So over the last 2 years my carving technique has improved quite a bit. It actually looks like I know what I'm doing. But honestly, all I do is roll onto the edges and let the skis do the work. However, when I get into variable terrain that's not carveable, my skiing looks much more awkward. I also have problems with really large bumps. I think I fall into the "It's not that you can't ski bumps, it's that you can't ski and the bumps prove it" category. My technique is good enough to looks solid on groomers, but I do this strange thing with my legs in turn transition when I'm not carving. Also, it doesn't look like my pole plants are very good, either.
Anyway, I spent the last week in Utah powder (got lucky) and my flaws really hampered my skiing. Here's a video from late one day last week just skiing a groomer that got a little too bumpy for carving.
Thanks for any help you guys can provide.
