Shaft canting and alignment

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I’m executing a turn to my right and just at transition I transfer my weight distribution to the outside ski. I am trying to create a nice symmetrical turn shape so I’m delaying the edge change at the apex of my turn. What happens is that if I am not very deliberate my outside edge will literally engage and take off and throw off my turn rhythm and balance.           

I know I can avoid it by riding the inside edge of the outside ski a little heavier so I guess my question is this.

Should I experiment a little bit with the boot shaft canting and try and correct it? Thanks!

wikked1,

 

This sounds like to much inside edge engagement----could be a canting or knee tracking problem---go see a fitter to get this resolved.

 

Happy Holidays

Are you using any footbeds, insoles or orthotics?

Thanks for the responses guys ,yes I am using orthotics and I think it was just the beginning of the season finding my ski legs again.

I have since found balance (and solid edges) by not riding the tails (no matter how cool it feels)!
