skicoug Posted September 25, 2008 Share Posted September 25, 2008 Maybe someone can just direct me to another great thread about theories about the point of hooking up. From the discussing about edge change.....and casting out or carry out, I was very impressed with Bruce Butterfields, John Miller's, and David Nelson's and I think Thomas Wayne had a great piece as well.So it seems to me that the latest theories suggest that we should try and finish the turn by carryingÃ‚Â as much speed through the finish of the turn and try to hook up and load as late as possible.Ã‚Â I think Chris Rossi even said that he was trying to refine his skiing to the point that he would never hookup.Maybe I am conceptulizing (sp?) this wrong but it seems that the acceleration phase starts with hooking up. So if we are trying to hookup later and edge change earlier than there is not much distance to accelerate?So is it more correct to think that we need to apex wide and early of the ball and finish the turn with angle and speed......but it isÃ‚Â OK to hook up near the buoy?Ã‚Â Looking forward to your ideas.Ã‚Â Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
