Links to some of Epic's best ski technique threads.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
There are some amazing threads on epic. We should find them and link to them. Things like Bob Barnes's X move thread and foot squirt and many others.

Who's first?

I don't know if this applies, and haven't been around that long.... but I liked this one, as it applied, and applies, to my skiing :

And there has to be some x-move or slow-line-fast thread that's a keeper.... but it could be that those items are just all over the place without a specific good summary thread.

I highly recommend people read the below thread, and post in it too.  Unless these things become articles someday, the best way to get them back on people's radar is to bump them right?

 

Too much great stuff over the years to let it die off!

Great thread and near the beginning Bob Barnes has a post with links to a bunch of other great threads.  Now we're cooking.

What thread starter posts have the most likes? You won't find a better indication. You prob also won't find a worse indication than solitary opinions. Top 10?

Not necessarily because "likes" don't start until relatively recently.  My impression is that some of the best Ski Instruction threads pre-date the ability to give a Thumbs Up.

While that may be true, everything has to start somewhere and a "best of" is a common feature to sites like this. Because the threads are too much to search through and solitary opinions being irrelevant to a large portion of readers, a best of consensus, would mitigate those issues effectively. While only one person choosing the best threads is an appreciable attempt, one man's treasure ....
