One morning in March while changing into my uniform someone in the locker room commented on how hard it could be to get students to "fall" from one turn into the next. I commented that in my skiing I never fall into a turn, that falling into a turn is way to slow and passive to support the type of skiing I enjoy, I don't have the time to wait for my body to fall into the next turn. One of the others suggested that one of this seasons buzz words from on high 'topple' was a better word. Topple,shmopple, that's just another word for fall.
One of the instructors brought up the old concept that you fall into the turn and catch yourself. I pointed out that this idea leads to late edge engagement after the ski passes through the fall line because it is physically impossible to "catch' yourself on edges that are engaged above the fall line. Now, one of the most common reasons for failure in the level 3 exams is inability to consistently engage the edges before that fall line yet here we are perpetuating a concept that trains a late edge engagement.
Personally, I am always striving to propel myself where I want to go and find that 'falling' is seldom involved in getting there.
