seamless, we try to maintain a cadence with our turns, we never have to wait or hesitate between turns, we certainly don't pivot our skis sideways and slide statically down to the bottom of the rut. So if a rut is in my line, I may have to turn with it (deflect) or turn into it and I may have to link 3 or 4 zipperline turns or higher up off the shoulder before the zipperline will ends or shifts or I can climb out of it.
