I was hoping to get some help with a speed related problem, especially when skiing tracked out steep areas. As a bit of background, I'm 6'6, 250 and learned to ski on New England groomed. My current skis are 185 Metron M:EX's, because poor kids can't afford more than one pair.
To the issue, whenever I ski steeper tracked out areas, I have a lot of trouble controlling my speed. I either fly down the mountain at an unsafe speed that I can't control for more than a handful of turns, or I'm relegated to looking like an idiot taking absurdly wide turns. Obviously, physics has a lot to with this, but I was wondering if there was any way to work on skiing a bit slower while still maintaining good form.
On a related note, skiing powder doesn't present the same issue, because it has an obvious slowing mechanism built in. Thanks for any and all help given.
