Some austrians may disagree :) Look at 2:20 if it does not auto start from there. Video is posted Dec-8-2015 :cool

The Austrians at Boyne always called that shortswing.

A guy that was really good could drive themselves up the hill doing it.

Very useful in tight quarters.

I never see anyone doing this drill anymore in this carving world but when it is steep and narrow this works.

Same edging skills needed in todays carving. Now we call then tipping movements. And our skis run forward and not sideways. Great skier BTW, I need to try those drills.

Also, very useful when you are faced with a cornice!

Skiing is about moving. The OP asked the question in 2008, I believe. i brought it up to take MY skiing to another level and to use that knowledge to instruct / coach my students through what may otherwise be year and tears.

There are a million ways to turn... skills = win.
