Looks like a bunch of corruption in this thread.
In reply to Bonni, I posted that a e gate flush is a series of 3 gates (six poles in all ), 6 meters wide that are aligned on the fall line, with 3/4 ( 0.75 ) meters between each gate.
IIRC, SLATZ posted that a three gate flush is handled by one angulated turn into the first gate, clearing with the outside hand, followed by a straight run that shoulders the next gate with the inside shoulder, and then the third gate is cleared with the same hand as used in clearing the first gate, while angulating a turn as necessary to get set up for the next gate in the course.
A four gate flush would be: clear outside, shoulder, shoulder, clear outside. The clears would use different hands.
I posted a detailed description that I would rather not try to post again, but it's main points were:
1) ensure that the transition out of the first angulated turn that brought you into the flush starts before you actually enter it, so the actual transition from edge to edge occurs while crossing gate 1 -- a very vertical line.
2) gate 2 then is a straight run through, with transition as you go through.
3) gate 3 is angulated as needed to set up the next turn on course.
A four gate flush involves sort of a "wiggle" while standing tall and shouldering of gates 2 and 3. I suggested that the weight transfer during the wiggle would be helped if there was a small tip lead of the inside ski....
If the RH is used to clear the top pole of gate 1 on entry, then the LH is used to clear the bottom pole of gate 3 and top of gate 4 on exit.
