So I demoed some Rossignol S90 womans skis that were 150cm in length today. At first, they felt really heavy and weird but by the end of the day I could definatly tell a difference in my skiing. They "surf" more on powder rather than sink and drive through it like a submarine and they ski backwards as well as they do forwards to make for good 180 landings. They do handle bumpy, choppy terrain better but this is DEFINATLY my weak spot in my skiing. When I try to make a turn, I feel way more out of control than going straight but then I get going too fast. Some times I hit some pow I don't see and it bucks me forward. (any tips? as a lesson may not be an option for a month or so)
I really want to get to the point where I feel I am in control more at higher speeds. When I ski out of a landing from a drop I feel like I am just flying almost out of control and then when I turn, since I am not in a 100% carve, my out side ski goes all over and slams into moguls etc. . Sometimes I find myself on a narrow traverse and I feel like I am going too fast for comfort, like a series of bumps develope and really toss me around like my skis go over the face of a bump going fast and then slam into the face of another bump making my knees fly into my chest and I almost crash. What can I do to make my skis jump and fly around less when I am going fast on bumps, and just make them smoothely ride along in higher speeds? This problem mostly occurs when I am turning. Should I go up in length or is it my teqhnique?
And by the end of the day, my skiing was better with those Rossie skis but I couldn't tell if I was still getting used to them and I would ski them even better?
