I have been using the one handed gate with good success. I reckon I can get wider though, which should be a big help at 12m and below.
I have been looking at Ski Dawg's video as well as TW as they get really wide before the turn, their approach seems to involve a "glide" before the turn in. (As opposed to Rossi or Jason Mc)
Does anyone have any tips or opinions on this as the timing seems really critical. What I have been finding is that once on the glide (flat ski) it's really difficult to control the "turn in" and also really hard to maintain a tight line
Note: I'm still working on the idea that with the one handed gate I am turning in with speed rather than dropping back on the line (like a two handed gate) - I'm taking hits that I really don't want this early in the season!
Alternatively I may move back to switching edge immediately and avoiding a flat ski glide. In which case any tips to getting wider? Is it necessary ?
To glide or not to glide?
