I put some photos up for the family but thought I would share to see if anyone had any comments on the technique used by the subjects.

Pierre, I'm not sure I know what you mean by a "tucked knee". It's a bit hard to tell in the photos because of back lighting and black pants, but my knee is typically up against the front cuff of my uphill boot. Is this what you mean by a tucked knee?

Or is a tucked knee where a skier places the downhill knee behind the calf of the uphill leg?

BTW, thanks for the feedback.<FONT size="1">

Pierre eh's! comment on alignment is a good one. But it's really hard to tell in still photos. A-frames were in vogue not to long ago, and not to say this is right or wrong, but Bill, a little bit more attention to a more active inside leg might get your photo on the cover of Ski Magazine. -------Wigs

Thanks for the feedback. I find that when I'm skiing the hard pack that I really load up my downhill leg and relax the uphill one. When skiing the crud, chop, and soft snow I balance out my stance more.

Also, those Bandit XXXs are pretty wide and require a more exagerated angulation to get them on edge on hard pack.

I would like to know from the instructors in the forum what level of improvement I could expect from a private lesson? My sister, a former full cert PSIA instructor told me that most of my adjustments would be minor and would take an instructor with a solid technical eye to make any real difference.

I hadn't thought of taking a lesson for some 20 years now until she said some small adjustments might help.
