    I would guess 38.  But who cares?  She's cute and she skis.  Next question:  Can she drive?

    The only way you could improve this image would be if she were deaf, dumb and owned a liquor store.

    I watched it several times.  Good skiing.  But she needs to quicken the one-handed gate process - stays in her glide too long - needs to pull out later.  Also, she does a "split-radius" turn at 2 and 4 - that causes the tip rise and delay coming out of 2 and 4.  I know because I do the same thing.  Its hard to let the ski go out naturally - we feel we have to "kill" speed instead of using it.  Otherwise, pretty clean pass.

    Dude that is 38. Come on. You can nit pick but she makes it look easy.

    No doubt it is good skiing - stated so.  I wouldn't say she made it look "easy" but she was in control of the pass.

    So how come I've never heard of her?  Surely she must be one of the top 10 female skiers in the world if she can run -38 like that?

    She has won two stops. Yes, this is her big "break out" year but you will see a lot more of her in the next few years dont worry about that!

    There would be a fair few who are running it here and there in practice. Just like the guys do with 41,

    Guess I should come out from under my rock now, huh?  (Hey, I have two young kids, a day job, my own startup, and my water ski addiction.  It's only because I'm hurt that I even have time to be posting on this forum!)

    Anyhow, awesome work by Karina and I wish her the best of luck in the future.
