It was another great weekend. We kicked off the race season last Saturday. While everyone may not have had the success they were looking for, I saw some good skiing! Don't lose sight of the amount of training you had going into the race. It wasn't a lot. Nice job to everyone.
It was a very productive weekend. We spent time on SL skis focusing on a few things. First, was getting very balanced on the ski. Yes one ski. The step change in everyone's skiing after skiing on one ski was very noticeable. What does one skiing help us do? Many things. It forces you to use your inside edge to carve, and your outside edge. The pole touch helps with you in the transition from your old turn to your new turn. You do all this while maintaining and good balanced position and upper body facing down the hill and the result is good skiing. Everyone did great and I can't wait to do it again this weekend!!
