Photo MA request for Jeet

Postby Jeet » Mon Jan 26, 2015 7:06 am

Hi Guys,

Finally got one of my friends to get some pictures of me skiing. iPhone died when it my turn (but will be taking plenty of videos on my next session this Thursday and then in La Plagne this Saturday, my first skiing holiday :) really cannot wait). I know a video is far better than a photo but hoping guys you can confirm my self MA and to my list below...

Background...

1. Been skiing for about 7 months
2. No previous PSIA or BASI training.
3. PMTS - Beginner
4. Only indoor skiing experience


Self MA
*********
1. Number one point (inside skii not tucked next to the stance foot). Stance way too wide
2. Lacking counteraction movements from the hip
3. The stance skii and inside skii not tipped to the same angle

Action...
**********
1. Continue with Super Phantom drills (submit a MA) (Expert Skier 1)
2. Develop free foot management with holding a nurf/ball with my legs

The photos
*************

Are you able to make a turn with your inside ski lifted?
Btw, this thread will probably be soon moved to the MA section, look for it there.

7 months... Impressive! The self MA looks pretty accurate... tough to tell without video how you are developing the edge angles in the photos.
Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.

I will send a video shortly on Thursday or after holiday (real snow :) ) you can tell a lot more. It feels like am flexing and tipping into my turns, I can do the two footed release at slow speed, find the one footed release much harder. But hey, feelings don't count for much all will be revealed in a video.

So I need more counter? that's the part I was unsure about. The inside shoulder and hip needs to lead more to the inside of the turn, but this is a progressive movement right, so it increases through out the turn, so at the end of the turn there should be maximum counter? I guess once you have found edge on the stance ski you can progressively counter through the turn using the hips. OR should you enter the turn countered?

I feel an angry mother coming on.

Look at the picture. Punching your inside hand forward while pulling your other hand back doesn't accomplish much for the lower body (which is the point).
Stand square over your skis. Put both arms out in front of you as if you were holding a large beach ball. Now maintain that relationship as you turn hips and shoulders into a countered position.
In camps we used to hold a small ~2 foot long stick between our hands to maintain that relative position while countering.

Maximum counter at the end of the turn, as much as needed, then hold your counter through transition, part of the float, then start new CA movement as the skies engage the new edges.
