How am I suppose to analyze the video when I can't see anything below the skiers waist.

How did you get the camera guy to not ski while the rest of you were eating all those freshies?
But seriously, I loved the way it wasn't a "demo", but just having alot of fun.

I selflessy volunteered to ski down first in order to film the others (I'm the one in red)

Upon close scrutiny, it is my opinion that you have an equipment issue, causing you to have too much flotation, and resulting in aberrantly excessive fun. I suggest getting on a pair of stiff, very short slalom skis, preferably 154cm or shorter, and try the run again. Snowblades might even be better. And do report back on your progress.

Very good skiing and filming. What kind of camera did you use and what kind of editing program on the computer?

Ah, Guys, ahh, what's it like? Please, please, tell me. I'm a poor eastern boy who has never, ever, ever, been in snow like that.

I think I am the only person who hates powder left in this forum..ha!

CM, it looked like you were rather comfortable in snow that deep (saying you were the one in the red), and you were skiing pretty well. I noticed the guy in the green (I think) seemed to be leaning back a bit causing a little bit of ineffective movements and a little less control, maybe a focus on trying to keep a 50/50 stance would make a big difference (won't feel like you have to lean back to float). Also, about 1:20 into the clip it looked like the guy in the green might be using excessive upper body rotary movements to facilitate the turns (and it looked like the pole touches might have been a little anticipatory too). However, the most important thing is it looked like you guys were having a blast, so screw what I'm saying and continue to have fun.

A question from the east: What is that strange fluffy white stuff all over your ski run?

You mean he needs to give those guys better training?

Get to work CM - you need to take them out in snow like that all the time... I'm sure you are capable of fixing those problems in their skiing with work....

Unfortunately this also points out the mistake we made in leaving after 9 days of that to spend the first week of January in Steamboat.

Let me know if you're in Solitude over the holiday next year!

Si - he is an australian examiner so you probably would not like his teaching

he works at Park City I think - ant would know for sure & Mt Buller in Oz

This is one of the people I really want to get lessons with - had them organised one year but I got sick & could not go..... maybe next winter I will manage at least 1

Yeah, but he doesn't ski like one so it's OK.

That's right - most of the Australian examiners ski better than me.

Hi CM,

Not trying to measure here, just show appreciation for people who know how to use their abilities to enjoy themselves. You and your friends certainly fit that bill. The comment about not skiing like an instructor was totally in jest.

Oh & Si.... one of my beloved australian/austrian staatlich guys was CM's trainer for levels 1 & 2 I think?

but of course Franno skis like a robot & never has fun doesn't he CM?

Disski, your snide remarks misrepresent a point of view I offered in a previous thread. Perhaps we could stop the hijack and not detract from what began as a great thread.

The best part of that skiing was all of the hoots, hollers and laughter.

Si,
