Instead of studying for finals, I thought I would assemble a carving video from last season. I figured it would be a good way for everyone to dust off the MA cobwebs for the new season.
The skier: 205 lb, 23 years old, ex-racer.
Equipment: Nordica Dobermann Aggressor 130 boots, old Nordica Dobermann SLR 165s with marker plate + binders
Location/Conditions : Easter weekend at Arapahoe Basin, mid-winter conditions though. Very soft freshly groomed snow.
My goal for this video was powerful, smooth, arc-to-arc SL-style turns. My specific focus was to implement a flexed transition and work on earlier tipping in the high-c portion of the turn for earlier engagement, as I had been lacking all of that previously. As a consequence of these changes, I sometimes wind up in the back seat, but I think it is coming along well overall.
Any comments are appreciated. Thanks!
Looks best in full-screen HD.
