While looking for something else on YouTube, I came across this video. It's really, REALLY impressive skiing:
You see a lot of those sort of gross balance correction moves with freeheelers. I can't speak for all, but most of us lack the fine motor skills of a typical alpine skier.
That's what struck me about it, too.
Those are absolutely beautiful turns he's making, AND they're switch, AND (AND) they're tele.
It's just mind-boggling how good some people are at this skiing thing.
