So I want to start off my apologizing for the video. For whatever reason, my dad sucks at filming me while skiing. So I apologize if you get nauseous with all the shaking.
Also, sorry for it being so long but I figured I'd just throw all the clips of my skiing in there, the good, the bad and the ugly this way you could get a good feel for my abilities and maybe find a few seconds where it's not shaking uncontrollably haha
I've been skiing since I'm a little kid but never really took many lessons cause I was a stubborn little brat so pretty much just learned by following my dad around.
I typically get in maybe 5 days a year and that's on a good year.
I went to Utah in 2011 with my pops for a few days (been there 3 times) and then last year was the first year I didn't ski at all in I don't even know how long. This year we took a day trip to a small mountain a few hours from us and then went to Jackson Hole for a few days as part of my college graduation present.
I rented Volkyl Gotamas, which is the widest ski I've ever been on before. The first day I skied on 178s which I knew was going to be too long for me but the rental guy told me the 170s would be like noodles, so I trusted his judgement. I didn't like how long they were so for the next 2 days of skiing I skied the 170s and liked them a lot better. (I'm 5'11" and between 165 and 170 I'd say).
Anyways, I don't get to ski much but I absolutely love it and at least personally think I'm doing pretty well for the very limited amount of skiing I get to do. But I'd really really like to be able to improve. I know I don't get the opportunity to work on my technique much but with a little help from you guys at least I'll have some things in mind to work on while I am on the slopes.
So let me know what you guys think and what I should work on. If you could say what I'm doing wrong and then what I should do to correct that and maybe give me a unique way to think of it to help me make the correct movements, that would be great.
