Ballers dont do as I did, been sking the coarse 18 years and I think I wasted the first 10 ... I mean i progressed as the years went... But with no coach, hand driving, bad speedo,bad drivers, no speed control and mainly bad form...I became a scraper, Speed control and the Internet changed the sport...I was able to study the sport to learn how to ski well.. Also going to ski events, getting involved makes one learn and want to improve..
Skier, study the sport and get around better skiers so you dont waste your summers.
I ran 150 35's this years... I need 38 ! I want more.
