NY Times Digital Article: Ted Ligety Skiing Technique

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

NY Times did a great job with this digital article that uses text and videos to briefly explain Ted Ligety's skiing technique, and how he's able to ski so much faster than others on the new regulation FIS skis.

Definitely worth a few minutes of your time to watch - if for no other reason than to watch Ted in super slow motion as he creates such huge angles.

It's exceptionally well done.  I've watched it several times.

After years of hearing non-racers describe how racers ski-we finally get something from "the horses mouth" (and quite a horse , at that). And I must say the silence here is deafening. Hmmmmm...let's see who has been teaching this style of skiing for years?:duel:

I dunno? You? 

I only started teaching weighting the new outside ski early in the transition quite recently, even though a trainer taught it to me 4 or 5 years ago.
