I stood in a book store at Stowe last week and got my first good look at PMTS. I'll say only that I have been trying to eliminate that move for 2 seasons now---with mixed results.
John M. Early this season one of the ski mags did an article bringing western and eastern skiers together to ski both parts of the country. The theory was just as you described, the eastern skiers would kick butt in the east and hold their own in the west. Turned out not to be the case. Of course these were pretty damn fine skiers.
Taking MrT's lead, lets get into something less controversial!
