Thanks for all the comments and tips. Point taken about skiing too close to others. I agree, the camera probably makes it look closer than it actually was but it was still too close. I apologize for the lack of respect that I displayed there.
This video is not in fast-forward.
How can I be in the back seat if I am activly applying pressure with my shins in my ski boots (im talking mainly about the tree scene here)? Also, good mogul skiers "feel" their knees come up towards their chest while they ski moguls.
I am skiing on 191 cm Salomon Shoguns that are 102mm benneth the foot. They are not made for groomers. I honestly do not see what I would gain from "learning" wide arching turns on groomers all day. I already know edge control and linking turns. I dont want to ski hard snow, I want to ski off-piste and in bumps. It was a bad season for this kind of skiing. Also, I dont want to get new skis -- I love these skis and want to ski on them for 10 years.
The powder turns at the start were literally my only powder turns of the entire year (very bad season for powder). That was not good skiing and I agree that i was shopping for turns but that came from being uncomfortable with my first power turns of the season and not a lot of powder experience in general.
Ive been told on here many time that I need to widen my stance to put my skis more on edge. I dont want to but thanks for the tip.
You cannot sit here and tell me that the trees scene is intermediate level skiing. Maybe the camera doesnt do it justice but those are bumps/crud in trees on a relativly steep slope (American, Skiers left side trees -- Peak 9 at Breck). Honestly, I would like to see someone on here ski those trees better on 191 length skis.

But seriously, why ski so close to people in situations where clearly it was not necessary?
