I had to go and dig this old thread out to thank all Bears who posted here.
This thread has been the ground upon which I've decided to start skiing switch.
It all started with a new, shorter, pair of ski in November. These are All Mountain ski with a shy beginning of twin tip (semi-twin tip?) and a rounded up tail. Nothing extreme, but that has been enough to convince me try and play.
Of course my attempts have been quite hilarious.
I can ski switch, very briefly and on really flat terrain but I've done it.
One thing I've noticed is that I'm more comfortable looking over the same shoulder instead of swinging it ...
In my case, my left shoulder (as I'm more comfortable, when skiing one legged, skiing on my left leg - don't ask me to ski on my right one. BTW, I'm left-handed, totally: dominant eye, arm and leg, all left)
If I swing my head from one shoulder to the other, sooner or later I enter in a rotation...probably because the head swing causes the shoulders to move too much and consequently.
Another thing is that I tend to put more weight on my left leg, so sometimes the left ski describes an arc, while the right one limps behind. In the end my tips opens up and have one ski, as said the left, "turning", while the other is dragging, and form up an inverted wedge...
Possibly the two things are related, possibly not.
More work to do, but you guys, and the video posted here, made me decide to give it a go.
