I've been practicing one legged skiing. I'm very new to it but can get it done. I'm also trying to only use the side cut for steering and not skidding (that's a whole other thread). Yesterday I noticed on my right side, I can easily turn right but left was problematic and on my left side turning right was easy and left was difficult. By difficult and problematic I mean I didn't turn as easily as I did on the other side or it didn't happen when I felt it should.
The skis were atomic Metron 11 b5 in 164cm 14M. Boots are Dalbello Krypton pros, black tongue no inserts. Boots were fitted at GMOL with custom footbeds. When fitted by GMOL, I was told I have "off the shelf" legs and feet, as in they didn't have to do a lot to correct anything. They did notice the bottom of the boots (had about 15 days on them) need to be ground flat just to take a slight wobble out of them.
A year later the wobble was back and I got the boot bases ground again and plates put on. Again, they base was ground flat (no cant). This wasn't done at GMOL.
I checked my boots tonight and they wobble again! More than previously. I don't walk through parking lots and the entire lodge has rubber matting or carpet. There is a tiny section of side walk to cross but that is it.
My thoughts on this is since the right side turns easy to the right, I would take the wobble out (temporarily to try) by applying duct tape to the left side of the boot and on the left boot put duct tape on the left side. On both boots I did this only until the wobble was gone. The right boot got the most with 7 layers.
Does this make sense as an approach to try?
Are there other methods I should try to get everything back to neutral or at least to figure out if my turning issues while one leg skiing is boot related or something else.
