This season, it took me about 15 skis outings to get my confidence back. Put it in the account of age or early season snow conditions, but it's not unusual.
What I rediscovered in the last day, however, was my theory of “pelvic thrust” discussed last March, as a way to initiate turns in more difficult terrains and steeper slopes. I was able to observe it last year without fully comprehending the way it worked.
Now, after even explaining it to my wife, I understand it better.
Pelvic thrust is the ticket to all challenging turns and the remedy against “lazy skiing”!
