Hello everyone, today was my first day up for the season and the mountain I went to got 12 inches of fresh powder. I brought my Black Diamond Verdicts with the 102mm waist. I have never skied such a fat ski before coupled with the fact that this was my first run of the season. I could initiate left turns easily, especially hop turns and long turns. Now the left foot, I'm not sure what it is, but I just could not turn right for the life of me. I felt as if the radius of the ski caused it to not dig in and turn right. For the first half of the day I kept finding myself in the back seat until after lunch where I corrected this. I could now make most of my right turns but sometimes my left leg would just flake out and I would go down in a cloud of powder. It felt like more work than usual to get the right turn initiated while any left turn I made was easy, fast and smooth. IS it because I do not trust my left leg to hold the edge? Or am I just not attacking the turn enough. Thanks!
