NOOOOOOOO it's not like "skiing on your outside edge" ! with both feet on a single platform, I guarantee that both legs - not only the uphill one - work in the turn, and with such a pressure you can't have on 2 skis !! Bindings DIN CRANK to the MAX !!!
HOOOOLD your edge and the centrifugal force does the rest !!!
AND NOOO It's not like skiing with 2 skis and feet locked together !!! Cause you're on one single platform, and both legs works !!!
AND NO , keeping feet locked together IS NOT the highest possible art on two skis !! I kneeew that !
And YEE it's beginner mistake riding monoski with knees wide open, and it's horribly UGLY and inefficient - you can't turn - the knees should stay closed together!
THEN .. skiing groomed on da big stick ??? TAKE such board like White Knuckle CARVER, shaped ski 10 meters turn radius AND HOLD AN EDGE , hand on snow and carve as well as a snowboard or shaped skis !###$$*&%$^$% I prefder freeriding but we 've not yet got enought snow where I'm !... So I did downhill last day on groomed, the fastest and my legs did work, i yet feel them today!
AT LAST, snowboards are SLOW, we always give'm one MINUTE MORE on each race - Derby De La Meije , for instance . We better used to fight against Skiers !!! Last season, 400 skiers racing , and only 50 monoskiers racing, results = 1st was a skier with 5.45 mn, first monoskier was 12th with 6.00 mn , then after, telemarkers, then after, snowboarders far away, soooo ..!
and my English is sooo bad....
Anyways, anyone YET monoskiing ???????????????????????
