jRoe Posted February 18, 2014 Share Posted February 18, 2014 I saw the topic on the guy who blew thru the slalom loops into -39. I thought I would tell the story of my son in law that just started on the coarse and just "got it". As a beginner on the coarse he really got the feel and eye for the sport. To me he has "cat balance" able to adjust quickly. He does get to watch a lot -35 and -38 on my lake, and I feel he is a guy who learns by Visual aids. His tempo, balance, ability to take coaching and apply it, makes him a quick learner. Actually he doesn't get to ski as much as one would think.... School and all. Sometime if it's been 2 weeks or so before he has skied things can get ugly. But after several days later his back in the grove. Plus it took him all of 3 months to beat my daughters score 5@22 off 34 was her best. She cool with it,,,, I'm happy I have another skier in the family. Oh he skis on my old stuff .... Started on a mapple and finished with a mid ride Can't wait til it warms up, we got skiing to do! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
