I've only been on the slopes for 11 days, and love to do nice big turnes down several Blue runs at Beaver Creek. Two weeks ago we got a good foot of powder and I set off on my own and try it out. Lets say right now I hate powder and hate chopped up powder even more. When I ski the groomed runs I can feel the pressure on my shins and the edges of the skis when i turn. But in powder I can't seem to flex the boot and my balance is all over the place feet are pulled every direction and I'm generally out of control. I generally have pretty good balance but after two days of trying I really was turned off.
I'm 6'3'' and 230 pounds very athletic and work out a lot.
I'm skiing some Elan magfire 78ti and my boots are Nordica Hotrod 105 (flex with a dial to 95-105) currently set to 95.
Are there any drills or things i can try to increase my ability to flex the boot ? Or do I need to just relax and keep skiing the blues and focus on technique and it will come with time.
