I've been trying desperately to ski bumps since I got back into skiing last year. However, every time I get in the bumps, I go back seat and the ski tips go in the air... you know the rest of that story. Well, today I got in the bumps and started ripping. I was ripping short turns and in control the entire time. Before I realized, I was 1/2 way down the trail. I couldn't believe it!!!
Now, the reason for the improvement is b/c I got the Harald Harb skiing videos earlier this year and started applying the techniques. About 2 weeks ago, another light bulb went on and I learned how to initiate a turn on my little toe uphill ski. That made a HUGE difference for snapping off quick and short radius parallel turns. Today, I was ripping short radius turns through the bumps. I was able to apply what I learned and got the result I've been hoping for for a LONG time. What a great feeling!!!
Now, I'm not going to pretend I'm suddenly some incredible bump skier but now, I'm a passable bump skier, which is a HUGE improvement over what I was previously skiing at. Now I'm going to start really searching out the bump runs wherever I go!
