yaaaa, but realy the google is not very supportive of psia: stem Christie
, parallel Christie
and wedeln turns these are the base turns
nobody realy discus the differences and technical approach to how to teach them
what about :base christie, "slow-down" christie, acceleration christie, jet christie etc ???
(those words are dirrectly translated from german program)
anybody can realy describe the differences
BTW: I've seen MANY people holding PSIA certification having problems on difficult terrain.....
but hopefyuly the ones who are present here, can explain the THEORY of skiing and answer my Qs?????
