So I typically get up to 10 days a year in. Absolutely love skiing, pushing myself, taking on challenging terrain.
Never really took lessons, just learned by following my pops around.
I would like to refine my technique a bit so I can become smoother and advanced to even tougher terrain.
I put together all the clips of me skiing from my last two ski trips from this year.
The first, I'm wearing a black jacket/green pants, was in Utah at Alta and Snowbird in January.
The second, I'm wearing a blue jacket/green pants, was in Steamboat in the beginning of February.
I was lucky enough to take a 3 hour lesson with a level 3 instructor at Alta one of the days. We focused on initiating the turn from tipping me femurs back towards the hill as well as a stronger core to remain stable in tough to see and bumpy terrain. There is no video os my skiing in Utah after that lesson.
All the video in steamboat is from after that lesson, in which I tried to keep that turn initiation thought in mind, and I also got a smaller pair of boots. I was in a 27.5 in the Utah clips and exchanged them at my local shop for 26.5. I think this made a huge difference in my control.
Video clips of Steamboat start at the 4 minute mark.
Sorry for the crappy video quality, our camera stinks.
Any tips greatly appreciated as I'm always looking to improve on every turn on every run!
