So here is my question/scenario: This weekend I was at Stratton (hey tickets were comped - no comments) in Spring conditions. Thick mush by the late morning/early afternoon. I ski Legend 8K - for those who don't know the tail has a slight up turn.
My buddy said he could not ski behind me because I was kicking up huge rooster tails once we got moving. My question is was this related to the conditions, a flaw in my technique, a combination of the two or something else. After he commented on this to me I payed attention to other skis of similar design and did not observe the same phenomenon. I asked him if it looked like I was skidding through turns and he said no, I was carving through although slightly washing out at the end. (I thought I knew how to ski until I read Big skis = can't ski). Thoughts, comments?
