Photo for analysis

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I submit this photo for comments on my colleague's technique, particularly her pole usage.

post #2 of 23
I don't see anything that unusual - it looks like perfectly normal quadrapole technique to me.

Facinating, but can you please explain the edge change and weight
transfer process for a skier with three legs/skis?

I suspect that three legged skiers is a topic that AC would probably like us to stay well clear of. [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

This attempt at synchronized skiing is flawed. You have to watch the leader's pole plant. Earn an eight out of ten.

It's seems fairly obvious to me, in fact so obvious, I'm not going to bother explaining it.

Arc, I thought that was the 'phantom foot' move you talked about in another thread.

I'm in total agreement with Oboe....yellow boots are so out of style with ANY jacket color! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

This is the "progressive scan" trouble Bob Barnes referred to.

There is NOTHING WRONG with YELLOW!!!!!!!!!!! or being absorbant and porous for that matter

Nice outfit, but effect is rooned by loud boots. She must therefore not be an advanced skiier. Despite having twice as many poles as most skiiers.

HEY!!! I have yellow boots, and they look fine with black pants... (also, it was the only color they came in that year) Of course, I only have two, not three.

Yellow and black is fine, it means you are an expert skiier, but when you add maroon...back to Intermediate with you!

I am disappointed and disheartened by this discussion.

I had a dream that we would one day live in a world where a skier is judged, not by the color of their boots or jacket, but by their rotary movements, edge control, balance, and pressure. Clearly, that is a dream yet unfulfilled.

'Course, in that same dream every valley was to be exalted, and every hill and mountain would be made low--something which, fortunately, hasn't happened yet, either.

Yeah, cause if that happened, what would lifties do for a living? You see, the world would be left with a bunch of unemployed lifties, and I dread to think what would happen then.

Daevious, A serious picture? Who would have guessed.

IMHO, hands inside hips gives a narrow range of motion for balance. Hands close to body makes it hard to "drive" forward.

Notice I never commented on the boots. I use to ski with a British Grenadier's Feather Bonnet. It was helpful for my ski club memebers to either find me....or hide!!!

OK, K.T., I should have used smileys. I'm almost never serious. : Good comments, though.

orrighty, this is what you should've said to get the ball rolling: is there a slight a-framing happening?!
post #20 of 23
Ant, are you serious about the A-Frames? Thiose aren't even Oakley goggles she's wearing.
Please, this is an intelligent discussion about skiing, and you're off talking about the sort of eyewear the skier has. :
I mean, if you want to get down to the levels of co-ordination, it's great to see someone who has baskets that match their boots. That takes a certain level of style.

WTF WTFH, at least she is wearing eye protection of some sort whereas you're talking about baskets? She isn't carrying a basket surely you can see that in her hands she has poles and nothing over her shoulders or arms? She hasn't even got a rucksack on so who knows what you are going on about.

I move to strike WTFH's comments from the record and WTFH from the forum.

You can move all you want, in fact I'd prefer if you'd move away from Cambridge, and make way for a real man...

I don't live anywhere near Cambridge. If you ever listened to a word anyone said you would probably know that! As for a real man.... it's not a real man she wants, it's only me.

Having wathced Good Will Hunting last night the whole thing seems a little silly now so I may have to go see a girl!

Anyway enough about that. Oh sorry I didn't take the mickey about you implying you're a real man but I think I'll let the laughter eminating from computer screens all around the world answer that one for you!!
