I'm not a big fan of the speed thing so I tend to turn alot. Not everyones thing but works for me.

I'm lacking stance, style, hip angulation and lift line etiquette.

In other words, I'm a serious gaper.

Here's a couple of photo's of my style.

It's a new move in World Cup for left turns on races courses that spiral downward in counter clockwise fashion.

No doubt.

When I'm not tired, I'm usually pretty good, a fairly standard technical skier who tends to brake overly much on my turns (Z- instead of S-turns, sometimes). Oh, I like to tailgun as well - pow-pow-pow!

When I'm tired, I'm slopper than a drunken skunk out on a 2am bender.

Hey, I just thought of this. When my non-skiing friends find out what a ski nut I am they always ask if I'm really good. I tell them that a lot of the people that see me ski think I am really good but the ones that are really good see that I have a lot to learn.

That is better, but you still look kinda angry.

I noticed that to...I did know the camera was there. So I was really thinking about what I was doing. As well as thinking, "not the time to explode" LOL.

Okemo's main chair lift is just out of the photo to the left.

I always ski with the angry face...thats why I dont get the smiling face people in the ads. My GF says I have a mean face usually anyway. Once I finish a run, then I might smile.

Max, of course you know I'm teasing. The pics you've posted look like good skiing to me. As far as style, they seem to indicate a disciplined, precise type of skiing. Nothing wrong with that. Work on the lip angulation if you want to get pictures of you published. Toothy grin is the only thing keeping that shot from the front of Okemo's brochure.

Richie, some people enjoy skiing. I don't, and I never smile when I ski. Skiing hurts my feet and I only do it because I'm good at it. I don't enjoy skiing and feel no reason to pretend I'm having fun when I'm doing it.

So here's my synopsis with apologies to Toby Keith: I ain't as good as I once was, but I'm as good once, as I ever was.


Photo snapped by BWPA at the Bookends in Mineral Basin at the 'bird on April 26...yes, that's April 26 snow!

also had my skiing described as 'tight & compact'.

I'm proud to say I've never heard my skiing described as tight and compact.

Better your skiing be described by others as tight then other things.
post #109 of 110
Haha, not sure this morning why I was proud of that last night. I don't jump off stuff, so me skiing tight and compact brought a funny image to my mind.

I would like to use a tighter, more compact telemark stance than what I usually do. The word poodle has been used in description of my style.
