I made a short youtube clip of some of my skiing from tonight. I am the guy in a yellow jacket with black/purple skis with a white diamond logo. It's a mix of POV from my helmet and a few shots taken by my partner from her helmet. I'd be interested in any and all feedback.
Is my stance too wide?
Are my skis not parallel enough?
A few notes:
- This is my second season skiing. I have taken some lessons and will be taking some more lessons next month.
- Conditions were fairly icy. I was not using the best skis for the conditions. These are the Black Diamond Drift skis. They are light and fairly soft backcountry skis that work well in powder. Dimensions are 136-100-122 and 176 cm.
Thanks in advance for any comments, criticisms and suggestions.
P.S. I realize this may come up so I will address it now. At 1:10, I do ski fairly close to my partner. We basically had the hill to ourselves and we had planned the shot ahead of time so I knew she was watching me and would not move. It would still be fair to say that I should have given more room.
