Lose weight.

I started to re-learn rotation last season, and will explore that a bit more....

Maybe act a little less like my age....and maybe ski a little more "TGR like".

Thanks for the tip Kneale. The words aren't helping my mind right now, but we'll see how it works on snow. My biggest problem however, is that once I solve one single thing, another thing pops up. In general, when I'm asked to fix something I get it done within a day or two on snow. It's funny because I've been doing exercises for upper body / lower body separation for golf and have no problem with this in the bumps. But when I got the comment, I could feel the separation problem even going down the bunny slope (e.g. with poles hooked up horizontally across my waist). Given that it was only a few years ago that I had too much counter, I feel that 90% of my efforts need to be focused above the neck.

The thing about the separation in golf is that it's always in one direction (you either swing leftie or you swing rightie).

For me the trick in upper/lower separation relates to aiming the pelvis. If I work on getting the move I want through relaxation first, I don't lose it when I try to add tensioning.

Two related concepts--I need to improve short turns and bumps. I am dead when the bumps get close, icey and craggy; wait that's all the time in Maine...No wonder I can't ski bumps to save my life.
