It's less than 5 days until I get to go on my first real ski trip this year so I'm looking at some videos for inspiration on what to practice.
In the "Cream of skiing skills" video below I'm wondering whether the skier that starts at 1:29 (I think it is JF Beaulieu) are doing "pure carved" turns or if they might in fact be "brushed" or "skidded" in the beginning of the turn? I don't know the exact terminology but hopefully you can get a sense of what I mean. The turn radius seem really tight and I'm wondering how he does that.
The reason I ask is that they look like a lot of fun and I aspire to some day be able to do something like those turns.
Thanks in advance for any help!
