In your case I'd watch closely how much pelvic rotation (counter) you develop to the outside of each turn. Notice how much develops in the direction that is working well and compare that to how much pelvic counter develops while turning in the other direction.
This, combined with the degree of Tip-Lead that develops may explain a lot.
I adjusted my boot a bit and it was way better. It was -20 with 4cm fresh on day old cordaroy we,s was cooken all day!!!
I softened up the flex on the out side of the left boot and kept the insides stiff. This helped me to get the boot to flex more to the outside in the turn. It worked first to last run. We were laying over big high speed turns down the face all day with out any trouble. I may have been a little more body posture contious at the same time which always helps since the fellow I was skiing with was an ex world cup skier.
I love it when we ski together because in order to keep up I need to be on the ball. Every run is better than the last. Im pretty sure I wasnt bring my skis around as fluent turning left and had not enough on the inside skis edge over the outsides. I try to apply equal pressue on boath skis when I can. By alowing my boot to flex better in the direction I needed to go helped eleaveate the chatter or hopping of the ski. That and contiously making sure I was over the ski in the turn. I usually dont think about it very much these days but it was maybe a good thing because the problem made me get more aware that I was perhaps forming a bad habbit. Kneale Those are the guys I ski with on a regular basis Instructors and patrol. They let me know when Im doing something I shouldnt or subtely mention it in a round about way.
I can ski front side parabolics with know issues ever. Any thing any time with form but the beasts I ski with are a differant animal that only works at warp speed. Im looking for a more traditional Hart accualy like the ski called the one buy Hart. It has 62mm of side cut 132/96/122 in a 182cm. That would be a lot more carvey and still be able to charge any thing. This full out attach skiing has its days but every day lately is starting to wear on me.
Maybe. Phill Get me a pair of those badboys with dukes! for 500 bucks or less.
