Interesting situation here. 'On a course' I assume you're racing. Free skiing I guess you mean you're on the mountain having fun. You might need two different settings, maybe not. Just for giggles, send me yuor height, weight, age, I,II, or III skier, and boot sole length. Let me check the settings for ya... just for firstname.lastname@example.org
In racing you're going 'balls to the wall', off course you're messing around like the rest of us. For racing you are a III skier most likely. When you're not racing your basically skiing II skier because you are not going 100% speed, etc., therefore a lower setting, otherwise they might not release when they are supposed to when off course. On course you might need to go higher. Send your spces. It gives me good practice off season anyhow!
