Alpine Valley Ski Area, Michigan


I know I missed a gate.  This was the only run that was taped this day because of coaching commitments.







Heres a vid from last year

I see the same things in both videos.  Look at your transitions.  You are pushing off your old outside ski and then rotating the new outside ski onto edge.  That causes a very indirect turn entry, late edge engagement and is why you are chronically getting late on the turns.


Work on flexing the old outside leg while extending the new outside leg to move you more directly into the turn (and toward the next gate).  This will allow the skis to engage much sooner and set you up in a more balanced position.

I will work on that. Thanks Ron
