Mammothcruzer loaned me his copy of Lito's video "The New Skis". I must say, I was a bit shocked by Lito's skiing. I really expected such a high profile instructor to be a more technical skier. Is he full cert? His stance is fairly back, he never flexes his ankles, and he banks and rotates all over the place. His extension is straight up at best, he never seems to extend down the hill. He talks about carved turns while demoing a skidded one. He refers to his wife as being an expert skier, but I just don't see it. Her stance is a bit less back than Litos, but come on! The content of the lesson was ok. I am not real big on teaching a step, but hey, I guess teaching unnesesary movements gives you something to sell the next lesson. Although, I am not sure Lito can actually roll his edges, and not step. I have always enjoyed reading Lito's mag articles, and books, like "Wilderness Skiing", I guess I am just a little disapointed that such a prolific instructor is a very average skier.
