It's all a bunch of little nuances you're going to be adding to your skiing as you progress.
Actually this was one of our better days for snow as far as the conditions we are expected to ski in the exam.. Day one was the same snow, some deeper some more cutup, Very windy and close to zero vis. We didn't do any video day one because the Vis and weather was so bad. Unfortunatly we don't get conditions like this all the time to practice on but if the opportunity arises, You can bet I'll be out there practicing. (provided I'm not "working")
The reference video guy is one of the coaches from ESA in 2004, Snowbird.. Weems...
Like I said earlier, someone I would aspire to ski like.
I'll keep at it!
