More separation. Banking can be fun in powder. Otherwise not so much. Fabulous conditions.

Carry on,

Them are fighting words!   That was 12" new at highlands.  @scadvice maybe had a little bit more new snow, but I doubt it was a whole lot more?

 

That image was taken from my one and only video edit from last year, so sorry to everyone who has seen me post this before :)

 

 

 

My banked turn is at 2:05 when my buddy and I converged on the same patch of untracked snow.   I never saw him, but he hollered out.  I guess that was my instinctual evasive maneuver :dunno

 

I think that's a pretty good example of how you really can't get much from a single snapshot in time.   I doubt @scadvice was making many banked turns.  I also bet the one in the picture of was for good reason... probably trying to hit that patch of untracked ahead.

Oh, yeah... I actually made a slow-mo edit of my banked turn sequence so I could prove to my buddy he was at fault :rolleyes

 

 

I, of course, am opening myself up to any suggestions on how to improved my banked turns.  :duck:

"I, of course, am opening myself up to any suggestions on how to improved my banked turns."

 

And…you just opened me up for chastisement in my skier analysis and lesson recommendation. I don't do this stuff anymore! :rolleyes

 

 I think you are A framing a little during your bank, the inside ski appears to be over weighted (maybe a recovery move) causing that foot to be flat effecting your forward and aft movement and this is also causing you to ride to much on the tails. You are relying a lot on your strength, to make recovery moves.

 

Lesson: Work on a little more inside leg steering and that same leg edging sooner in the turn ( Remember with the inside knee during the turn we generally want it to push out and up the hill. This should force you to have to get forward and over your skies more to make it easier to have control during the turn and prevent struggling with a late transition. That also should help 'you' to lead the skies not 'them' leading you. Try standing a little taller too. Ski softer, taller and more flexible. 

 

Now I'm going to duck!  :duck:

OK, got it.  I'm A framing, in the back seat, and turning defensively rather than offensively.   Thanks, that gives me something to work on... or, maybe I'll just, yet again, hack my way though as much pow pow as I can find this year. :D

 

More importantly, to Mike's question... how much new was reported on the day of your infamous banked turn?   Can you top the 12 inches reported at Highlands the day of mine?

Nothing wrong with hacking your way...Pow is not to be wasted!  :D 

 

At the last of the season I was being coached on race turns... I swear the guy was Robin Williams with his Scottish accent...
