Great to see that so many of you here like this thread and topic. Very good posts by all of you, thanks.

I have been working on my two sons, 5 and 9, arms forward thing for a month now. The 9 year old started using ski poles at 7y but my 5y old is allredy using ski poles because he is in a coaching group of much older kids. Its also easier to put the arms forward if you have ski poles. Both are doing well and have improved a lot and the arms forward seems to help a big time. Arms forward and angulation, thats the secret to great skiing.

The 5y old beat me in our local SL competition on wednesday. The time compesation gave him runs of 21 sec while mine were 24 . I cannot be really mad can I ?
