I think I'm on Day 5 or so not counting early season skins.
1 - First day I am thinking about making sure that I am moving from outside ski to outside ski. If I don't think about that first thing in the season I tend to feel tippy side to side.
2 - upper body lower body separation. Gotta remember to do this too. Skiing on crud the other day definitely reminded me. Skiing too square to the skis really doesn't work in the crud. Gonna have to go see the Rolfer soon as I am feeling a little bit bound up on the left side. Yesterday I was noticing how if I allow some foot-squirt it's easier to keep my legs turning under my hips.
3 - Stance width. Lock this in early. Lots of blue groomer runs thinking about this. Sometimes locked in a carve sometimes doing pivot slips.
4 - Today I started thinking about a little more bend in the back just lowering things down a little more than I normally do. I feel like I have access t o more range of motion from here. I want to get this locked in early in the season too.
Thinking about the basics now can really pay off later if you lock it in early.
What are you guys working on?
