Slalom MA

Some turns from a super-combined slalom leg...


I have been coaching all year and haven't had much time in the gates. (wild left arm)


I won the run by .06

Compare the fundamentals of your turns to those of Maria Riesch's and let us know what you see.

upper body stability and earlier edge engagement higher in the turn, as a result she stays in the fall line much longer than I do. Much more consistant pole plant

Really amazing balance and quickness.  A little surprised you finished the course by your position in the last turn in the video.  Possibly slightly more progressive ankle flex past the gate will give you a more controllable transition and better body position early in the turns.

I'm working on switching edge early and applying pressure higher in the turn... I think overflexing my anckles might be a bi product of this as I haven't yet adapted from my older technique
