Hi, I hope this isn't too silly a question, but I have some used rossi GS skis that I like to bring out for groomers, and they are a blast when I'm carving, but when I don't want to go all out and start putting some skid into my turns, the outside edge will lock up then release violently 2-3 times during the course of a turn. This is only on every second or third turn, and it happens predominantly on my right side, though it still happens to a lesser extent in softer snow and on other pairs of skis.
So, I guess my question is, is this chattering? I'm not terribly familiar with the lingo, but it seemed a bit more slow and jarring than other people had described. If so, any advice?
I'm a competitive nordic skier who gets out alpine skiing once or twice a year. I can ski most any terrain I feel like, though I imagine my technique on alpine skis is not ideal.
Thanks a bunch.
