. Although this is under the guise of course prep for certification, it's also educational and entertaining for everyone. There are some good bump clips in the level 4 video and I see some of my favorite wacko exercises demonstrated in the "fun" clip.
. Ive been watching it some and its well made with close to earth skiing, both basic and advanced.
Let me open the discussion by asking you guys a Q. If you look at level 1 in the beginning of the video the parallel turns there are made by standing up tall at the transition and then by sinking down all the way through the turn. This pattern is present in their wedging as well as in their carving and bumps. Is this for demo purpose only or is this the way the Canadians teach, unweighting the skis by raising themselves up just before the transition? To have a strong up and down moovement going all the time.
