Classic... that brings back memories of skiing bumps on 205 cm slalom skis.  Any idea how old that video is?  I'm guessing 15 years or so?

Now that is proof, for all the arguments on this web forum about SVMM and other mogul methods, all of those discussions centering around how adults between the ages of 14 and 30 can negotiate the moguls because as one gets older, absorbing that up and down is ridiculous, and unless one is a masochist, it's not entertainment, and it shows why modulo my generalization, Austrians as a group are the best skiers on the planet and they ski with panache and style.

 

great videos - thanks for digging them up

As one gets older, absorbing that up and down is EVERYTHING when you are in the bumps.  It's especially effective when some of us are reaching double your top number above, but still having fun in the bumps.smile.gif

Straight skis and no helmet.

Agreed.

 

you can point out the old straight skis, the narrow stance, 15yr old video,

but,

that is great skiing.

 

guys w/ those movement patterns can ski anything exceptionally well.
