As this late reply may suggest, i've been quite busy lately. I don't think i've ever told you guys this but i'm a young'un and am in the process of completing my final year of school.
Back when i was asking about how to get out of the wedge, i'd just come home from my first week of skiing ever and i was (and still am) totally hooked.
I repeated the trip this year. The snow was AWESOME!! and i really did have one of the best times of my life. I hired out a set of carve skis which saw the parallel turns come alot easier, and the ugly head of the wedge *almost* vanish.
Thanks alot for thinking of me! I've been lurking around here every now and then but i havn't had much time or info to post.
