I used to do those turns all the time Spag. Still do sometimes, playing around when I am not in clinic or uniform. Actually, sometimes in uniform. Hell, I turn around using the ol-fashioned "dogger" tip drag too.
I don't stay in that "style" anymore, but it's still fun. It is ineffecient, and kind of "old" style, now.
Hmmm, did you grow up skiing in da bumps, just like I did?
Bumps were my holy grail, early on, and I still love them. Bumper style...
I still like to sink down, put the skis flat, and shimmy. No gold pants tho...
"wiggle ze skis like Edgar Gropiron." Harder to do on radical shapes tho...
POP off the snow sometimes... It's FUN to bend the crap out of the skis. Booooiiiingggg, sound (almost) of a Volant popping off the snow.
Did you used to have an overly flexed, forward-lean-itis kind of turn? I sure did. Funny how a certain focus on sking gives you "habits".
Geez, you know your comedy Notorious "Disco" One! Ever watch Jimmy Glitz?
Every time I release (or even pop) a turn, I go like this in my head: Nininina, Nananana... Just like Chevy Chase in Caddyshack. Unless the tunes are on. It's something to share with students, sometimes, when things are too serious, or scared, or "herky jerky". Make a noise, for timing, eh?
As I am originally from MN, I still consider myself qualified to use the "eh"? sound.
JUST so you'll feel better Spag... I actually (shuudddder) showed up for lineup at Breck in '94 with the white Salomon Disco Boots. And got crap for it too, just in case you and Robin were wondering.
