Weighting the Uphill Ski...Max demonstrates FUN in action...

Thread Starter 

Since it is September...and the trees are changing .....we should all reconsider tuning and upgrading our technique from last year...

 

One of my favorite pictures of Max (of Edelwiser ski fame):

Enjoy..

Those used to be known as "Royal Christies" back in the day.  But that is going back some 30 yrs ago.

 

 

Edit: Just remembered - "Royal Christies" has the knee of the uphill ski bent back so the ski tip pointed behind you...I think these were just "wagon wheels".

This sure looks like a wagon wheel to me...

 

 

On a more serious note, I'm curious: For those of you who can do a royal christie do you find

it easy to hold the same pose standing on one leg with the other extended up behind you?

Not on skis, just say in your stocking feet in your living room.

 

Or does the additional stability provided by a ski boot plus turn forces actually make it easier to

hold that pose while skiing?

 

 

That ^^^ pic is actually from a post in "More Retro Memories????" by MWP a few years back

I don't know if he's been back as I've been absent the last bunch of years, but Max attended the Park City gathering a ways back. Super nice guy to hang out and ski with. Did a great job of showing off his skis too...

I can't do a royal christie, haven't had much success skiing one-footed at all, but standing on one foot with the other leg extended is a piece of cake: I do one-legged squats pretty often.  Haven't tried it in ski boots, though.
