Therusty, tdk, softsnowguy, ron white,
thanks for excellent feedback and analysis! This really is a great forum!
Totally agree, I've been thinking a lot how I could make me skiing more dynamic. Thanks therusty for great tips on this!
Countering & anticipation:
I really need to work on that. Btw, this was the first time somebody could explain me the right way of upper body countering, thank you therusty & tdk - again! I have received so much complicated and even conflicting advice on how to position the upper body when doing turns... even from ski coaches. But, now this finally starts to make sense!
The a-framing and boot alignment:
Something (custom insoles) has been done, but that definitely is not enough. Wish we had some competent boot fitters here in Finland! :) tdk, do you know anyone?
SoftSnowGuy, thanks for accurate analysis. Yep, I learned to ski on the early 90s and I have quite a few "old school movements" still hindering my progress. Pole plant is one thing, bizarre up-down movement is another. I took me really long to get rid of "up-unweighting", and crouching is now what is left from that. I have to concentrate more, and try the drills you suggested. The faulty pole plant is maybe the most complicated issue to fix on my own. I think I have to consult some coach with that.
Inside ski weighting:
I actually keep my inside ski very light. The balance is about 90% (outside) - 10% (inside). I used to lift (just slightly) the tail of the inside ski before, liked it, but some coach told me not to do so. Should I begin do that 2-3 cm lift again? :)
