Skiing Italian-style with la grande neve

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, 

 

Interesting stuff from the Italians at la grande neve: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFF39956004DC22F5 

 

Check it out if you're looking for some good skiing ideas to think about. 

 

I find some of their ideas fit well with what I worked on last season: moving with the ski, and using the ski design to send you from arc to arc.It's a different and welcome perspective from some approaches which involve fighting the ski, twisting it, or trying to crush it into submission (edit: these guys actually do "twist" the ski, but probably not in the direction most of us would guess!). The fellow also is good at connecting his static diagrams with the video of high-end Italian skiers.

 

(edit 2: the more I watch the videos, the more I enjoy how they're skiing.)

Too funny, I'm pretty sure I posted the Check Point video in an Infinity Move thread somewhere last season.

Cantuna, it looks like you did smile.gif the "infinity move" is one part of the awesomeness in their skiing. Even their approach to this "move" is different when you watch the series.

I like how they visualize skiing as turning around giant cones, and I'm curious about the interesting idea of turning the ski opposite the direction of travel in order to create more pressure between edge and ice. Really interesting stuff.
