I'd greatly appreciate any comments, tips or critique on the video, shot a week ago on a easy slope in Avoriaz, France, during our 14 day outing. I have been working on a cleaner carve, staying more centred and/or forward, but I'm struggling to create the necessary angulation on steeper slopes to keep the speed under control whilst carving (on steeper terrain). Unfortunately I don't have any usable video of me attempting to carve on steeper (European) reds and black slopes. Whether my problems in creating the necessary edge angles is a mental or “technical” problem – I can’t really figure out
Maybe I should mention that since the video was shot I have bought new boots (Salomon X3 CS 10), in which I'm very happy, replacing my Lange Fluid 12's I'm wearing in the video. After playing around with the shaft canting on the Salomon's, I feel I'm able to get a cleaner carve, and to some extent also more angulation - although not nearly as much as I'm striving for.
Let me know what you all think :-)

Thanks alot in advance
