Videos Available?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I am in search of video of high level skiing. I preferably would like this skiing to NOT be in a race course, but lend itself to race-type turns... or at least high angle carved turns. I have no desire to critque them, I just want to see them (for myself). It would be really great if the video was of skiers on Epic, but it is not a necessary criteria. I have done a searh and looked through nearly all of our recent "video" and "photo" threads, but I haven't yet found what I am looking for. I'll keep searching, but if someone can point me in the right direction or provide videos/pictures that would be much appreciated.

If you've not seen it, Elan's website has a Magfire video with their skiers laying trenches off the race course. May not be quite what you have in mind, but worth a peek --

Those were okay, but I'd rather see something that focuses on skiing, and not the skis. It is hard to see technique in that vidoe... although I was amused byt he "floatation" section in which all of the skiers were waist deep in powder... they were "floating" great : . I can't believe that no one knows where to find this stuff, or has any video of themselves.

Greg, they're not available for free on line, you have to purchase them, but the Canadian Coaches Association race training videos have a ton of free skiing by top WC guys. They're excellent. No, I don't know the link off the top of my head.

If they didn't get lost in a software crash, there should be some video of good skiing posted by Nolo and Archmeister in the archives.

I'm not looking for professionals necessarily. Just video in general. I have access to plenty of professional videos. I'm more looking toward "home video" type stuff.

Greg,

Credit here to our Italian friend "nobody" from a recent thread

www.amsao.it

I believe you will find the high level and freestyle segments very interesting.

I am personally hitting the hill on my first pair of super short ski's (168 Volkl Allstars) this winter and I am digesting these visuals for immediate application. These videos remind me of the excellent mid 80's PSIA centerline video as ski'd by Ellen Post Foster, Jerry Warren and others, only updated to new school technology. This was exactly what I was seeking. I like it simple. I am ex PSIA and have no problems applying what I see on video to the hill. I am a visual learner. Sounds like you are the same.

Again Nobody is the man here.

Enjoy as I did.

This is solid gold stuff IMO.

I would like to see more of these videos, too. I love to learn by observation. Don't get to see many really good skiers on small NY mountain like Belleayre where I usually ski (except when my high school alma mater ski team is training there).

This is what gave "wedge" a bad name! Look at the Bronze wedge turns; great visual on how not to.

oops, I didn't look at the low end stuff, my demo days are over, not teaching anymore....yep those are not pretty The advanced stuff is good tho. Real good.

Italians go direct to parallel skiing anyway right?

Argento Avanzato

I put this in my educational file for visual reference. Go to the level above and visualize from the hips down, upper body is very good except maybe he good relaxe a little, and see how he starts, shapes, and completes the turn. This and the next are good "Movement Analysis" videos.

I agree John, I think those visuals are fabulous...esp for a guy just this week about to jump on first super short carver(168 Allstar) those are some sweet turns on very short ski's. Just what I have been looking for This is the best thing I have found yet on epic...huge thanks for about the 10th time: to nobody.....you can really see the difference between the gold and the gold advanced levels...the advanced clearly shows both ski's weighted and railing the turns vs the gold where you can see only the outside ski primarily bent. It is so clear it is amazing. I hope to migrate from the gold to the gold advanced quickly. I am a nearly 100% outside ski dominant skier....I will be studying these movement patterns in detail. There are years of very high level ski lessons worth of material in these visuals. Amazing to see that the Italians are so free to share. The PSIA ATS and Centerline videos made avail to me via PSIA well very helpful to me in the 80's and 90's. I expect this material will be equally so. Any current PSIA members willing to share similar free new school specific material?

Agree on those wedge equiv PSIA level 3 demos....not good...or at least a lot different from what I learned at PSIA.

Hear you go Greg.

Some people might call this a turkey, but I think it's some damn fine skiing. Please don't watch this on a full stomach.

Awesome video!

Found some Japanese ski videos here: http://www.manabu.ne.jp/nakajima/ski/video.htm. Didn't get a chance to look through many of them yet, but the third purple-highlighted video (6.8mb) has some decent slow-motion gs carving turns once you get past about 30 seconds of short-radius turns.

CSIA Videos

There is a lot of gate running, but also a lot of freeskiing, drills and tech talk on the Canadian Ski Instructor's Association's "World ..." series. Many of the world's best skiers will definitely show you how to lay it down. It's the best $30 you'll ever spend. The videos are produced annually, and date back to 1998. Currently CSIA only has last year's World 2005 on VHS and this year's World 2006 on DVD. :
