New Technical Skiing Video on youtube - Page 2

post #31 of 46

Love the music on this video. I catch myself watching it a couple times a week, because the skiing IMO is simply beautiful to watch and the soundtrack is very catchy. If I could ski like this guy, I'd give up my day job.

Nice skiing. Obviously technically very good, dynamic, high edge angles, stable hips etc. I have to wonder what sort of impact it will have on the joints and what sort of skier you will be in 10 or 20 years time. :)

  Use it or lose it. Or, don't use it and STILL lose it. :)  

 

   Oh! Welcome to EPIC ;)

Fair call. Thanks for the welcome! :)

   Wasn't trying to bust your chops in any way Mouse (I suppose that wasn't the best welcome), I was just stating my ethos as an active person, although to quote the great professor of ARC-haeology, Indiana Jones, "It's not the age, it's the mileage"-- that's why I recommend regular oil changes :D

I'd argue that stable, balanced, tech skiing is a great basis for longterm enjoyment of the sport. Park and Pipe? Big Air? Not so much. (And yes, I admire their skills as well... amazing stuff.)

  Yep. I'd argue that as well (not quite to the diapers yet, though :)), skiers need a strong foundation both technically and physically in order to enjoy it more (and with less pain) later in life...

"Latter in life"...that caught my eye.

 

When does the strong foundation begin?  With the popular park/pipe, air patrol demographic?  If so, I think we have to come up with a more compelling argument than enjoying it latter in life if we expect to influence younger skiers.  “Later in life” triggers little emotionally or intellectually amongst the age group that would benefit from really working those fundamental skills.  Enjoyment of here and now holds a stronger grip over that of future promise…and in fact…a brain rule base upon the neural wiring of our younger skiers.  Therefore, teaching techniques that bring the fundamentals forward to mind while demonstrating immediate payoff – will help to stick the landing – so to speak ;)

It's not hard... When young guys see a 50 year old rip, they notice. I'm sure they have huge respect for a guy like Eric Pehota. The kids at the top know. Andy Mahrer's buddies I'd guess know darn well Andy's pop still kills it. They also notice people like Jon Olsson who's talented enough to be at the top of both slope style and have FIS race points that may well qualify him for the Swedish Sochi Olympic team... for racing, not free style events. Now that's something. The sport changes. Young free ride and park guys/gals are getting more formal coaching as the freeride/freestyle arts mature. There are just a ton of really talented park kids these days and sponsorships per participant are not large. The edge is coaching which will make them better, more competitive. A mentor can also help them become a better individual 'brand'. If it all sounds crass, I don't think it's one bit different than racing. Lindsey is a personality and brand. Mikaela is quickly becoming one. Ted's there as well.

I'd let Lindsey Vonn think she could catch me. :D

Sound.  I'll incorporate and gauge during some lift conversations this season to see if resonates.  I'll report back my findings for you ;)
