Someone has suggested that I open a new thread so not to hijack other people's thread, good suggestion, thanks. So here it is, first of all, I apologize for any hijacking that I caused, and secondly, good to see all you folks still "alive and kicking," :) kudos. Here I start the thread, imo, the art of skiing lays in how the skier balances the centripetal force and centrifugal force, as well as balancing the gravity. The lines that the skier left behind reflect the spirits as well as the skills of the skier.
SE - If you find your friend's skiing intriguing also because of the spins and backwards skiing, check out this older flick.
Here's how we do it nowadays,
Have fun, :)
