Since no one replies I was wondering if you actually can see the video or is it being blocked in your country?

Arria, I can see the video. Nice work. Lots of things I pick up on. For example what happens to your pant if you ski SL gates not using shin protectors. And how you are using your SL skis and ski poles offpist. Thats great, more powder to the SL people.

We can see it, Airria.  Nicely done video, just not much there to comment on from a coaching perspective.  Probably why so much silence.

tdk says the same thing, while I'm typing, but in a more humorous way.  biggrin.gif

Rick, did you see the small kid wedging arround the ski poles I think it was. Using rotary..... its the small things in life that makes it all worth while. At least from an aged ski instructor and tech nuts perspective smile.gif

Well one can say 'it has been a while'.

 

But here is another video:
 

 

 

I decided to go crazy on new skis this season. I turned in my Atomic and got a Blossom Follow Me Plus. Well you probably don't know that brand but the Follow Me Plus seems to be made by Giorgio Rocca. And I can tell, this ski is something special! Handmade Italian sandwich... that sounds delicious, doesn't it?

    Your skiing has improved a lot from your first vids. Your getting your skis out from under you more, and it shows--more angulation for one. Still noticing a crossblock movement (reaching for the sl pole), doing this is rotating your shoulders slightly (seriously, not much) which in turn is making you weight your inside ski more than you should. You can see evidence of this at 7 seconds (pause it)...your inside and outside ski are divergent (taking different paths) This usually indicates the outside doesnt have enough of your weight AND your inside has too much. Be more patient, dont reach and you will better be able to maintain upper/lower body separation.

Thank you for the feedback! I will try to work on the things you pointed out!

Good skiing. 

 

I agree with Zenny about the weighting. To keep your weight on the outside leg, it is good if the upper body is countered. With

 

your cross blocking, your upper body does not seem countered, i.e. the shoulder above the inside ski is sometimes back from the shoulder over the outside ski. This is what may be weighting your inside ski. Tough to maintain the countered position in slalom but good to work on. Here is Ted Ligety demonstrating. A drill I like in practice is to kind of clap my hands together at each gate to make sure my shoulders are in good position.

You have a lot of extension in your releases. It isn't quite a push-off but it's close. I would work on flexing through the transitions.

it has been a long time since I've posted here, but this is my latest update. I don't know if people are interested but this week we have decided to start doing business and entrepreneur in skiing. If people are interested in following our story, I can do a thread with a diary about all the struggles and achievements we come across.

Another video :) Looking forward to your commentary

post #104 of 106

Airria, not much to comment. Great skiing. Looks like its indoor. Yes, please make a thread with your story. Maybe the racing forum would be a better place since this is all about ski racing.

Airria - went and looked at the start of the thread and now I remember who you are. You are that guy from Trysil. Renting that whole ski area for yourself. Well come back. Wow, you have made some pretty awesome progression. I'm a bit shocked actually. Now you look like a true racer. Back in 2008 it was more of a true amateur if I may say so. Yes, we are deffinetly interested in hearing your story Thumbs Up.

   Airria, your skiing keeps improving!!! I will say one short thing--don't "punch" the poles, as in, don't reach for them with your blocking arm so much. Wait until you are closer and allow gate clear to happen rather than trying to rush it...your shin guards should do most of the contact anyway. Instead, work on moving your line up just a smidgen higher so that you are "done" with your turn when you encounter the gate. Right now you are just a smidgen too low--start working on this on the very first turn of the course and carry it all the way down.

 

  Hope this makes sense :)
