This is a lot of information, but not too much. :)


My skiing improved when (among other things) I began paying attention to where pressure was happening in my feet, mainly at the turn apex, and mainly in the downhill foot. This article gives me more to think about.  Thanks for posting it!

I thought it had value. You can really "feel" that pressure when it's right.

I read that, but it makes not much sense to me.  I guess one would need to have a degree in physics to understand any of it.


I do find that where I pressure my foot in the boot makes a difference and that's all I know.  For me it's not pressure on the boot cuff or tongue off the boot but where the bottom of the foot is pressured.


If it feels it.


Then again I don't know Jack from Jill.

Where in the turn is "first?"  Yes, a bit of pressure at the end of the last turn, then move forward to engage the tips to begin the next turn.  Again, at what point do they consider first in the turn?


"...the pressure differential drives rotation and how this is the engine of the outside ski."  Really?  Not putting the ski on edge and letting the shovel pull the ski around?

I don't either anymore ;)

Maybe we all need pressure sensing footbeds wired to a HOD in our goggles so we can fine tune the pressure differential.


Seems like an extremely complicated way to say something very simple.

Does shutup and ski seem appropriate.

I thought about this today as I skied.  It's seems that's about exactly the pressure points I was applying when the turns were sweet.

When you feel know.
