Until two seasons ago, I was skiing on Kastle straight skis (200 cm). I've developed years of technique that has allowed me to ski most of the mountain. I would pressure the tails of my skis at the finish of a turn for a delightful pop that would transition me into my next turn. Now I'm skiing 172 cm Dynastar Legend 4800's and my technique no longer works. If I pressure the tail at the end of my turn, it throws me off balance and I skid my turn. I'm still getting used to the feel of a shaped ski. Obviously I have to unlearn 18 years of skiing on straight skis. Any pointers on how I can do this?
