Hi guys, Im Reilly, have a look and give me some feedback... I always like new things to think about..
On the groomer, effectively, all your edge / pressure are in the 2nd half of the turn, which is why you bounce out of your turns.
In the gates, once you get rolling, you get ejected when you release your edges for the new ones. You're fast, but consistency has been a problem. Always getting thrown.
On groomed snow without gates, you're good for 6-8-10 turns max, before your skis eject out from under and you're into the fall line before you find the outside ski. 6-8 more, ejection. And so on.
Icy snow is hard for you to manage deliberate, consistent, linked turns without a ski or skis getting pitched in the air.
Very athletic. You've got some good drive through the boots. Nice edge awareness. I'm not a fan of your overload prior to edge release.
Keep your hips lower to the snow through your edge switch. This will promote higher edge angles prior to fall line entry and better load management after fall line exit.
