Newbie to this forum and looking for advise on how I can resolve one particular problem with my skiing
I am have been skiing on & off over the past 10 years - generally no more than twice per season. I am comfortable on greens and most blues. The problem I find myself having is with my left leg which seems to have a mind of its own. For example, I could be skiing on a gentle slope in a straight line and my left ski will want to move left-to-right and right-to-left. At times it would cross over with my right ski - I do not seem to have any control at all. The slightest edge or bump can throw me off and cause me to fall.
As I don't seem to be in control, I have difficulties mastering blues and safely navigating greens at higher speeds. As I go down the slopes I find myself having to turn more often turn I'd like for fear of gaining to much speed and losing control. Furthermore, as I turn, I sometimes lose control of my left leg (since the skis don't seem to respond to my instructions).
By way of background, I have previously injured my MCL (twice, both low grade injuries due to rugby) and additionally have had surgery on my left tibual. I ski with a hinged knee brace and use my own boots.
Hope to find some answers to this problem since I'd like to improve and be able to teach / assist my son's skiing
