I thought this thread was going to be about some kind of fly-on-the-wall documentary on the mystical organisation known as 'Ski Control'.. rolling eyes

I've had another go in the hall with the ski holding exercise. Getting better and it certainly shows what a very dynamic position is like. Unlike the chap on the video I do have a beer gut, but it's no good for holding the pole! I may go the next step and try it in ski boots next to see what that feels like and if I stand a chance of replicating it on the mountain. Going to write myself a list of drills!

The one called "Short, camp turns"? (Well, that's what I read it as and that's what they looked like Laughing .)

Just back from a great week in La Ros and have to say that the little toe thing was a revelation. Was much more balanced over both skis, stopped the drift of the inside ski and could really feel both skis working together.

There's a clip which I'll post for further advice but it's a series of five or six long radius turns with two beautiful parallel edge marks trailing behind me.

Thanks!

@narbs, I can see the effort you've put in to get the inside ski 'biting' earlier. yes , it's a very nice feeling.

Yes, i had to squint even on youtube.

Well, it wasn't me who talked about an early inside ski edge but i'm glad it has helped you. IMV it works best if skis are not too far apart as it's possible to slip onto the inside ski all too easily especially on bumpier terrain where balancing is more difficult...

Pleased sH's collectively have helped...Happy Skiing...

The way I got round this was to actively initiate the turn with the inside ski. Some of the american instructors reccomend this. Harald Harb worth a google.

Turn starts by tipping inside ski onto little toe. Not weighted just do it and then transfer weight on onto outside ski happens automatically.

He is also big into pulling feet back, not throwing weight forward, active retraction he calls it.

Good luck!

@motdoc, Yes, that works but imv it's one technique that's overworked and over relied upon by many i see worshiping PMTS technique...and many of HH practitioners are quite cultist, believing everyone one else is misguided and needs conversion - sad and just wrong...

There's so much to accomplished, masterful all-round skiing in all conditions...
