I've been skiing about 3 days a season for the last 8 years and really want to improve my skiing before I get too old or set in bad habits (I'm only in my early 20s now). I already did my 3 days this year and I found my back was very sore after, but not my legs.
About my skiing ability: I can ski any level of groomed slope, moguls intimidate me (I can get through moguls if I plan my route and do about 4 or so then stop and plan again). I love glades, but I have some trouble making sharp turns and controlling my speed on steeper sections.
What I would like to improve:
Speed control - Although I can ski all levels of groomed trails, I feel that on double blacks (and some blacks) I need to make overly wide turns to control my speed. Is it a problem of posture, weight, balance?
Turning - I have trouble making sharp turns without sort of jumping into it. Is it possible to do it some other way?
Moguls - Any advice on how to control speed? I understand the basics of moguls (legs back on the top, make turns in the depression, etc), but when I try to put it into practice I usually lose control.
Any other bits of advice would be great. Thanks.
