|I always pictured Bob Barnes to be older.
Hey, I resent that, I think. As I recall, he's only one month older than I am--or is it the other way around?
Stavros--you might want to call the PSIA-Rocky Mountain office (970-879-8335) and inquire about our latest Skiing Standards Video DVD, which has just been completed. It's not really an instructional video, but it includes footage of very good skiers demonstrating a variety of turns and maneuvers, from basic wedge turns to high-speed carved turns. Beyond just good images of carving, you can also see the same fundamentals involved at various levels of skill development and speed, which should help any level of skier improve.
Keep in mind that the purpose of the video is to help instructors going through our certification process, by illustrating the various skiing tasks from the exams. It is not intended as an instructional video, but I think you might find it helpful.
And--both Bob Barnes from Winter Park and myself are on it. I think he looks much older than me....
