Can anyone help. Give me crud or good old southern hemisphere wet heavy powder (I know, a contradiction in terms)on any slope no matter how steep and I can nail it. Give me hard pack or ice on any slope (even a green run)and I wave goodbye to my wife as she rips off down the hill and I try to find an edge in total panic. I am a good skier. Skied with Geoff Zell many years ago when he was world number 2 extreme and could keep up anywhere. He suggested I muscled my skiing rather than having a stable centred approach. He felt it was my size (6'1" - 230lbs - plenty of gym enhanced muscle)that was my problem. Can anyone of a similar build give me any ideas on how they got over the muscle approach and got their butt centred. My approach works but I am knackered by lunch time and can't keep up with my wife when it gets hard under foot.
