I ski at the very least 4 times a week. I go with my HS team and run gates about 4 hours a day, Monday through Thursday. I usually get a chance to go up on Saturday to someplace close by, like Wachusett, and ski the day there. I know that practice makes perfect, but is there anything else I can do to improve my skill? I try to watch as much racing on TV as possible, try to run as many gates as time allows, and get on snow any time I can, but I still feel like there is more I can do. For any other racers or just casual skiers, what have you done, or do you do, to help improve your skills? What have you found most and least effective? I know lessons are good but at around $65 per/hr with the best I can find being a Level I, I won't be able to afford them for long. Any comments are welcomed.
