Skihack Posted August 15, 2010 Share Posted August 15, 2010 While at the Nationals, I watched as much slalom skiing as I could from Girls 2 on up to Mens 3. Alot of awesome skiers in the top of each division. One thing that caught my attention was where the water was breaking on the glide for the gates. Most of all the top skiers, the waterline break was between the front and back foot to just under the front heel. I never even once saw water breaking at the front of the front foot. This goes against everything I have read about binding placement. So, it looks as if one hole back is better. The two skiers that stand out in my mind as incredible in style and how wide and early they skied were Kat Warner and Ruth McCreary. McCreary was incredibly wide and early and effortless at 32 off. Awesome skiing for Girls 2. I think she ended up with 1 1/2 at 35 off, but she lost the handle for no reason. Her 35 off appeared to me to be very runnable even with the tail wind. Watch this girl ski if you get the chance, she will soon be skiing in Open Women no doubt. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
