Snowbender - about Bode - he is definitely unique and soooo strong. He goes for it and is constantly adapting all the time. What an athlete. It'd be great to be able to perform like he does. One thing you can say for sure in every turn, from the stivots to the rounder arcs, Bode certainly shows it's about two lines - one for your body and one for your skis. Certainly a mental game there too.
Yes, the way he jumps into that 2nd slipping-turn demonstrates he sees the line before it exists.
One of the really cool things that I almost like the best about skiing is that it totally transports you into another world. You forget about everything else and live in the moment - and what a great moment that is! More Zen huh
Yes, be oneness with gravity, the world is all yours. And that's Taichi Skiing.
