Hello, I'm new to this site. I have just gotten back into skiing after about 15yrs off. I rented skis and felt real good about retaining what skills I had in the past. I would probably categorize myself as an advanced skier. I bought the Blizzard Magnum 7.7 167cm(I think) my boots are the Tecnica Demon 110's. I am 5'7" and weigh 190lbs (I know, I know that is too heavy for my height!!) I'm skiing in Northern Michigan so I'm on hills rather than mountains. I can handle the steepest that there is in Northern MI.
The problem that I am having is when I'm on the steep hills and get more aggressive my downhill ski really starts to slide, bounce, chatter (not sure what the proper terminology is)
I started skiing at age 8, so I grew up skiing, As an adult I never thought about how to ski, I just skied. Now I'm driving myself nuts thinking about everything from can I handle these new skis, is there a different technique from the long skinny skis that I have always skied on, how much weight should be on each ski during a turn, am I leaning far enough forward, am I getting enough edge onto the hill, did I buy the wrong equipment......
Any help is very much appreciated.
