Baller Laz Posted July 11, 2011 Baller Share Posted July 11, 2011 After thinking it was just a gimmick, I finally decided to learn the one-handed gate. I had only run 28' off 3 times, usually with a helpful headwind. I kept getting lousy gates, poor acceleration and would ski straight to ball one, turn and get slack. I learnt the theory behind the one-handed gate from Paul Roberts here at SummerSki, tried it out a few times then practiced it for two days of free skiing. Then, I took it to the course. After a few passes to work out the timing, I suddenly made it up the line and to 5@32' off, 34mph. Very exciting. That was almost a full pass improvement with the one-handed gate. Now I'm a believer but I gotta keep working to prevent this from being just a lucky set. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
