I went skiing for the first time in 10 and a half months and I was way rustier than I thought I would be, infact I still feel like my skiing was better later last year, last year was basically my first year skiing of being into it, I went 38 times last year, not just going 3 times a year like the previous ones. (I go to Alta) So, yeah for my first day we got almost a foot of fresh powder and I skied mostly on Wildcat and a little Collins, I am a decent skier but I def. have room for improvement off piste, I find with powder deeper than like 10 inches My right or left tip usually starts to dive and then I crash beause I lose my balance unless I am leaning way back and going pretty fast, I feel like it is less of a problem when I am on steeper and making turns and doin my thang but I'll still get a face full of snow because of that sometimes. The other thing I really need to get better at is skiing skied out powder which has like forming moguls and some soft spots and such, I feel like my tips are way to loose and wobble all over the place and get thrown around and I have to go pretty slow. I think part of this is because I am in back seat right? I see guys on rocker skis charging aggresively down the same stuff and it looks so effortless like they do not get phased at all but the choppy snow and hauling @$$. I have been wanting to learn 360's and that kind of stuff but I really have to be more stable on those kind of conditions because a lot of the jumps have steep landings with that and I just don't think i can ski those out at those speeds. Do I just need practice? because i'd rather not get a lesson ATM
EDIT: if it matters I am on Rossi S7 juniors 160cm long and 90mm underfoot (no rocker) and I weigh 135 lbs.
