Nice video. Those were pretty much the same maneuvers that Mindy and I used. We had a great, tight 360 that was fabulous. That said, I never carried Mindy around on top of me like you saw in Suzy's video. Unfortunately, we didn't have a "production" company to get it down on video. You should have seen the size of those cameras then.
I skied with her once when she stopped in at Snowmass "on her way to Vail to ski with President Ford". Then again, that was Suzy for ya. You should have her that gal talk.....................whew! Then again, that's Aspen for ya.
Its a shame ballet just faded away for all the reasons we have come to know. I'm so greateful to be able to still do many of the tricks I learned both in Michigan and during my time in Aspen. Let me tell you, learning and doing them on 160s was a lot easier than my k2 205 Comps! I replaced my broken Hart 150s with a pair of k2 244 153cm retro skis two seasons ago and they work pretty good for ballet. but I'm still trying to hunt down a pair of 140s. I always keep looking and maybe I'll get lucky this year.
Thanks again for sharing the video. Keep'em coming!
