Week day training
This week has been good so far for free ski training. 5 skiers Monday and 3 today. Yunomaru ski jo was actually busy both days with school children. Today was their last day.
Since the run is so flat, we have been working on fast balance changes and the first phase of edging with our knees and ankles. Consistent balance changes from foot to foot. Well, I have gone through all the phases of the turn actually. Drilling on the basics! When we are doing any technical drill I want everyone to look ahead and see everything down the hill. Too many of you have a bad habit of looking at the snow directly in front of you. Our vision should be wide. When we get into gates we want to see not only one gate but sets of gates in front of us.
Bye for now.
