I have not skiied since 1990...until today. Skis are SX11s in 180, and I have a few questions. It seems the only way I can get them to turn with my present technique (likely very rusty) is to completely unweight the inside ski and put all of my weight on the outside skis edge, I was able to make some pretty good turns today, to the point where I could be going back uphill, but something is not right, whereas I used to carve for fun...it feels like I HAVE to to prevent them from gettiing away from me, as soon as I start hitting bumps at speed, the skis get all bent out of shape and toss me on my butt I busted 3 good times today...forgot how much fun falling was..yay. One thing is the greens here almost correlate to the bluesd I am used ot back east. Any advice for getting confidence in the bumps at speed..i see tons of other people basically straightlining most of the slopes effortlessy where I am just struggling to keep my friggin speed in check. I have no problems turning or stopping. Don't worry, I use the term "carve" loosely..I have no illisuons that I careve..99.9 percent of my turns seem to be skidding.
