Sacrafice to the MA gods......

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

OK, that's me starting @ 45 seconds.....   in my defense, there is a double fall line, (which should be obvious to the true gods, btw.....)   I'm most interested in observations regarding stance and hip activity.....  be gentle, I'm sensitive (not really....)

Hmm... follow POV cam in powder. Not the best thing to work from, but what I see is you pushing the skis out to the side to get them on edge. I'd rather see you be more patient as you change edges and allow the angles to build more slowly as you allow the skis to move away from your body.

Just curious, epic ... what good results would the OP net from this change?

You handled the terrain well, Lou.

Hard to tell a lot without seeing the skis. You have pretty good hand position except the right one likes to drop a little too much. From the rear angle it looks to me as though you move up instead of into the turn and then use your hips to create angles with the skis. Again, the snow hides what you do with your feet. Looks like the legs move at the same time.

LF: I think Epic is saying that if Lou was a bit more patient in allowing the ankles to begin the turn, the entry could be more round and the skis could create the rest of the turn instead of having the tails kicked sideways. He's pivoting the skis around the tips instead of underfoot.
