Since everyone asked for non-edge-locked carves I went out this weekend (my last weekend on snow) and filmed a few runs of 'brushed' turns [is that what you guys call them?]. This was the first time I've ever filmed of this kind of turn. My usual routine is that I just pay attention to GS/SL skiing and the rest falls into place in other terrain situations as needed.
So, what I've done is put together another video clip of only short turns. Some of the footage is repeated from the other "Free Skiing" clip, but in the interest of showing a few different types of "short turns" I figured that was the best way to do it. So... it shows some high edge angle pure edge-lock turns [first clip... intentionally "different" from my other skiing], some super-short edge-locked swing turns, some non-edge-locked short turns of various shapes, sizes, and engagement, and bumps again, which are of course not edge locked. I intentionally threw in a longer-radius clip at the end just as a reference point for similarities in technique... only a few turns in that clip are actually SR turns, and all of the transitions show a lot of float and delayed engagement.
As I said in a post above: I hate all of the non-edge-locked turns. From a technical perspective they are not my favorite, but I suppose they will have to do. From a strength, mental awareness, technical, and timing perspective, I think the edge-locked turns are far more demanding.
...Anyway, I did this for you guys... I hope you enjoy the new additions. I think "short turns" are the best type of turn to learn to do if you want to tackle the whole mountain with ease.
