And this from our own Newfydog:
I should start Newfy's guide to bad skiing:

---It is fun to sit back and let them jet out

--Weighting both skis prevents the outside leg from wearing out too soon.

--When all else fails, fling the upper body around

And so on.

Smooth Johnson, Master of the Carve:

"Groupies. That's what I'm talking about. First you get good. Then you get great. Then you get groupies"

"At my age I tend to stay in the turns a little longer, and in the john a little longer, too"

"Retire? Hell. If Reagan can still run this country, I can sure as hell still be Master of the Carve"

I've got the "pull my finger" poster, autographed by Smooth himself. Still got his Olin Sierras too.

post #72 of 73
Heard in various instructor clinics:

"You like what you're doing or you want to try skiing?"

"Does that feel good, 'cause it sure hurts to watch."

"Those turns make my eyes bleed."

So much for touchy-feely coaching.
