I am new here. I have skiied all my life and wasn't really into it and did it like 3 times a season. I mostly motocross but now that it is Winter I can't so I decided this winter instead of sitting on my bum waiting for winter to be over I would ski. I bought a season pass to Alta ski resort and have been going there. I will try to describe my skill level, I do the few tame black runs at alta and go on not groomed runs occaisonaly. I my powder skiing capabilities is like that of a beginner hard pack skier. I have only gone in powder a few times and the times I went in I crashed. Any tips for skiing powder? I have some rossignol viper x1 skis which are beginner skis. They are about 1 inch below my chin when they are upright. I can turn parralel on groomed runs also.
I have a question though:
- What is some advice for skiing in snow not groomed or powder? It looks way fun for the poeple who are good at it. (we got 11 inches of snow last night)
- I try to lean forward as much as I can because I can turn better but how important is it that I keep my skis really close together?
- I am headin back up tommorow and was wondering if I should try going into some black diamond powder?
-could my skis be keeping me from improving or is it just my skill level?
Thanks for the advice!
