I've not skied since 1993/1994. I truly loved the sport but life got in the way (Marines, Marriage, College, Kids, Moving). I'm now at a point where I can both afford the sport again and my kids are old enough to participate with me.
What have I missed?
I'm lost on ski camber, sidecut, fattness, none of those things mean anything to me. I'm lost on technique as well. I was, I don't know, an average skier when I last skied? I could turn and stop, lol. I have no idea how to gauge my abilities back then and the intervening years have eroded my athletic ability and my physique so that I assume I would just list myself as a beginner again and start over.
I actually love to read about all aspects of my hobbies (skiing and skateboarding when I was younger and basketball too) so if anyone could sort of synthesize it down a bit for me with a gentle nudge in the right direction I would really appreciate it. I'm truly feeling overwhelmed with what this sport has become.
If anyone has the time or inclination, what do I need to research?
1. Industry wise?
2. Personality (Skiers) wise?
3. Technical wise?
4. Skiing technique?
