This is my first attempt to get some help on here with my skiing. I grew up in the Southwest and skiied 4-7 days a year on trips for about 6 years. I was OK. Basically, a 5-6 level.
I moved to the NY area and skiied a lot in Vt back in 96-99. I got pretty good (a solid 7, I'd say). A few years off and then 3 years ago I took it back up seriously. I have been skiing a few days this year in typical conditions (hardpack). After my last day, I thought that I was back to my old solid 7.
Then, the glorious snow dump happened on THur /Fri. I got the wife to let me get away for the day to Belleayre (they had received more than a foot).
The conditions were soft. Soft that I had forgotten about sans a few days back when Mt Snow would get hit back in the 90's.
Suddenly, yesterday I could not ski for crap. Is there a mental aspect that I need to approach "good snow"? I was ripping the blacks two weeks ago. Yesterday, I looked like an idiot that would ski two nice turns then look like a moron when they hit something other than boiler plate.
Help pls TIA!
