Ok so here is the deal, im kinda new to skiing, this year was the first time I started skiing in my life, and so far I went skiing 4 times.
Now first i practiced snowplow till I really got the hang of it, then wedge turns and then I worked my way up to parallel.
Atm im feeling very comfortable in doing just about anything from the things I mentioned on blue areas, well mostly im doing parallel since I see no reason in using snowplow anymore.
But last time I went ( the 4th time ) I was riding some blue tracks and then decided to go on a new path which leads to another blue path and a red path, and I was never there before.. things went well till I reached that intersection and I made the wrong turn because I found miself on a red track and it was really freaking steep, couldn't do much else then since the way up or towards some chairlift was too long so I went through it, it was pretty long and I had some huge problems tackling that hill.
Now what I want to know is, what do you guys think I did wrong, im obviously going to work my way up, im not just going to go on a 2 times steeper hill as I ever skied on, but it was a mistake and well what can you do, but still it gave me some experience on how the skies feel on such a steep hill and how they react, so now im trying to analyze the whole thing a bit.
One thing I noticed was that when I went along the hill and then tried to turn the other way in the end I lost control completely unlike on not so steep hills where I have perfect control, specialy the front skies they were completely lost, now my theory is that I might have unwillingly leaned back too much out of the fear that the big steep will speed me up alot and il lose control, do you think that was the problem?
And sometimes it also made me turn way too much and I fell, instead of going straight after finishing the turn it keept turning me upwards with my skies cuz i lost control, why was that?
In any case I had loads of problems, but it did give me some experience at least, and perhaps it will make my working up towards such steep slopes easier.
