Perfect. You have the makings of a nega-coach.

I suspect Bud is one of those guys who cracks a smile when he skis. I believe proper ski technique requires clenched cheeks. Both sets of 'em.

Gotta have that serious pucker factor to facilitate learning.

Keep the vertical smile pointed uphill!

And, some miscellaneous thoughts:

Good grief!! It's not even summer yet! Are we that bored already??

I think another thread has suggested that certain European schools have already mastered Nega-Coaching...

I know, even without benefit of Nega-Coaching, that my skiing sucks on all levels! So there so too!

Just to school y'all on nega-coaching, a good nega-coach would say,
1. No. We're not bored. How can we be bored when we're watching CGeib violate all the laws of physics in Highlands Bowl!
2. Your skiing has no levels. How could it suck on them?

This, of course, is why I suck as a nega-coach.

Ha, see there, I didn't even have to pay for the premium service option!

I knew you'd come to understand the need for price matching for this new service to work, Weems

No-levels, eh. That's great, you've even picked up on the need to be proactive and offer unsolicited nega-coaching to the unsuspecting - you are a much quicker study than I gave you credit for (even applying what you've learned across different threads!)

Now you just need to work on timing; I mean, you're only about a week behind Paul. I'm impressed with how fast you're catching up, though! I think there's real hope for your program

Hey and now we have yet another option.....

Kool aid or Chai ti, what is the drink of choice for PSIA?

If it's beer, I'm in.
post #39 of 55
Scotch. At least for some of us.
post #40 of 55
The drink of choice of PSIA is...WATER! (Can't be diluted no matter how much more water you add.)

Sigh...so true, so true.

Some days, my best skill is sliding on my face!
(Taste the high country.)

Nega-Coach: "You can't even do that, maggot!!"

"But how, oh Master, do I execute a pure carve on my nose?"

Drink more beer--the PSIA beverage of choice!

I keep warning people about that flakey New Age Nonsense. But do they listen? No!

Weems, I'd gladly give the fitness advice for your new program.

Don't forget that water is the major ingredient in beer.

Thanks to weems and other Epic information I've encountered, I am proud to say I now "suck at a higher level"

Thanks to all of you who've contributed

The guy with the gun would win. Coach could then say other guy sucks alot. Hey Weems, I dislocated my hip this year, ha ha I win.
post #52 of 55
Sorry to hear that, Dan. Gradually working your way through the body parts, season after season, huh?

I love this, and it's wonderful to note that I can become demotivated in a different way every day!


RINGEISEN!!! I didn't know you still had hips. Tell me you did it in a race!

Yes, SL on Lower Stauffy Think I'm gonna retire from serious racing I'm more interested in teaching than hard core training. GS and SG skis for sale, SL's already gone. Colors in the butt bruise were awsome. Does your book have pictures? I can count to 10 now using all my fingers and toes. If I get hurt again it will be my neck from both my wifes hands. Hi Martin hope all is well we miss you.
