I'm pretty glad I found a page like this. I am a die hard skier and I started around 4 years ago and took it seriously 2 years ago when I worked as an instructor for little kids. I decided that I really wanted to take my skiing much further and went ahead and joined my local mountain's race team. My skiing improved tremendously and I had a lot of fun but I really want to be competitive. I'm entering my second year and so far but I have been plagued by an issue which has really hurt me especially in slalom and even when I am doing moguls on my free time.
I am having trouble carving my uphill ski and creating angulation. I can carve when my uphill ski at a great enough speed but I can't really do it at slower speeds and I am having trouble carving small radius turns such as slalom turns without skidding.
Also, when I attempt a one legged skiing drill, I am having trouble even tilting my skis uphill... (like if i was using my right ski, I can't turn right) I'm not sure if I am attempting to tilt my skis incorrectly. It can't even get my skis to turn right a little bit using my edges.
Any tips or advice would be very appreciated! This is one of my biggest goals this season.
