OK maybe I'm exxaggerating a little, and apologies to Colorado and thanks for the use of the pic you so bravely posted.

Your funny Old Goat, are you skiing at Mt. Bachelor? We are going to be there this year sometime, I got the 3 days for $109 deal.


When I first started racing and saw the videos I realized that I was skiing the course like I was free skiing, as that is what I had done for my whole life up until then. With couching from some pro race couches and good racers I was lucky to ski with I learned to do race turns and my position and time improved quite a bit.

Each ski discipline has it's own methods and the difference between race skis and powder skis are quite a bit; in the old days before shaped and fat skis we mostly skied on GS skis out West and I skied on SL back East.

One has to take into account that the way you ski racing, in moguls, recreational, and powder are a bit different, but they all use the same basic dynamics.

How about if we call it inside knee? I do agree skis do move back and forth, and the tipping part is right on, there is obviously a transition and it is not static. I think this is more a issue of language.

A-frame was that a 70’s thing, where you put your knee on the un-weighted knee and made an A? That would leave one ski flat and not on edge if I remember right, not what we do today. I did not write my post very well sorry. Lets say you use your feet, ankles and knees with your hip floating above them, still not the best but better.
When I was a kid people would say “if there is no light between your legs your good”, so much has changed.
