Hey Kevin, Copper Ski Instructor uniforms are red now, not Smurf Blue! Did I get that Smurf reference correct?
And I wear yellow at Breck now, not purple. Changes.
Bob, I really like that, slow line fast! Amusing. And, fast line slow. Nice.
You can definately do that down a "wider zipper line", but here's another option...
Every bump run has these "hills" on it;
Downhill side of Bumps, Black (or double)
Uphill side of the Bumps, Green (or UP)
And the "in-between" places...
The in-between places are great places to "stitch your line". A little less bumpy, and conforming more closely to the overall tilt of the hill.
Connect these spots, in the arc of the turns..
Use a "wide radar" vision to see those lines Don't just look down the zipper, try too see about twice as wide as the turns you are making... Options, options, at every turn.
As you get better, you'll look farther down the hill, and visualize lines through bumps, as they show up, moving down the hill AND seeing and stitching a nice round turn every 3-5 bumps...
Wheeee! Favorite Meditation Technique.
In other words, dont get caught up in the big holes and drops, those are other peoples repeated mistakes".
You know, those big ugly holes, wall shapes, and berms created by "not round" turns being done by others on your favorite bump run on a busy day.
Still gotta absorb & extend to keep proper pressure control. Shhhhhh! Quiet skis!
It ain't the zipperline, it's Terrain Ignortion Turns!
