Here's another. Jaw is still "workin it!" Amazing to see the separation of the skis compared to the separation between his inside boot and inner thigh.

Anyone else find it strange that the outside ski is so straight in the first picture?

Consistency is important.
Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.

So cool, it is amazing how this gy can develop such angle. I wondered if in the last picture he lost some counteracting !
anyway that's great skiing

In the 1st and 2nd photo is the outside ski not bent because he is actually putting weight on his butt? In the other pictures, where his ass is not on the ground, the ski is bent and there is snow spraying off of it.

Here's an "artsy" photo of Ted. I'm sucker for B&W and particularly like this shot. He gets such huge angles! (with the snow spray it almost looks like water skiing!)

Why is his outside arm up so high?

Blocking gates on the low-side can jam the arm (hand, elbow, shoulder, ouch!) so he's probably in the right spot. He's not thinking..."NSPP..!"

I should have asked "in the first photo", but now that is gone....
