Is it better to have good technique or ability?
I ask this only because my daughter can ski anything, yet she fails to pole plant on her turns. By anything, I mean just that.
Said fact makes me wonder.
Daughter looks fine when skiing, but is looking good an important part of skiing? Part of me feels being able to handle difficult terrain well is as important as having proper technique.
But what do I know? Only been at this sport for a short time.
I would like opinions.
