While looking for something else on YouTube, I came across this video.  It's really, REALLY impressive skiing:

 

 

Wow.

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.

Is that a remixed version of the Last of the Mohicans theme?

That first segment of the carving looks fun!  The switch tele is the schizz.  I can't ski switch like that on alpine equipment .

 

That Norway place looks pretty cool too.

 

Thanks,

JF

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.

Wow! 

 

It is  all great, but when this guy skiing: tele, switch, on ONE SKI  !

 

Amazing skier, but can he spell?  Thanks for posting that.

Unbelievable.  I particularly liked nailing the back flip to the steep skiing.  I wonder what Charlie McArthur would have to say about that?  Charlie, are you out there?
