Basically, my question is: Is this transition possible? Can I get this upside down before the fall line?
Im not sure I know how to read that graph but I have a good imagination and that tells me the following: lets number the graphs 1 to 5 right to left. Starting at the top. Green is your legs and blue your upper body. Since this is a doublefreekinghahnenkamleviblack slope lets just pretend that you are not carving edge locked but rather brushing.
1. you are comming out of your previous turn with high edge angles, your outside leg extended, upper body countered and you show strong angulation... going across the slope that BTW is very very very steep.... you are wound up with some tention between upper and lower body
2. you have just relesed your previous turn and you are starting to flex your outside leg.... you are de-tipping.... your CoM is starting to move down the hill... your skis remain edged and are still running across the hill... you are angulated but your upper body counter has changed to anticipation and there... no unwinding yet because you are still on your old edges
3. you are in the middle of transition and perpendicular at the slope with legs flexed even more than in previous graph.... your legs are starting to unwind since their edges are releced
4. this graph should be offsetted down the slope because your skis have alredy started to point down the hill and this upside/down position is not upside/down but across the slope
5. this is how you end up but its the wrong way arround.... should look like graph 1 except insted of pointing your butt at us you are now facing with a smile on your face... and yes, this graph should be offsetted even more than graph 4
Did this make any sence?
