Why does my right arm want to drop back when I don’t have cants on my right ski or boot?
I have two sets of ski set-ups in two different locations. Home: Cants between skis and bindings with a “neutral” ski boot. Vacation Home: Neutral ski/binding set-ups with canted boot soles (Daleboot). With these set-ups I don’t have to fight my hand/arm position.
Yesterday I tried out some powder skis I got for cheap this summer in a bit of fresh wet powder. I didn’t bother with the cant strips since the skis are relatively fat and designed for the fluffy stuff, which was a mistake. I struggled with keeping my right arm forward, which is what always happened before I was canted. OK, cant strips are in order. Still, I was wondering what mechanically is going on, and how it correlates with arm position?
If this makes a difference for me, others have to be in the same boat...
