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 :-)

Is carving more tiring than skidding?

Iike to carve turns because I enjoy it, first taught the principle by instructors in Andorra in the 80s. Theres a cross mountain trail in Soldeu that follows the contour of the mountain with many twists & turns, on my old 200cm gs skis I would try to carve it from end to end, going wide, clipping the apex & crapping myself as the carve took me witin a few cm of the edge as I came out of the turn but doggedly holding the carve. Cool
Frewuently, on high speed schusses, I'll put the skis on edge just to keep them more stable & still go just as fast putting a few turns in.
On moderate slopes it is less tiring to carve by flopping the knees over to lock the skis on edge & just hang there, putting no effort at all in.
Once you are a decent standard, the whole right / wrong thing is ballcocks, its about what you enjoy, so many people pursuing perfection when they don't even enjoy what they are wanting to learn, no point in learning perfect carving if you don't enjoy it when you get there.

So ... is someone with a gps and a heart rate monitor going to step up and do back to back runs at the same speed for the sake of science?
