McGlashan , Bellieau and Lorenz are almost memes in the tech skiing world.

Like the style - shame you can only see what's going on in slo mo - quite a lot of rebound off the snow.

Needs to stand up taller, introduce more dynamism and use a more positive pole plant.

Retraction turns

sames as cross under?
unweight smoothly managing rebound
stay low at transition
move the feet and knees through underneath you
place the new outside ski down delicately on edge

You could do all of that but it would be a different sort of turn IMO - I think he is nailing cross under turns in the vid

@jedster, I would call them cross under turns.

I think you would have to ask him what he was trying to show but I would try to even out the pressure on the skis throughout the turn more than he is doing. Maybe the snow was softer than he was expecting it to be so causing the skis to rebound a bit.

I don't think in terms of unweighting and start pressuring the skis again as soon as they are on the new edges.

For me, the CSCF video of Hirscher training is better.

H Harb also devalues his skill and undoubted value as an instructor by the cult like dogma he has invented to commercialise his ideas.

I agree he's doing cross unders. It's exactly how I ski; in my dreams. I can work my legs under myself, and get an early edge, but the angles he pulls are reserved purely for my imagination.

Actually, his anterior mesial arc is interfected by the oblique commulated thrust principally to that of his left side at around 40% of his turn. His right side suffers by only 25% or so. You see this consistently. This is throwing his protuberal axis off and therefore preventing him from better, or more fully engaging his upper throxicallic muscle group which distributes anflictor pexlar and grulapitary stability.

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

Just what I was thinking, though I felt his right side only suffered by 22% on every other turn.

I couldn't have put it better myself.

Great skiing no doubt, but for me it looks overly stylized and yes a bit Harold harb, skis like he has a stiff rod up his backside. Would be good to see more footage in difficult steep terrain where he would probably fall back on a more functional technique.

The Canadian fella is much better to watch because he looks looser and more natural.

Yes, but does he pull the birds? I think maybe he does.

@sledger, umm... I think he's doing what is he is because he can?

Add bumps and you'd see significantly different but just as excellent skiing.

@arcsinice, would you like to service my (mechanical) watch?

Not sure I get that - sure the upper/lower body separation with VERY quiet upper body is highly functional? One of the bedrocks of high level skiing?

@jedster, I've just watched it again, maybe I was a bit harsh, he's a great skier. The style comments were based on the wide, stiff arm carriage and slightly cosmetic pole plant. It also looks like he artificially narrows his stance, could be wrong. Jfb who also features in a lot of these videos has a more natural looking stance and looks better to me.
