Abstem

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I’m scanning the ski mags at Albertsons when I come across Skiings article by Gordy Phieffer teaching us how to ski the fast line slow.

Bob, did you get your undies in a bundle when you saw that?

There is a whole series of photos with it – just like the ones posted here earlier in the Abstem/hh thread. Pretty interesting.

Thanks, CW--I haven't seen the article, but I'll check it out. I don't generally even look at the supermarket ski rags anymore--too depressing!

If Pfeiffer's really advocating skiing the "fast line slow" as a habit (not that we don't sometimes have to be able to do this), that's even more evidence that the rags are out of touch!

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

No, it was more of a skidding is not a sin and can be appropriate in the right situations. Just thought I'd razz you.

Well, in that case, CW, I agree with Pfeiffer 100 percent!

It's kindof a cool little piece by gordy. I like that he's indirectly saying what ski teachers have been saying for years. Versatility is great. So you can carve, great, but can you skid, adjust line, feather the carve, and anything else that may be called for to put your skis exactly where you want them at the speed you want them to be going.
I like the razz, cw, but I'm thinking bb would like the piece as well, even if it does seem to go against his signature phase. Anyway,

Until the next time,
