So can you give me some examples of how to turn parallel accomanied with short description and youtube video clips for visuals? And you are free to categorise it according to your own liking. Like always people love to comment on others postings but are not very eager to come with own consructive input. BTW, pritty awsome skiing by Myhrer this weekend in Levi....


Sorry, I don't collect this type of material.

I don't really like categorising. You have some basic skills like edging, angulation, steering, rotation, unweight movements, transitions, for-aft, turn shape, turn radius, line selection etc. They can be combined in an almost infinite amount of combinations

Yes, myhrer did great, unfortunately I was traveling so I missed it on TV. What happened to Pallander?

You dont have to collect such material. Just type it down and look for a video on youtube as attachement. Start with imagening how to teach a stuent how to ski parallel.

 

It was a great race. Palander made an easy misstace at the top flat part. He said it was a typical inside ski misstace when interviewed. The course was very straight and fast. The ridges tricky as always.

Hi Race Coaches and Interested Bears:

 

Just for the edification of my MA skills, for what ever reason (may have been purposefully or some other reason), did Syindal miss the last gate?  Or was it the angle of the photographer which made it appear so?  Or is this a consequence of the "finish" gate?
 

 

Think snow,

This is called a "delay gate" (aka an "under gate" or a "banana"). With a single-panel course like this one, the racer will pass on the same side of the delay as the previous panel.

Great thread.  But when it comes to skiing, I think I prefer the KISS approach:
