Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

No no wait a minute.
Just look at him. He's all wrong.
Doesn't he know he should look like a robot skiing, and have a monotonous rhythm so he looks like an instructor's Youtube video?
But no. Not him.
Turns all inconsistent.
Loses contact with the snow in transition.
Back seat; front seat; no seat.
Lands on the inside ski.
Leans in. Leans back.
Arms waving about. Arms behind him.
Inclination and no angulation.
Feet too close together.
He's all over the place.
Look. He wedels. He pushes the tails out. Skids. Ugh.
And he skis off piste with the wrong equipment. Piste skis in deep snow, I ask you. What a dork. Get some wide planks idiot.
If we gave him some shaped skis, he'd fall all over the place. I'm sure. Nothing would work.
Worst of all, no helmet, no goggles. And not a logo in sight. His skiwear must be rubbish. He's going to die of hypothermia after hitting one of those trees.

Well. Nothing to learn here. Maybe at après this guy can dance a bit, but his skiing's so old style, I've watched lots of Youtube technique videos and he has no idea how to ski.
I expect he never won anything.
He clearly needs lessons. Needs drills too. Learn to ski, for heaven's sake.
And no soundtrack. Rubbish video.

No no wait another minute.
He's wonderful.
Lots to learn.
Repertoire and variety.
Loose and stylish.
Freedom and expression.
Natural and unforced.
Doesn't look like he's out to impress anyone, not even himself.

Which would you rather be?

For classic ski films look no further than Greg Stump productions with Scott Scmidt, Mike Hattrup, Glen Plake etc. Films entitled "The Blizzard of Aaahh's", Lincense to Thrill" etc.

Yes some lessons in style and elegance there something which is perhaps neglected today? If we think of skiing as a form of ‘dance’ then expression and style become more important. It’s not just getting down the mountain but how you get down it Laughing

You all know that skiing achieved its zenith with ski ballet back in the 80's. At no time before, nor since has skiing been more graceful, nor knees popped more efficiently.

@Richard Sideways: Arf. Very Happy

Here's Suzy. Again. Looks graceful enough? And her knees look all right to me. So does the rest of her too.

This first one doesn't play directly on SH unfortunately.
I believe it was made in 2011, which if it's right, would make her 65 at the time.

Nearly right though.
Once upon a time in 3V the zip on my ski jacket broke.
My mate's girlfriend offered her spare thinking I'd got to say no.
I don't like to waste money.
So I skied the rest of the week in a bright shiny purple woman's one-piece.
It was great.
Except it was loose in bum area, tight at the crotch, waist and armpits, but plenty of room for the chest.
Not a lot of pockets.
I got a lot more smiles than usual from women in ski lifts that week.
I'm sure it was admiration and support.
My mate's girlfriend said only a man who was very confident of his sexuality would have dared.
So there.

@Crevasse dweller
Now I remember, PJ Proby used to wear something similar on stage.
Could have explained some of those more admiring smiles.
Right turn seemed a bit dodgy that week.
I remember thinking at the time it must be the equipment.
Now, there's something all these so-called analysis videos fail to mention.
And something even the more hands-on instructors don't want to get to grips with.
