No idea if this been covered before but it's something I was thinking about
I will have skied a full year after this year 2013. What I think isn't bad for a 28year old living in Belgium with no really mountains around.
My question is:
I've always tried to perfect skiing my ski's pararell (wich I can say is what I'm doing now), I've always loved just seeing ppl getting down the mountain with ski's looking like they are glued to each other :) (I've never tried mono skiing but thinking of trying it soon, my new boss at work is avid mono skier so might try to get one of his monoski's later this year to try).
Skiing pararell is what I always strived for. But recently I've been watching some carving movies and while it does look 'ugly' (my interpretation) my question was do I miss out on something.
After 1 week skiing with my new ski's last year (K2 rictors) my tips already look quit badly just from them grinding alongside eachother constantly so I know carver ski's aren't really made for skiing like this.
So do I miss out on carving and should I think about getting some new lessons or should I just ski the old way wich I was learned? (did take a break some years for snowboard and snow blades beacause both looked fun but now back on ski's)
