Is Skiing that Technical
I agree with almost all the posts, expecially Lars "bring on the beginner forum" and Skier 101's comments on ski Jargon being confusing to new people on Epic. Read waist steering post if you want to be confused. However I will admit that Slider showed me waist steering in about 2 mins on the hill and I understood.
One Observation. I have two particular friends sho clinic all the time when they aren't teaching. Their skiing has regressed. They no longer ski for fun, enjoyment, speed, thrill, laughts or smiles. they watch their technique and analyze everthing and I mean everything. Their skiing has definitely gone backward. Sometimes we can over analyze and ruin the end result. Yes improvement is desirable but not at the expense of your enjoyment of the sport. Eventual Burnout is the result.
My wife calls me a ski addict, yes I'm a 1% but my smile days are many.
