Well, let's put that to bed: I suck. That does not mean I check my brain at the door. And FWIW the ability to "be good" as you seem to intend does not seem to be in my DNA. There... Happy? Now can we get back to the discussion?
1) You supposedly have an astute eye for MA, how about offering up the requested assessment? This does not seem like much to ask for.
2) Can someone please explain to me how anyone in any instructional camp got the crazy notion that people on modern rockered all mountain skis are "anti" carving?
3) Can someone please explain to me how anyone believes that you can "carve" a "carving" ski in real powder? I mean carving uses edges. In real powder, you get to do exactly nothing (OK, to be fair, asymptotically approaching nothing) with your edges in terms of shaping your turn - you get to use your bases (regardless of your choice of poison).
