That explains it, 7 yr. old skiing at 50mph? B2's must be slow. Holy Cow!
Were you in a tuck to get that fast or just free skiing. Notice I said a tuck, not a tuuk.
Very interesting things happen at those speeds. eg. A roll 1 to 2 meters high, spread over 125 meters in length becomes a compression into a bump that you cannot easily absorb -- you've got to plan for it, else taking air is the only option.
Now that you mention it, I should probably have said something like: "The B2 has an upper speed limit, but most people won't reach it."
My apologies, and thanks for pointing it out. Most people really don't ski like that -- and nor do I in general. But with first tracks and a groomed run approaching cruising heaven, high speed cruising is irresistable.
